Diagnosaurus DDx

Review Author: Julia_Sollenberger@URMC.Rochester.edu
Platform: iOS
App or Mobile Website: App (link to App Store)
Does it require WiFi to work? No
Category: Medical
Price: $0.99
Special Instructions:
Tasks or Searches Tested: Looked up heart (organ systems), diabetes mellitus (disease), pain or swelling (symptoms).
Design: Simple, uncomplicated. Easy to use with single search box.
Functionality: Helps medical professional start the process of forming a differential diagnosis. Use search box to find entries in four different indexes - all entries, organ systems, symptoms, or diseases - over 1,000 entries. Search Diseases - get Etiology, related diagnoses. Search Symptoms - get diagnoses and related diagnoses. Organ System - cannot search; just a list with diseases within that organ system.
Content: Basic information. No real symptom list for each disease. Seems there should be more, but it does not provide much additional information - just links the indexes.
Other Comments: Positive comments from residents, med students on app store and elsewhere. Seems that it is a good starting point for them and brings up possibilities they would not have thought of.
