11. Prognosis: Your Diagnosis
Prognosis: Your Diagnosis is an app from Medical Joyworks — produced out of Sri Lanka, where one of the goals of the developers of the app was to “make medicine fun”. Some of the developers themselves are medical professionals. The app is marketed as a clinical case simulation game for physicians, medical students, nurses, and paramedics. The app has been one of the most downloaded free medical apps recently released. We found the simulation cases fun to go through, however, the level of clinical content is more suited for medical students and paramedics, and is not advanced enough for residents and those in higher training. The developers of the application are promising more future cases, and we can only assume the degree of complexity will increase in the future. In the attached pictures we go through a simulation for the chief complaint – “Jaw Pain”. Our full review contains the whole simulation.
