A doctor in Texas have created an app that he claims will be helping its users as they will be there on self diagnosing the symptoms of sickness, and will therefore reducing the unnecessary visits that a patient has to make to clinics, it will be further enhancing the automation in healthcare. Houston-based Tarec Fahl moved into technology to create an “accurate” symptom checker that is gaining its importance nation wide in US.
Although people today also can check their health related issues and diagnose any sickness by going through its symptoms as having Internet always around , but the main problem arises when either the details are too complex or they have inaccurate data fed on the sites. To remove this irrationality this self diagnosing app is designed. For Example, When Diane Beasley’s youngest child started coughing, she picked up her phone. But not to call her doctor. To answer a series of questions on an app called DocResponse.”So it has finally saved three or four days of this poor kid suffering for nothing,” she said.
Basically this app does not only want to provide online support but also to give first aid to the needy patients there on. This idea bounced to Dr. Fahl when they noticed that people were searching internet more often before heading to doctors or clinics but getting wrongly guided most of the time. This technology enabled aid will be prioritized and will prove to be a boon in the field of humanity and medical all together.
Fahl added to his statement that “ Are we 100 per cent accurate? No. Nor are physicians, But we will be offering useful and accurate information for the users, that would be given by trained and special physicians.”
