No other search engine or tool can dynamically generate and refine sophisticated differential diagnoses from any number of symptoms, signs, and labs, nor symptom duration, context, and presentation, much less location and medication side-effects. Yet the failure to do so is a recipe for premature closure.
Hand-Crafted by Doctors to Treat Individuals, Not Averages — Every feature in our algorithm is built by doctors. The algorithm is unique in mimicking the decision-making processes and cognitive strategies of top doctors. By contrast, predictive analytics tools use averages, which isn’t helpful for individual patients. Fever in Patient #1 could mean meningitis, but in Patient #2, the flu. There is no average. Our technology thinks like the clinician who must work with an individual patient and not an epidemiological average. It can interpret complex clinical data and give inferences found only among doctors with decades of experience. It also continuously learns from users, continually improving its own intelligence!
Real-Time Use by Clinicians. Our technology can be used in real-time clinical practice, on patients, by doctors and nurses – not to mention by patients facilitating triage from home. And our individual algorithms are all transparent, so that clinicians can meaningfully agree or disagree with their decisions and inferences – and train them to greater accuracy.
Real-Time Use by Students. Our technology can be used by medical, nursing, nurse practitioner, physician assistant, and pharmacy students for powerful medical education.

Doctors are just getting busier. Shortages of physicians around the world, combined with mandates to integrate insurance guidelines, perform EHR data entry, and take detailed notes, give doctors little time to hear a patient’s story, to ask all scientifically relevant questions, and to do comprehensive research on a patient’s condition — or conditions.
There are over 540 potential causes of chest pain alone, and it’s been estimated that specialists would need to read 160 hours a week to keep up with new developments. Yet humans can only hold in mind about 7 variables at a time. And as Nobelist Daniel Kahneman has shown, humans are terrible at probabilistic thinking.
Our mission is to help doctors to be the best diagnosticians and caregivers they can possibly be. That’s why we take a patient’s whole story even before the doctor arrives, generate comprehensive differential diagnoses, and automatically create notes in the normal course of the clinical workflow. We free up doctors’ time and cognitive energy for what they do best: listening, watching, touching, expressing compassion, reassuring, motivating — in short, healing. We make it all possible by allowing computers and algorithms to do what they do best, capturing all relevant data from a patient, whether in your exam room, waiting room, or before the patient even leaves home.
Physician Cognition’s technology empowers nurses, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants to practice at a much higher level — high enough to merit an expansion of their practice! — more productively, and with more job satisfaction.
With our algorithms:
Nurses can triage and even resolve most patients’ issues while the patient is in the waiting room, or even at home, according to the clinic’s own pre-installed clinical rules
Doctors – and independent NPs – can spend less time gathering and entering information – and more time with difficult cases. And they can see more patients per day
Hospitals Can Do More With Less Expensive Practitioners
Now, any non-MD provider can deliver sophisticated, evidence-based differential diagnoses and workup plans – at a fraction of the cost
Primary care physicians or nurse practitioners need only verify those recommendations
Hospitals can save around $300K/year for every 50 patients seen per day
Navigating the healthcare system can be a frustrating, frightening, and stressful experience.
