This paper is to integrate information technology and medical-related technologies to develop a healthcare information system for geriatric consultation services. This proposed system is divided into three subsystems: assessment scale, follow-up and result analysis. It not only can process comprehensive geriatric assessment and ensure that all patients' information are stored in standardized format, but also provide medical personnel for statistical analysis and processing purposes. Moreover, this paper uses the Apriori algorithm of data mining for helping doctors to find out the relationship of geriatric syndrome. The system of this paper can improve increase the timeliness and accuracy of patient care and administration information, increase service capacity, reduce personnel costs and improve the quality of patient care in geriatric consultation service. Furthermore, making the theories and applications of geriatric consultation services will be more extensive and convenient for researcher and healthcare-related industry.
