Candidate syndromic algorithms with the 10 highest PPVs and sensitivity ≥75%.

Sx n: The number of symptoms in the algorithm. Y/N: According to the algorithm, the symptom should (Y/yes) or should not (N/no) be present in the patient being referred. When used by HCWs in practice, algorithms containing more than one symptom should be read as indicating referral if patients present with any (as opposed to all) of the symptoms listed, i.e., symptom A and/or symptom B and/or symptom C and/or symptom D. Patients referred = the number of patients out of 462 who matched the algorithm being tested.
