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<> 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

         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 !
