We never seem to have the time and budget to do things right, but we always seem to have the time and budget to do them again!

Thanks for alerting us to this article. One of the really positive things about the article is not just the improved care now being given but a great example of the Chief Medical Office and his senior colleagues managing/leading and setting a standard of care. He states in the article "I realize that many colleagues may see methods like ours as too intrusive on their clinical practice and may say that they don't have the time." I believe we need to see much more of this in hospitals. Too often, for example, we see DDS viewed as an end in itself rather than a tool to help with setting a standard of care and I think this explains why adoption of these tools is still relatively low.

Regards
Jason

Interesting.  My question would be how this would translate to the real world.  In this artificial environment we know whether or not the "correct" dx is in the list of suggested dx's.  That would not be the case in the real world.

This is very interesting study just published in the British Journal of General Practice which also highlights the potential value of patients using symptom checkers and handing the results to their doctor at the start of the consultation. This would get over the current technical challenges of a system automatically producing a differential from more complex cases with multiple symptoms.
