Yesterday, OpenWT participated to the IBM Press Day in Rüschlikon, where IBM Research and Medgate presented their AI-based decision support system for patients.
The goal of this research project is to optimize and automate medical core processes by guiding each patient to the right care provider at the right time. To do so, the patient will be invited to provide their current symptom(s) and go through a short interaction with a chatbot. Then the system will deliver a recommendation such as “Teleconsultation” or “Contact your GP” for instance. The project, currently in test phase, will be launched in 2019 and we are proud to be part of this adventure!
Indeed, Open Web Technology has been a key strategy and technology partner for Medgate since 2017. Aside from developing the Medgate App, we have been supporting Medgate in:
- Managing the AI project and coordinating the medical, research and operations teams
- Developing the middleware that manages the conversation and recommendations
- Integrating the user experience within the Medgate App
Stay tuned and subscribe to our newsletter! We will keep you posted about the future of this game-changing project.
