GIDEON’s redesigned Infectious Diseases Diagnosis module has been launched (screenshot). There are many new features, including
- Dynamic diagnosis
- Usability improvements
Until now, GIDEON’s Diagnosis Compare function has ranked signs and symptoms which are most likely to impact the Differential Diagnosis list. Now, the top four clinical findings which are most likely to focus and shorten the list of possible diseases are displayed and dynamically updated as each new sign or symptom is entered. Clickable boxes which allow the user to enter a “yes”, “no” or “unknown”, appear and enlarge each time the mouse passes near a perspective finding.
The Diagnose button has been eliminated! Now, the differential diagnosis list updates automatically as you enter signs and symptoms. This feature demonstrates the effects of each new sign or symptom as it is entered.
The First case scenario list still appears below the diagnosis list.
The familiar buttons: Compare, Why Not, Open case, Save case, Remove All, Print, Email are all in the Diagnosis Results area.
Country and incubation period in symptom list
Country name and Incubation period have been appended to the Clinical Presentation list. Now, whenever you indicate a country name, or dates of exposure, the Differential diagnosis list instantly re-adjusts accordingly.
Windows, such as Suggestions and Clinical Summary can be minimized and hidden. For example to not see suggestions, click on the minimize button to the left title.
More mouse-overs have been added: Clickable boxes expand as you mouse over them, and display clear symbols to select “yes” or “no.”
You can now click on the signs and symptoms in the Clinical Summary. Clicking on Country will display “Worldwide”. Clicking again displays the country.
Diagnosis results can be sorted alphabetically or by probability easily by clicking the column title.
Changing vertical window size expands size of Clinical presentation and Diagnosis results sub-windows. This is a great feature for larger monitors.
Click “Original diagnosis” to use the older interface.
