Since 2012, we’ve strived to help health organizations and physicians deliver more efficient, safe, and reliable care to their patients, and empower patients to make better decisions regarding their symptoms and healthcare choices. Today, we’re delighted to announce that we’ve been recognized for Digital Health Innovation in the 2022 MedTech Breakthrough Awards!

Although the world needs innovations in healthcare, the organizations operating in this field have to overcome many challenges to grow. There are many reasons for that, health being a delicate notion, and healthcare systems being governed with many complicated regulations, to name two. At Infermedica, we look to overcome these challenges through delivering AI-powered solutions for symptom analysis and patient triage to support people working in healthcare, as well as the patients.

And so, we’re thrilled to be awarded “Best Healthcare Information Destination” in the sixth annual MedTech Breakthrough Awards Program.

“While people are increasingly seeking healthcare information online, we all know that the internet is filled with a myriad of health information that can be conflicting or inaccurate. The reality is that it’s easy for patients to come to the wrong conclusions when interpreting their own symptoms online. Through its ‘breakthrough’ symptom checking and triage capabilities, Infermedica is able to reduce the burden of patients trying to diagnose themselves online and enables them to be more active and better informed. We extend our congratulations to the Infermedica team on winning the ‘Best Healthcare Information Destination’ award for their Symptom Checker tool.”

MedTech Breakthrough is a prestigious independent market intelligence organization that recognizes the top companies, technologies, and products in the global health and medical technology market.

The mission of the MedTech Breakthrough Awards is to honor excellence and recognize the innovation, hard work and success in a range of health and medical technology categories, including Telehealth, Clinical Administration, Patient Engagement, Electronic Health Records (EHR), Virtual Care, Medical Devices, Medical Data and many more. This year’s program attracted more than 3,900 nominations from over 15 different countries throughout the world.

“I’d like to thank MedTech Breakthrough for recognizing how important our work is. Three out of four adults use the Internet to search for health information, and our report shows that about seven percent of Google searches are related to healthcare. Most of the time, they come to the wrong conclusion. This phenomenon is becoming such a big issue that there’s now a word to describe it – ‘cyberchondriac’. Because we want to take the guesswork out of finding the appropriate care, we constantly update our Medical Knowledge Base using the latest research and data, combined with our Specialist Recommender. Our technology is making healthcare more accessible, and guiding more patients to the care they need.”
