Its interesting to consider how different our world might be if the Apkon article hadn’t put a big stake in the heart of Weed’s decision-support tool.  It seems like interest in decision support for diagnosis took a major nose dive as a result of this publication, and ultimately the use of ‘problem-knowledge couplers’ never caught on.

Although they selected 24 different quality metrics in evaluating the impact of Weed’s PKC’s, none of these directly evaluated the most important outcome of interest, the accuracy of diagnosis.
