The key issue for me with this type of approach is can it actually be applied in daily clinical life? With diagnostic decisions being made in 10 minute consultations how can you practically gather the wisdom of many when you need it at that time?

The advantage of DDx Generators is their knowledge base is effectively made up of the evidenced based wisdom of many and are practical to use when you need it in a consultation.

Thanks to Nick Argy for bringing this article to attention.   The methods and findings are a bit hard to follow, but if I understand things correctly, the article finds that diagnostic accuracy can be improved by second opinions or larger groups if the diagnosticians have similarly high skill levels, but that accuracy is degraded to the extent that the variability increases.  I'd really like to hear what others get out of this paper, because these findings have important implications for recommendations to move in the direction of getting more second opinions, or using the new group-based diagnosis approaches.
