Our Mission

Physician Cognition’s mission is to reduce diagnostic error and support clinician’s and patient’s decision-making.


Clinicians are just getting busier. There are shortages of physicians and nurses around the world. Mandates to integrate insurance guidelines, perform EHR data entry, and take detailed notes. It all gives clinicians 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 - yes, including clinicians - have challenges with probabilistic thinking.

This is why our mission is to help clinicians be the best diagnosticians and caregivers they can possibly be. That’s why we can help them take a patient’s whole story even before the clinicians arrives, generate comprehensive differential diagnoses, and automatically create notes in the normal course of the clinical workflow.

We free up clinicians’ 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. The future of medicine is now in the palm of your hand with XebraPro.
