In this paper, we are describing role of knowledge engineering in the development of a hybrid knowledge based medical information system. Knowledge engineering plays important role in development of various technologies such as: expert systems, neural network, artificial intelligence, hybrid intelligent systems, data mining, decision support systems, and knowledge based systems etc. The hybrid medical information system mainly consists of medical information system and medical knowledge base systems. These poly techniques of knowledge engineering when integrated with hybrid techniques of intelligent systems for designing, implementing knowledge bases to deal with medical informational data of Atrial Fibrillation. Atrial Fibrillation is the most common heart rhythm disorder which increases the risk of mortality and morbidity.
