Your.MD is on a mission to improve the way we seek health-related, namely self-diagnosis, information online. If you’ve ever tried to google your symptoms, you know it’s not for the faint hearted. The U.K. health startup wants to change that via its ‘smart health assistant’ app for smartphones.
Powered by AI and machine learning, along with data it’s licensed from the National Health Service (NHS), Your.MD aims to more efficiently provide information about your medical conditions, possible causes and what steps you should take to remedy your illness, including, of course, when to see a doctor.
There are specialized offerings in similar lines from global players, such as Symptomate, webMD, and Google Doctor.
