Introducing The Daily Drop-in: Our daily pick of the best tools and articles to help you care for yourself during lockdown.
Recent data suggests that the coronavirus pandemic has affected the numbers of people seeking care from health care providers for conditions other than COVID-19. Visits to both emergency rooms and primary care providers have fallen since March.
But as people put a hold on face-to-face care, there’s a clear opportunity for them to experience the benefits of Artificial Intelligence (AI) healthcare, particularly chatbots that provide personalised health and treatment information at no cost to the user.
AI chatbots are already a popular choice among people seeking care for conditions they may feel uncomfortable speaking to a doctor about, such as sexual health issues.
And as people increasingly turn to these services, Your.MD can offer a complete solution for people to maintain good sexual health as we embrace a new normal.
Your.MD offers a comprehensive 360-degree approach to sexual health in just 4 steps.
Firstly, we use AI to gain specific insights about the user’s concern. This allows us to provide personalised advice before sharing resources and further information on health concerns that may be causing the issue.
Once this information has been shared, we signpost users to partners who can help them take appropriate action.
The Your.MD Self-Assessment Tool provides an anonymous and ‘virtual’ private consultation in which you can discuss any symptoms you have or ask a question relating to your health concern with our chatbot.
The chatbot will flag any possible sexual health problem based on the information provided.
After using the Self-Assessment Tool, you can learn more about any possible conditions or health issues highlighted in your consultation using our medically-validated Health A-Z library.
You don’t have to perform a self-assessment before using the library, so you can go straight to the A-Z to look up symptoms of conditions you’re already aware of or concerned about.
You can also take one of several sexual health quizzes and tests available in our chatbot.
These can help you gain insight into topics such as what type of contraception to use, or your risk of contracting HIV.
Your.MD partners with a wide range of vetted healthcare providers to help you take action if any health concerns that require treatment or further advice are raised during your consultation.
For your safety, Your.MD is created by doctors and is registered as a Medical Device Class I with the Medical & Health Registration Authority.
Important: Our website provides useful information but is not a substitute for medical advice. You should always seek the advice of your doctor when making decisions about your health.
