New Feature Categorizes Differential Results for a Faster Diagnosis
The six tabs at the top of the differential will categorize results for quick diagnosis: Consider 1st, Consider 2nd, Emergencies, Infectious, Drug Induced, and View All.
A color bar at the top of each diagnosis indicates the number of matching findings. For instance, in the photo below, the first two diagnosis match 6/6 findings while the highlighted diagnosis, Herpex simplex virus, matches 5/6. Hovering over a diagnosis will reveal which findings do not match.
The new display aims to help clinicians quickly identify possibilities for the most accurate diagnosis at the point of care.
