    Excitement in the air! Caracal Diagnosis has just been released on the Apple Store and now is ranking in Top 25 Paid Medical Apps:

    Caracal Diagnosis is a breakthrough tool designed to help healthcare professionals determine diseases and medical conditions in a smart, fast & easy way. It works like a medical search engine in which users can simply input medical words—can be signs, symptoms or lab results—to be able to get the list of possible diseases (differential diagnosis) that might affect the patient.

    Caracal Diagnosis is smarter than any diagnosis app on the market. Its search engine displays a diseases list in the order based on mathematical equations and algorithms: disease commonness, importance (rare diseases but life-threatening would be ranked high), the degree of matching and importance of the combined entered symptoms, signs and lab results, and much more factors.

    • 1,600 diseases database, expected to be enriched in the near future
    • 2,200 signs, symptoms, and lab findings to search from
    • Clinical decision support system (CDSS)

    Thanks for sharing this Medical Diagnoses App. By chance have you also used Medscape? That is a very useful app and it is free as well.

    Skimonkey.

    Just a word of caution here - this is an app in v. 1 claims which appears to predict 'medical diagnoses' based apparently on entering a combination of symptoms, signs, medical tests, etc. - how this app was developed and tested for accuracy is uncertain to me; for a lay person using this program to attempt to predict whether they or their 'loved' ones may have a minor or a potential serious disease and then determine whether to see (or not to see) a 'real' physician is a warning. I'm a retired physician and there is no replacement for years of education (of a human mind) and then years of experience - be leery of these medical apps if you want to replace your 'human' doctor - this technology is certainly wonderful and useful in the proper context - just my 2 cents - Dave :) (M.D., retired Professor Emeritus, Wake Forest University).
