This short paper describes the design of the CONSULT system, a decision-support tool intended to help patients suffering from chronic conditions self-manage their health. The system takes input from multiple sources, including commercial wellness sensors and patient’s electronic health record, to inform an intelligent backend that reasons about day-to-day health management decisions, customised for individual patients. The architecture of the system features a modular structure for allowing input from a range of different sources, a reasoning engine underpinned by computational argumentation that constructs weighted opinions using these inputs and knowledge about their sources, and an interaction agent driven by argumentation-based dialogue that responds to user queries.
