DizzyGuide allows you to recognize and schedule the most effective patient journey for each patient individually before they set foot into your clinic.
DizzyGuide provides symptom clusters related to dizziness and instability problems. The symptom clusters intend to be recommendations for potential diagnoses. It is most effective to confirm or exclude these diagnoses first.
A validated algorithm looks at patient input from an online questionnaire. That results in the symptom clusters. Those are used to show the clinic’s preference about what examinations and/or specialization are best suited for the patient during the first visit.
DizzyGuide aims to be used in a vestibular clinic of any size and in networks of independently working healthcare professionals.
DizzyGuide is based on the understanding of your clinical work processes and it is equipped to adapt to your busy workday. Below you see one possible DizzyGuide workflow illustrated.
A patient is referred or contacts the clinic
The patient is invited to complete DizzyGuide’s online balance questionnaire
3. Balance questionnaire
The patient uses around 20 minutes to answer all questions and submits the answers
A clinician uses the detailed report to review the symptom clusters provided by DizzyGuide’s algorithm
DizzyGuide shows a scheduler what appointments must be scheduled. Those are based on the approved symptom clusters and local preferences
The patient visits the clinic where
DizzyGuide gives us an edge and a new level of confidence. After two weeks we could not imagine having to work without it.

The way vestibular healthcare is organized varies across the globe. However, the dizziness experienced by patients does not.
We believe that using a standardized set of questions as input for the algorithm and a common set of symptom clusters as output is an ideal starting point for organizing vestibular healthcare.
How that translates into scheduling instructions is done with full respect for the professional differences. DizzyGuide can be configured with recognition for which professionals work in a clinic. It can be configured with consideration for which test equipment is available. It can be configured so that instructions include the appropriate time that you typically reserve for patients.
The DizzyGuide algorithm points towards one or multiple of the below symptom clusters and during triaging you can add additional symptom cluster to the approval.
Knowledge and years of experience of leading dizziness specialists in the areas of otology, neurology, psychiatry, and audiology form DizzyGuide’s foundation. The original questionnaire and algorithm were developed at Mayo Clinic. A 4-year process has led to a refined questionnaire and a validated algorithm.
While vestibular knowledge continuously improves, our advisory board optimizes the balance questionnaire and the output of the algorithm.
