Mediktor and Austin Regional Clinic From Texas USA Partner to Fight Covid-19
Mediktor and the Austin Regional Clinic (ARC) announce today a partnership to help in the fight against Covid-19. ARC will deploy Mediktor’s AI-powered coronavirus assessment tool on its website. The purpose of the tool is to provide clear guidance to patients on the likelihood their symptoms are indicative of coronavirus infection and then connect them with a provider in the most timely, efficient manner.
“We believe making the coronavirus assessment tool available to the communities we serve will improve access to information and care, and reduce the anxiety surrounding the spread of the virus,” said Manish Naik, MD, ARC’s Chief Medical Information Officer. “We investigated the range of AI-powered symptom checkers well before the coronavirus epidemic began,” continued Dr. Naik, “and were impressed by Mediktor’s technology, commitment to clinical validation and presence in the Epic App Orchard.”
Mediktor’s founder Christian Pascual added, “Over the past years, ARC built a digital platform that was ready to go when the coronavirus crisis struck. Many others are now scrambling to put telemedicine in place. We are pleased to be working with such a proactive, patient-driven organization. They are setting the standard for the future of American healthcare.”
