The Impact

There is a serious shortage of good doctors in rural India, leading to lower quality care and higher costs since people have to travel long distances to get good care. VectorDoc is developing an Artifical Intelligence-based mobile phone app that is intended to be used by a low skill resource to both triage and return a preliminary diagnosis with high accuracy.

After gathering standard vital signs, the app guides the user through a brief series of questions that quickly return a small set of conditions and their probability. The goal of the app is to increase the reach of existing doctors in resource constrained rural and urban environments.
