Infermedica: tools for preliminary medical diagnosis based on artificial intelligence

Piotr Orzechowski, the founder of Infermedica, emphasises that with new investors and money for development, they will be able to further realise their vision and develop technology to increase the availability of primary medical care around the world.

- We are delighted that One Peak is joining the ranks of our investors and has chosen to lead the Series B. The team's experience in scaling B2B companies will certainly help our growth. We are also pleased that our existing investors have continued to support us and have decided to participate in this round. Infermedica's growth to date is thanks to, among other things, over 60 thousand hours of work by doctors who have created one of the most advanced knowledge bases on diseases, symptoms and risk factors

- says Piotr Orzechowski, founder and CEO of Infermedica.

Infermedica Symptomate: disease symptom analysis and online diagnosis

In addition to tools for initial medical diagnosis, Infermedica is creating a platform that will improve medical visits at all stages, including facilitating communication between doctors and patients and automating the creation of notes

In recent weeks, Infermedica has also made it possible to conduct an initial interview in the form of a voice conversation with a bot, thanks to a collaboration with Polish startup Talkie.ai. The AI-based bot uses Talkie.ai technology to recognise and interpret patient utterances. Infermedica's diagnostic engine, in turn, recognises and registers symptoms, formulating in real time the subsequent questions the bot asks in order to ultimately refer the patient to the right specialist or recommend other actions.

- The integration of Infermedica's diagnostic engine with the Talkie.ai voice assistant allows to significantly increase the efficiency of healthcare facilities. Artificial intelligence will help assess the patient's health condition and refer to the right specialist, reducing the waiting time to contact the clinic. Importantly, when talking to a bot, the patient can count on the same accuracy and reliability as when talking to a medical professional. Thanks to this, the whole process takes less time and costs less effort

- says Wojciech Przechodzeń, CTO, Talkie.ai.
