The Symptom assessment is a digital aid to receive reliable information about a health complaint, wherever and whenever you wish to have it. The Symptom assessment is not intended to establish a diagnosis, but to give you information about possible causes of your complaint.
After filling in the questionnaire about your complaint, a list with possible causes will be displayed to you. For each cause you will see information in the form of a description, frequent symptoms, the frequency in the population of this cause, advice whether you should visit the GP, an impression of the urgency and / or what measures you could take yourself.
60+ medical experts
The assessment of your complaint by our/the Ada Symptom assessment is based on studies, guidelines, medical texts, the opinion of experts, while keeping into account your personal information (e.g. your age and gender) and the information you stored in your medical profile. The Symptom assessment is continually tested, kept up-to-date and improved by a team of 60+ medical experts.
Artificial intelligence (AI) helps the Symptom assessment to ask ‘smart’ questions, the way a GP does. It starts with a number of basic questions about your health. Based on your answers, you will receive a number of follow-up questions. All your answers are used to draw up a list of possible causes.
Medical knowledge base
For the assessment of your complaint, the Symptom assessment uses a medical knowledge base with over 10,000 symptoms and characteristics and over 120 risk factors. It also calculates to what extent your complaint is linked to over 3,600 conditions in its database. The combination of your answers and the information from the knowledge base result in a list of possible causes.
The result of the Symptom assessment is stored in a complaint report. This complaint report may be useful in preparing the consultation. If it is necessary to speak to the GP, this complaint report – subject to your consent – will be sent to the GP before your appointment, to enable the GP to properly prepare for your conversation. The groundwork has already been done, so the GP will have more time and attention for you during the consultation.
