Symptom Checker

Symptom Checkers

The Schmitt-Thompson content is used in two content sets designed to create symptom checkers for healthcare consumers seeking to triage their own symptoms.

Self Care Decisions’ symptom checker helps people determine how sick they are (or their children are) and whether or not they need to be seen by a provider. It is evidence-based and includes step-by-step care advice for symptom relief and management of minor illnesses and injuries at home. This trusted, self-service tool is available in a variety of formats: website offerings, within mobile applications or as an API (for organizations that wish to configure it themselves). Self Care Decisions’ web and mobile applications use the symptom checker as an engine – connecting users to the right level of care: your organization’s physicians, urgent care, ERs or telemedicine services. The content is available in English, Spanish, French and other languages.

Health Navigator After Care Instructions  and CarePoints are derived from the care advice in the Schmitt-Thompson telephone triage guidelines. Combined with Health Navigator’s Natural Language Processing and evidence-based Triage Symptom Checker and Diagnosis Symptom Checker engines, your software development team can build robust health bots and symptom checkers. This helps you help your patients get the right care, at the right place, at the right time. All content is delivered via a well-documented application programming interface (API; RESTful web service). The clinical vocabulary is currently available in eight different languages. Health Navigator was founded by STCC co-founder David Thompson, MD.
