This service is based on a database of approximately 50,000 medical papers from around the world, compiled by more than 50 active physicians. The service, introduced at over 700 medical institutions worldwide, continues to improve the operational efficiency of medical institutions.
Ubie’s second offering “AI-powered symptom checker” uses the same database as the AI-powered patient intake service and evolves daily to reflect clinical diagnosis data from physicians worldwide.
