About this project

The problem we solve:
The economic costs of healthcare over- and under-utilization are enormous. Scarce and expensive resources are wasted when 73% of people unnecessarily seek medical services in the emergency department (ED). While consumer facing mobile health apps hold promise, a June 2015 Harvard study revealed the poor diagnostic and triage performance of current symptom checkers. There is an urgent need for an accurate digital triage tool that provides better value & improves the quality of emergency care.

About our solution:
Our physician designed mobile app rapidly delivers a single personalized Preliminary Diagnosis in lay terms to people concerned about their symptoms, instead of a confusing list of possibilities like all other symptom checkers. We then refer them to the most appropriate healthcare setting by GPS. We save ED costs for all healthcare stakeholders using proprietary clinically tested digital diagnostic and triage protocols.
Progress to date: We have just launched PreMedicus™ for Android mobile devices on Google Play.

How We Help Patients

PreMedicus™ is the personal “Symptom Checker” app for Android devices that quickly gives a preliminary diagnosis for worrisome symptoms. Every time you are sick enough to consider seeing a doctor soon or going to the Emergency Room, you can use our app. An experienced Critical Care doctor developed PreMedicus™ to be Fast, Private, & Accurate. Like a good doctor, our app carefully compares your personal health history with your answers to a few specific questions about how you are feeling. We then generate ONE personalized Preliminary Diagnosis using terms that are easy to understand. We use GPS to guide you to the nearest pharmacy, local doctor or hospital depending on the suspected diagnosis. Why buy the PreMedicus™ app? Other apps do not know anything about you, ask unnecessary questions, are slow, and bombard you with ads. At the end of it all, they are not very accurate anyway, leaving you unsure about what‘s wrong, and what you should do next.

How We Help Physicians

Whether PreMedicus™ sends a patient to their own physician, an urgent care facility or the ED, it is very helpful for the physician to receive an app generated summary of the patient's Personal Health Information and acute symptoms even before they arrive. The facility staff can more rapidly process these digitally preregistered & "pre-triaged" patients, and the physician can better anticipate the patients' needs, and prepare for them.

Challenge Mission

Mission: PreMedicus™ is a physician generated software app that will reduce the massive waste of unnecessary ED spending & long wait times using a patient centered self-diagnosis & triage tool.
Use of funds: We will use the grant to develop an iOS version of the app for iPhone users.
Intellectual Property Status: PreMedicus™ is a proprietary, trademarked and copyright protected software application.
FDA Status: PreMedicus™ is exempt from FDA regulation.
Personal Message: Imagine having the power to discover what may be wrong when you are sick, & getting the right advice about what to do next by simply answering a few questions on a mobile app. Imagine having your Personal Health Information stored securely on your phone to be shared only as you choose. PreMedicus™ has made this a reality! Please vote for PreMedicus™, the app that could save your life!
