Infermedica tackles the problem of unnecessary medical care and waste, providing insurance companies, hospitals, and health systems with a set of advanced preliminary diagnosis and triage tools.
Research from the Institute of Medicine has shown that “unnecessary services” contribute $210 billion in wasteful spending to the U.S. healthcare system each year. Infermedica is attempting to create a new and better way for healthcare companies to manage patient flow through technology.
Founded in 2012 by a team of engineers, data scientists, and physicians, Infermedica develops its own AI engine to collect intake, check symptoms, and guide patients to the right care. The technology can also detect emergencies and support healthcare professionals by giving them early access to health information and recommendations.
“The broader goal is to improve customers’ performance, increase healthcare accessibility, and reduce costs. To date, our tools have been used by over 3.5 million users worldwide, and we have signed partnerships with over 30 leading insurance and healthcare companies, including Allianz Partners, Taipei Medical University Hospital, and Everyday Health,” says Piotr Orzechowski, Infermedica’s CEO.
Infermedica’s products include Symptom Checker, Call Center Triage, and Medical API.
