Instruments for your GP

Medical professionals can get a “simultaneous consult” about their patient’s diagnosis using SimulConsult’s diagnostic decision support software in three ways.

Individual medical professionals can register for a free Classic Phenome version. Using this version, they can enter patient findings into the software to get an initial differential diagnosis and suggestions about other useful findings, including tests. They can also send the Patient Summary output to radiology and genomic labs to improve communication, in lieu of a detailed note.

For all the information, see SimulConsult.
