Frequently Asked Questions

We aim to make your work as simple and accessible as possible. Find answers to common questions about our platform below.

Can I use GIDEON when I am visiting patients away from the computer?

GIDEON works on all devices, anywhere where there is an Internet connection.

Are diagnosis probabilities affected by seasons?

In most cases, rates by season will change the ranking of some diseases in the Diagnose module. Seasonal rates will change continually, depending on individual outbreaks, location by hemisphere, and distance from the Equator. At most, these changes will affect only the ranking of relevant diseases.

Are probabilities given by GIDEON tested for accuracy?

Links to published studies follow. Note that studies largely assessed the ranking of diseases; ie, did the disease listed first reflect the true diagnosis? GIDEON does not make such a claim. In fact, the disease listed first only carries a higher statistical probability than other diseases on the list.

Is GIDEON an evidence-based medicine (EBM) database?

Yes, all sources are peer-reviewed and backed by scientific evidence – most are considered the premier scientific sources. Uncontrolled, or poorly-analyzed studies will not appear in these publications. This also holds for websites used in maintaining GIDEON. Virtually all are governmental sites. Reputable computer lists in the field are used, in a manner that fits the standards of evidence-based medicine.

For example, although ProMED is considered THE site for new and ongoing outbreaks, many of its own sources consist of newspapers and news agencies. Therefore we cite ProMED in circumstances where this is the only information source for a given outbreak (often in underdeveloped and remote; new information sources which become available will also be included.
In-text references in GIDEON further support GIDEON as an Evidence-Based Medicine database by allowing the user to view all source information, and to reach their own conclusions regarding the credibility of those sources if needed.
