The Harvard compu-tests dealt with Appropriate diagnosis---
as in...with this set of symptoms,
what is going on - IE What illness or injury is
happening. Secondly, they looked for appropriate treatment...
IE: What do you next do about it.
Results aren't that much of a factor, as just by
going to a doctor (witch-type included:-), you'll
find a 90%+ favorable outcome result. Ah, the power of Belief!
PS: Care to share your test results?
