New Delhi: AI4Rx launches MedBeat HealthConnect Plus app targeted at medical institutions and doctors with independent practice, the app uses AI to not just get an accurate medical summary of patients’ ailments and symptoms, but also offers differential diagnoses.
Acting as a digital avatar of the junior doctor, the app will help independent physicians and small clinics manage their consultation time better. The app will assist medical professionals in acquiring and retaining patients, through an integrated offering that helps in decision-making with accurate diagnosis.
The patient app will ensure that the communication issues due to language barriers are taken care of since the app asks questions about patients’ symptoms in their own language. Currently available in Hindi and English, the app asks questions in these languages but creates a summary in medical terminology. The assistant app will then share the summary with the doctor with differential diagnoses for the doctor’s consumption. The doctor can physically examine the patient clinically and reach a formal diagnosis.
The app will help in reducing around 14-20 per cent of consultation time and in addition, will help in analysing the symptoms better and reaching a quicker and more accurate diagnosis. The accuracy rate of the app in trials is around 95 per cent.
“Today, medical practice is plagued with the issues related with time management. For clinics or independent physicians, the pressure of a full OPD with a large number of patients waiting causes massive stress,” said Dr Monika Agarwal, Co-Founder and Chief Evangelist, AI4Rx.
