I think the correct answer should be E.
"As good as" is the correct idiomatic usage here. Also both "as good as" and "better than" can be used independently before "any other system...."

- as good as any other system that might be devised for the patients
- better than any other system that might be devised for the patients

(A) as good, or better than, any system that might be devised for the patients who are

Correct Idiom is "as good as"

(B) as good, or better, than any system that might be devised for patients being

Incorrect use of "being"

(C) as good, or better than, any system that might be devised for patients which are being

Incorrect use of "being"

(D) good as, or even better than, any other system that may be devised for the patients who are

Nonsensical wording

(E) as good as, or better than, any other system that might be devised for the patients

Looks good.

one system cannot be compared to itself. so it should be better than any other system and not better than any system.
This eliminates A, B, C
D - A is good as B seems incorrect. It should be A is as good as B.
E - it uses as good as. and uses any other system....Comparison of one system with any other system seems ok.

E should be the answer.

"any other system"/" any system" is it a POE?

I wouldn't judge the sentence too much on any system vs any other system. This is because it is not very clear whether the current amalgam of Chinese and Western medicine is a part of the group or not.

Current system A is better than all other current systems. (other is required here. Current system A is a part of the group)
Current system is better than any system that may be devised in the future. (other is not necessary though its use will not make it incorrect. Current system is not a part of the group of systems that may be devised in the future)
