The paper provides information on medical expert systems (ES), and deals with the transformation problems of the natural medical intelligence into the artificial medical intelligence. It describes the capabilities of modern ES and development prospects. This paper also analyzes the respective situation in Azerbaijan, and shows the necessity of development of knowledge engineering and training the knowledge engineers for the medical sector in order to create e-health in Azerbaijan. It proposes to strengthen the activity in the field of implementation of the developed ES (pp.73-83).
