#health Usa: $3 Trillion In 2014

Views: 289
Babylon started out as a telemedicine app,
. . . providing live chat and video consultations with medical professionals,
. . . saving Londoners (and the National Health Service)
. . . the cost and time to visit a doctor in person.

What the app does currently is what Babylon calls its
. . . “triage” function where patients use the app to get medical advice,
. . . a more sophisticated version of WebMD in a way,
. . . rather than call the NHS hotline for help.
AI chatbot has reportedly been downloaded more than a million times.
. . . In about 90 seconds it can offer a course of action,
. . . including scheduling a video call appointment with a flesh-and-blood doctor. Normally phone calls to the NHS hotline can take up to 15 minutes,
. . . costing the government about £15 (about $20).
. . . Medical consultations through Babylon can cost as little as £5 per month,
. . . based on a subscription.
Another interesting feature, is the ability to track things with the app like:
. . . . . . exercise,
. . . . . . eating habits, and
. . . . . . sleeping habits:

The new version of the app, expected out later this year,
. . . will be able to analyze a patient’s symptoms,
. . . against a database of diseases,
. . . as well as his or her medical history.
The AI chatbot can even make a diagnosis.
