AI4Rx, the AI-powered medical care platform, has unveiled MedBeat HealthConnect. This tool is a user-friendly AI-application to gather precise medical summaries of patients' symptoms and conditions for easier assessment by healthcare professionals.
This initiative aims to enhance communication and understanding between patients and their medical caregivers.
The app streamlines the diagnostic process by presenting pertinent questions, constructing comprehensive medical histories for the attending medical staff, and guiding patients toward the appropriate specialist and necessary lab investigations.
The development of this application involved extensive collaboration with medical experts to establish a robust database of symptoms and related ailments.
Talking about the need of such a platform, Dr. Monika Agarwal, cofounder and chief evangelist at AI4Rx, said, 'œA thorough diagnosis necessitates a comprehensive medical history. However, this typically demands significant time and effort from the medical practitioner in collecting relevant information. MedBeat HealthConnect simplifies this by offering a comprehensive summary to healthcare professionals through an innovative knowledge-based tool employing AI algorithms."
The application minimises the number of questions posed to patients while simultaneously narrowing down potential diagnoses in the background.
Addressing language barriers, the platform interacts with patients in their native language. Utilising this crucial data, the app compiles a summary of symptoms and medical background to present to healthcare providers, accompanied by appropriate medical terminology to expedite diagnosis.
Apart from generating medical summaries, the app recommends the suitable specialty of a doctor to consult and advises relevant laboratory tests. It also facilitates online appointment scheduling and home collection of lab samples, enhancing convenience for users.
The MedBeat HealthConnect app is accessible for download on both Play Store and App Store. A web-based version is also available on the MedBeat website, broadening its reach and accessibility to users.
Established in 2019 in New Delhi by Anuj Gupta and Dr. Monika Agrawal, AI4Rx has diligently established a strong foundation of symptoms and diseases through close collaboration with medical experts.
The healthcare industry has taken several steps to bridge the gap between patients and providers of medical care. Recently, in August, US-based Drs On Calls took a significant step towards connecting with Indian patients by introducing the 'International Second Opinion Service.'
This application facilitates the scheduling of virtual appointments, providing patients access to a diverse range of international specialists across various medical fields broadening the spectrum of expertise available to them.
