Frequently asked questions
The global healthcare sector is overburdened for several reasons. In many countries, the population is aging, and requires more medical care. In many places, there is an overall shortage of physicians. In the Netherlands, the GP is the “gatekeeper” for almost all medical care, expanding the demand for their services. Finally, people often seek acute health care when their GP is unavailable, sometimes in non-urgent cases. Medvice seeks to reduce this burden in two ways:
- By providing patients with the accurate, personalized, always-available medical information they need, calming their concerns and ensuring that acute healthcare is only sought out when it is medically necessary
- By supporting physicians, clinics, and urgent care centers with improved patient flow and efficiency. The Medvice application improves data collection and management, saving staff time, while the Medvice.Ai helps screen for red flag symptoms and reach a differential diagnosis more quickly
Medical reasoning is necessary in order to find the proper diagnosis or act out a medical decision. The basis for medical reasoning is mostly of associative nature, where risk-, lifestyle- and epidemiological factors play an important role. In practice, patients rarely present themselves with the full scale of classical symptoms (“textbook symptoms”), and may present with atypical symptoms. In many cases, medical history or symptom information is simply incomplete. Physicians are then at risk of basing their diagnosis and treatment plans on incomplete or unclear data. Using Machine Learning algorithms trained by real patient data, Medvice.Ai is able to predict a list of possible diagnoses (“differential diagnosis”) based on said incomplete information or an atypical combination of symptoms. In the long run, using Machine Learning technology can function as a proper screening tool to pick up clinical associations missed by the GP.
Current existing triage protocols, like the NTS (Dutch) or MTS (UK) presently give an indication about the level of urgency of a certain physical problem. Unfortunately, these standards only prioritize on the basis of urgency, but do not gather any other necessary medical information which could later be useful for the consulting physician. Medvice not only integrates these validated triage standards, but also digitally and interactively initiates the general part of the medical history taking process. This saves time for the patient, since they can complete the information while they are waiting, and saves time for physicians and clinical staff, since they don’t need to spend crucial time with the patient simply gathering and recording this data.
Machine-learning systems rely on “training data” in order to increase their accuracy. In some sectors, such as the automotive sector, relevant datasets are readily available as they are being generated by automotive companies themselves. However, almost every other sector, and particularly the healthcare sector, relies on either third party, unclean and free text data, or “text-book” dataset (also called synthetic data). Most companies therefore value complete, structured, standardized and clean datasets, yet know these dataset are not easy or cheap to obtain. With Medvice, we pioneer and engineer our medical history taking software (MIA) so that, with consent of the patient, we can securely, pseudonymously, store standardized, structured, labeled, and clean datasets for training of the Medvice.AI and also other analytic purposes. There is no limit in this form of data gathering, and the increase rate of data acquisition during the upscaling stage has the potential to better the world.
As a medical e-consultation app, Medvice offers services parallel to none. We are the only suite of services designed to meet the needs of patients, doctors, and clinics with our simple, intuitive data gathering, and comprehensive set of applications. Our machine learning algorithm improves constantly, enriched by anonymous, voluntary sharing from our patients and validation from our physicians. We use next-generation technology to keep medical data accessible, controlled, and secure. Being founded by conscientious doctors, we adhere to the strictest medical standards. Medvice is uniquely designed to relieve the strain on our healthcare systems by:
- Providing patients with the accurate, affordable medical information they need to seek medical care only when necessary, and enjoy peace of mind about their healthcare decisions
- Streamlining information gathering for physicians and assisting them in more quickly arriving at a diagnosis and treatment options
- Reducing waiting times and overburdening in clinics and urgent care centers by expediting patient flow and improving data collection.
As a patient, you will be asked to share data after you have filled out the details of your medical complaint using the Medvice Interactive Anamnesis, or MIA. The data is only shared after informed consent. This data entails purely medical, yet minimal personal information. For example, no names or addresses are included. As it is nearly impossible to ensure 100% real anonymous data, Medvice follows the latest GDPR guidelines and works with pseudonymous data. This means that data can be amended in such a way that no individuals can be identified from those data (whether directly or indirectly) without a "key" that allows the data to be re-identified. A good example of pseudonymous data is coded data sets used in clinical trials, and with Medvice, pseudonymous data is coded medical data sets obtained from the patient using the MIA app. Pseudonymous data are still treated as personal data because they enable the identification of individuals (albeit via a key). However, provided that the "key" that enables re identification of individuals is kept separate and secure, the risks associated with pseudonymous data are likely to be lower, and so the levels of protection required for those data are likely to be lower. Pseudonymisation of data provides advantages. It can allow organisations to satisfy their obligations of "privacy by design" and "privacy by default" and it may be used to justify processing that would otherwise be deemed "incompatible" with the purposes for which the data were originally collected. In addition, the GDPR explicitly encourages organisations to consider pseudonymisation as a security measure.
