Ubie, Inc., a healthcare AI startup with the mission "To develop a healthcare guide for everyone," has launched in the United States an "AI-powered symptom checker" that allows users to enter symptoms and discover related diseases.
Ubie, founded in Japan in 2017 by a physician and an engineer, is now based in Tokyo and Singapore. Ubie's first product offering, the "AI-powered patient intake," is a service that streamlines the medical interview process for medical institutions. This service is based on a database of approximately 50,000 medical papers from around the world, compiled by more than 50 active physicians. The service, introduced at over 700 medical institutions worldwide, continues to improve the operational efficiency of medical institutions.
Ubie's second offering "AI-powered symptom checker" uses the same database as the AI-powered patient intake service and evolves daily to reflect clinical diagnosis data from physicians worldwide. Its AI selects the most appropriate questions from approximately 3,500 question data types. After users answer around 20 questions about their symptoms, they can discover related diseases and more detailed information. The system supports users' decision-making to access appropriate medical care, such as an optimal medical department to consult. The number of diseases in the service exceeds 1,100, covering a wide range of medical departments. The service is free, without the need for registration through the website.
