Reducing unnecessary urgent care visits
We know that access to verified medical information is key to improving how people across the world use medical services. Find out more about our physician-led database of medical concepts here.
It all starts with data. We want our database to resemble the knowledge and processes that physicians use daily. That is why our medical team built a complex network of interlinked medical concepts. This framework allows us to assess patient's health in a similar way to doctors, by simultaneously analyzing symptoms, conditions, and risk factors.
Expert medical knowledge is used by our diagnostic algorithms to process patients' data and draw conclusions on their health. It is also used as a part of the feedback loop to continuously improve our solutions over time. With care and precision, our team links medical content with the inference engine to guide millions of patients to the right level of care.
Our medical content has been growing over the years. We began with the most frequent everyday diseases like the common cold or migraine. Later on, we expanded our base with skin conditions, mental health issues, and surgical complications. Lately, we have focused on diagnosing injuries and, finally, pediatric conditions.
Each medical concept in our database is created in the same way: by using reliable sources of information, cooperation between physicians, thorough clinical validation, and a continuous feedback loop for improvement.
The medical content team consists of experts representing different medical specializations and levels of seniority. They work collaboratively, building our content with a comprehensive approach to patient health.
We currently use over 12,000 unique sources from over 770 domains, including well-established journals, guidelines, and publications from international health organizations (WHO, CDC) and numerous medical papers with high impact factors.
We established a content development process that prevents errors and maintains the highest quality of publication standards. This process includes eliciting expert knowledge, clinical validation, acceptance tests, technical reviews, and tests.
Content validation continues even after information is made available to our users. Our medical information is up-to-date with the latest research. Our physicians also share their experience of millions of real-life cases, which helps us to improve our engine’s accuracy.
Infermedica’s medical knowledge base is oriented toward both adult and pediatric users. It differentiates disease symptoms based on the patient's age. Healthcare organizations can use it to provide safe, precise, and personalized health recommendations to customers and their loved ones.
Access to medical guidance should be borderless. That is why we continuously work with physicians and communication experts from various continents who help us translate and adjust our medical knowledge base. We include local specifics and common names of medical terms. So far, we have 19 languages and the capability to add even more.
Clear communication between patients and physicians is key to a good therapeutic relationship. And this is no different for digital tools. That is why all medical terms are displayed with their common names, which are often more familiar to patients. The accuracy of these terms is ensured by our international group of medical translators and physicians.
