Georges Bordage famously answered the key question in our field on why we missed the correct diagnosis:  “I just didn’t think of it”.  Creating a differential diagnosis may be one of the most effective interventions available for helping avoid diagnostic error.  Online proprietary decision-support tools such as Isabel, DXplain, and Visual Dx provide very sophisticated advice on formulating an appropriate differential diagnosis.

The low-tech, free approach is to consult a checklist that lists the chief diagnostic considerations for common symptoms.  Designed for use in primary care and family medicine, the checklist set created by Dr John Ely<http://www.improvediagnosis.org/page/Checklist> is available for access and download from the SIDM website, and the latest updates can now be accessed directly from your smart phone.  Here’s how:

         On your phone, navigate to http://pie.med.utoronto.ca/DC/

         Select "mobile version"

         When the checklists appear, there will be an option at the bottom of the screen to add this site to your phone's desktop.
         This will create a new icon that takes you to the lists directly.

And don’t forget to use it !
