Self-Diagnostic Platform Uses AI To Provide Users With Reliable Medical Information
K Health strives to give users who are searching their symptoms online an accurate picture of their health and possible outcomes by comparing it with millions of real patients with similar conditions
Instead of stressing over impending death after searching online about a mild cough, a new self-diagnostic app called K Health wants to offer users relevant and accurate information based on data and health records of other people who suffered similar symptoms.
The Israel-based company uses machine learning to compare 1B+ medical charts, labs and doctors’ notes to show people people how medicine can work for free. It can also help users book appointments with physicians who already have HIPPA compliant access to the platform’s K report through partnerships with local providers, now available in New York.
Thanks to its implementation of AI, this self-diagnostic app is making waves in the industry. “With K, we use real data from millions of people so [users] discover and understand the medical outcomes of people like [them] and have informed conversations with providers about treatment options,” said Allon Bloch, the co-founder and CEO of K Health.”It’s about time people had unfettered access to trustworthy health information backed by real doctors as opposed to the generic and confusing information found online.”
