All of that allows companies to stand out in the highly demanding market of healthcare. Infermedica’s products are easy to customize, integrate, scalable and available in more than 13 languages.

Infermedica’s diagnosis engine is a powerful solution that uses artificial intelligence to find correct and cost-efficient care for the patients served. The AI suggests the most suitable and cost-efficient action to take such as visiting or calling a doctor, self-care treatment or going to an Emergency Department in case of highly severe symptoms. Infermedica assists patients in making the best decisions regarding their symptoms and allows healthcare companies to save money by making sure that patients use the proper services to treat their health issues.

How it works

  • Collect symptoms: Infermedica Triage resembles a checkup lead by a doctor. First, the patient describes his symptoms, and the operator writes them down with the use of our app.
  • Ask questions: The operator starts asking the questions which appear on the screen. From this point on, the interview is led by the AI.
  • Get triage results finally, the patient gets accurate and reliable triage information and knows exactly if there is a need of a prompt medical checkup.

The Call Center Triage platform doesn’t require any medical training or education. It can be used by anyone, not only by doctors and nurses. AI engine support employees at every stage of the triage process and provide patients with safe and reliable recommendations.

Users rate the application an average of 4.65 in a 5-point scale (93%).
