A recent study published in JAMA Internal Medicine compared the diagnostic performance of online symptom checkers against actual physicians to see which had better accuracy. Physicians were correct 72% of the time, beating the computer tools by a 2-to-1 margin. Consumer symptom checkers are not designed to be replacements or even cognitive assistants for physicians. So here is a more apt headline: “Study reveals physicians do poorly in solving relatively easy medical cases.”
"VisualDx is a useful and powerful tool - a must have software for all general practitioners. It gives me the information I need at the point of care to avoid misdiagnosis and avoid unnecessary tests and prescriptions. By simply entering the patients findings, I can quickly see what other symptoms to look for, what questions to ask, and then the software guides me to a differential diagnosis right in front of the patient."
