MedBeat HealthConnect, an application that uses AI to get an accurate medical summary of patients’ ailments and symptoms for diagnosis by medical professionals, announced the availability of an additional four languages for the patients to check their symptoms. Now patients will be able to use MedBeat HealthConnect app in six languages, Malayalam, Kannada, Tamil and Telegu as well as the original Hindi and English. This will further help bridge the communication gap between patients and doctors.
MedBeat HealthConnect narrows down probable diagnoses by intelligently asking relevant questionnaires in the native tongue of the user, creating medical history for the prescriber in English and directing and recommending the right specialist along with lab investigations to the patients.
“We launched MedBeat HealthConnect in September 2023 to an amazing response from patients and doctors. We realized that more patients were using Hindi for communication rather than English and there was a crying need for using other languages for symptom analysis. Today, with MedBeat HealthConnect in 6 languages, we are assisting doctors to optimize the time spent on each patient. Our app, through an innovative knowledge-based tool that uses AI algorithms helps ease this by providing a full summary to the medical professional in medical terms for correct diagnosis”, says Monika Agarwal, co-founder and chief evangelist, MedBeat HealthConnect.
“With the increased number of languages available in the MedBeat HealthConnect app, today we can connect with over 62% of the patients in India in their first language, no mean task in this English-focused digital marketplace that we are in”, she adds.
It solves the problem pertaining to language barriers and interacts with the patient in their mother tongue to access their symptoms. Utilizing their responses, it creates a summary of symptoms and medical history to be presented to the doctor and suggests the right specialist and relevant lab examinations. This summary contains doctor’s technical medical terminology, helping them in quick understanding and reaching the relevant diagnosis.
