Denver, CO (PRWEB) April 21, 2017
DiagnosisAI, LLC (http://www.DiagnosisAI.com) has released the “Alexa, Ask Doctor Dex” (DexMD™) skill for Amazon Alexa. The skill is the first ever voice-to-text medical reference of its kind and uses artificial intelligence to provide specific, personalized, and directed answers to medical questions with content curated by a team of over fifty physicians. Most people look up their symptoms through sites such as WebMD and end up self-diagnosing themselves incorrectly (i.e.-cancer). DiagnosisAI is providing a solution to prevent these scares and false alarms, while also providing first aid information.
“We are working to make online medical searches a relic of the past. We are pushing the boundaries of artificial intelligence, natural language processing, and voice-to-text to mold the future of how patients receive medical information. Our Alexa skill preview is just a first test in a series of steps DiagnosisAI is taking to spearhead the changing face of medicine in everything from medical reference to telemedicine,” states CEO and Co-Founder Dr. Omeed Saghafi.
DiagnosisAI is a healthcare technology company that focuses on using artificial intelligence to empower patients, making the complex medical system easier to understand while saving money and time in an overburdened and overpriced healthcare system. The Doctor Dex chatbot available on both Facebook Messenger and Amazon Alexa provides a glimpse of a much more complex and complete machine learning platform that DiagnosisAI is developing and testing for clinics and hospital systems. The clinic AI platform allows patients to receive rapid and accurate medical advice; it saves hospital systems money and improves clinical outcomes; it empowers patients with personalized updates, tracking, reminders, and answers to FAQs related to their surgeries, procedures, and diagnoses. This system prevents unnecessary, time-consuming, and expensive clinic or Emergency Department visits. The company has an undisclosed amount of seed funding at this time and is currently entertaining further investor interest.
“The DiagnosisAI team is particularly well-positioned to disrupt the management and delivery of medicine because our team is made up of medical doctors who are also engineers. As a result, there is a unique reciprocity of understanding among our team. We have experienced the current problems in healthcare firsthand, and we are aware of the available technologies that can remedy these problems. We are creating amazing products that will actually benefit patients and medical providers,” states CTO and Co-Founder Dr. Henry Duong.
The DiagnosisAI team developed an Alexa skill to learn more about consumer voice interaction. They combined some of their machine learning technology and original medical content to create a skill that can understand context and answer several thousand of the most commonly-asked medical questions, while also providing weekly CDC updates on topics like influenza and allergen trends. Currently, their skill is trending on “Health and Fitness” and “Movers and Shakers” and can be launched on any Amazon device using the phrase “Alexa, ask Doctor Dex.”
