New App Provides Alternative To Googling Your Symptoms

New App Provides Alternative To Googling Your Symptoms

This app should eliminate many a sleepless night. 

Every year, Google and other search engines see billions of symptom-related queries. However, search engines don't "think" like doctors; they don't understand the context and situation of the patient's health.

Ada, the world’s leading personal health companion app, now available for download for iOS and Android phones in the U.S., and free to use from anywhere in the world.

Ada is the first and only AI-powered health platform created by a team of doctors, scientists, and entrepreneurs, which is using artificial intelligence and machine learning to learn about your symptoms and health conditions, so it can help you and your doctor better manage your overall health. It brings high-quality, personalized, interactive, and actionable health guidance to millions worldwide, empowering patients to proactively manage their unique healthcare journey.  It is the fastest growing medical app in Europe in 2017 and currently the #1 medical app in over 130 countries.

Ada is a more informed alternative to WebMD, and can quickly help assess pressing physical and mental health concerns. Likewise, it’s not easy for people or Google to filter out any non-relevant, non-credible medical information online. AI assistants like Ada have the potential to solve some of these issues by providing a step-by-step approach for users, and offering relevant medical information that is validated against medical sources and real-world cases.

Supporting millions of users worldwide, a medical assessment is completed on Ada on average every 5 seconds. On average, over 10,000 assessments are completed by Ada's users each day.


How Ada Works:

1. Ada uses AI and machine learning to help people to understand and manage their health.

2. Enter almost any symptom, from the common cold to a rare disease, by answering simple, personalized questions about your physical or mental health. The app works with a conversational interface so you can have a conversation with it just like you would have with a trusted doctor.

3. Ada draws from a broad medical knowledge base covering over 1500 conditions, and thousands of findings and real-world cases. Machine learning enables Ada to become smarter the more people use it and to consider the user's medical history, along with data from a broader range of sensors, devices and other sources, when making a health assessment.

4. Builds and stores an overview of users’ health situation (i.e. allergies, medications, symptoms) – which remains secure, up to date, and accessible from their pocket. NOTE: The assessment report provided by Ada is not a medical diagnosis.

5. In every assessment, Ada takes all of a patient's information into consideration, including past medical history, symptoms, risk factors and more. Ada continues to grow more intelligent over time. After you complete a quick personalized assessment, Ada provides possible conditions and allows you to download your personal assessment into a PDF and share with your doctor at your discretion.

6. Immediately sends user an assessment report through the app.

7. Physicians can access a patient’s history on Ada to get a long-term picture of their health.

8. Integrated health reports save doctors a significant amount of time, enabling them to spend more time on patient care, prevention and outcomes.
