Mediktor: transforming healthcare for everyone
Mediktor, a digital health startup is the first scientifically validated health checker based on artificial intelligence (AI). Mediktor combines artificial intelligence, natural language recognition technologies and patient data to detect symptoms and offer a listing of possible conditions, recommendations and even connecting with medical professionals within a health insurance network. The platform learns from every interaction, developing an advanced intuition. Mediktor has already performed 1.5 million symptom evaluations in 201 countries globally developing an intuition comparable to a full life experience of 10 physicians. The platform, which has undergone a clinical study with 1,015 patients achieving a success rate of 91.3%, is being marketed to US based health insurance companies to better manage and improve accessibility to their membership base. Mediktor’s goal is to provide health insurance companies with a tool to help manage their member base.
Thanks to artificial intelligence (AI) and natural language recognition technologies, the pre-diagnosis tool identifies the patient’s symptoms in real-time. As with a physician, Mediktor asks a series of simple questions until reaching a list of possible pre-diagnoses. The technology also offers recommendations on next steps according to the medical needs of each patient.
In summary, Mediktor technology rests on three pillars:
- Artificial intelligence
- Natural language recognition: it does not require the patient to use medical language to perform the consultation
- Machine Learning: it learns from every interaction with patients, improving its intuition on a case by case basis.
From symptoms to action in less than 5 minutes
Mediktor pre-diagnosis tool identifies a patient’s symptoms through an easy-to-use step-by-step process. It is the most advanced and accurate expert system for pre-diagnoses, triage and decision-making support. Mediktor is the first artificial intelligent system clinically validated that is transforming healthcare for everyone. The Mediktor technology makes it possible to reduce access barriers to healthcare:
- Patients can make better decisions from the first symptoms
- The healthcare system can organize its demand and optimize resources to offer a better medical coverage.
