GIDEON (Global Infectious Disease and Epidemiology Network) is the world's premier global Infectious Diseases database. This point-of-care clinical decision support system provides a current, evidence-based resource for the diagnosis, treatment and teaching in the fields of Tropical & Infectious Diseases, Epidemiology and Microbiology in all countries.
With GIDEON, medical professionals can diagnose and obtain treatment information for specific conditions, and obtain up-to-date global information about all diseases and disease outbreaks.
GIDEON consists of three modules: Infectious Diseases, Microbiology and Toxicology. The entire resource is updated weekly, based on all relevant citations appearing in MEDLINE, peer-review journals, publications of the World Health Organization, abstracts of major international meetings, user feedback and other relevant sources. GIDEON data sources adhere to the standards of evidence-based medicine.
GIDEON is used by emergency room physicians, infectious disease specialists, pediatricians, public health officials at hospitals, medical schools, public health departments and government agencies. The database helps clinicians overcome information overload and save time by providing quick diagnosis and access to a vast source of high-quality medical content. This is an ideal teaching tool for health care workers, students, residents and fellows.
