Infermedica, the Poland-founded health tech startup that offers an AI-driven platform for preliminary diagnosis and triage.
Symptom Checker is a tool to assist patients in preliminary diagnosis. Using artificial intelligence to check symptoms, it then guides patients to the appropriate medical services.
Infermedica tackles the problem of inappropriate use of medical services and misdiagnosis, providing insurance companies, hospitals, and health systems with a set of advanced preliminary diagnosis and triage tools. They provide four different products: Symptom Checker, Call Center Triage, Emergency Room Triage, and Infermedica API.
The company uses artificial intelligence and machine learning to assess symptoms and find patterns in data. Thanks to algorithms, Infermedica gets smarter over time. Additionally, the team of physicians verifies every piece of information that is added to the medical database to ensure that patients get safe and reliable recommendations. To date, physicians involved in the project have spent over 30,000 hours on reviews.
Infermedica helps insurance, healthcare and pharmaceutical companies increase efficiency, improve patient flow, and reduce costs.
