Point of Care

A Tool Of Choice For 27 Years

It’s irreplaceable. I haven’t seen anything else that compares to GIDEON.

The Mount Sinai Health System is an integrated health care system providing exceptional medical care to our local and global communities.

Dr. Jeffrey Gumprecht has worked in the field of infectious diseases for more than 30 years – in private practice, as a consultant, and most recently at Mt. Sinai Hospital in New York City, as an associate clinical professor in Clinical Informatics and Infectious Diseases.

He has been using GIDEON since its inception in 1993. “It’s irreplaceable. I haven’t seen anything else that compares to GIDEON,” he says.

Even though he has full access to the library at New York University, he prefers GIDEON’s platform because it enables him to get a full-text description of any infectious disease. Dr. Gumprecht says he particularly loves GIDEON’s straightforward user interface.

He uses the interactive tool to input details when a patient has traveled to a specific country when they returned, their symptoms, and the organ systems involved, and it generates a Differential Diagnosis.

It also enables him to share information with other infectious disease specialists. He says it’s an amazingly valuable source of information, helping users to quickly reach a diagnosis.
Dr. Gumprecht likes the way GIDEON presents the information on each country and includes even the most
unusual infections.

All the information is in one place, so there’s no need to go to multiple review articles or separate
websites.

It has been especially useful for the Infectious Disease Fellows at Mt. Sinai Hospital where he works – a tool that is interactive and not just passive reading.
