Healthcare has been slow to operationalize technological innovation. How we engage with providers today is not much different than decades ago. This has led to wasteful inefficiencies, persistent poor health outcomes, and out-of-control costs. AdviNow Medical is changing this paradigm. Using artificial intelligence and augmented reality to power a patient-friendly medical station, we have optimized the healthcare encounter. The result is a reduction in overhead; greater patient throughput; billing timeliness and efficiency; and faster value-based, incentivized data collection.
Sitting in front of a computer screen and a rack of simple-to-use, FDA-approved medical devices, patients are guided through self-administered steps to collect data such as weight, temperature, and blood pressure; as well as ear, nose, and throat images; and chest, lung, and abdomen sounds. Questions are asked until the information necessary for diagnostic impression is collected. The total process takes less than 15 minutes. A patient work-up is sent to the healthcare provider with a breakdown of predicted illnesses and treatment options. The provider engages with the patient to confirm the AI-collected information, verify the diagnosis, and confirm or modify the treatment plan formulated by the system.
Every detail of the encounter is automatically charted and scribed into the electronic medical record, saving valuable time and enhancing the engagement between the provider and patient. The AI also electronically sends the prescription and/or test orders to the appropriate healthcare partner (e.g. imaging centers or pharmacies) and completes the billing process.
