Good medical history takes time and is an art. It forms the basis of any exam and is the crux of diagnosis.
Since the majority of our population uses cell phones, a Medical History app is designed to take a good history before the patient visits the doctor. Key words, suggested questions and inputs given by clinicians formulate the correct questionnaire for specific ailments.
Patients can upload photos of lesions, photos of reports, and pre-send their history to the doctor for suggestions on tests, or changes in diet or medication to make before the visit.
Doctors can plan beforehand what needs to be done next for the patient. Patients who need to be treated immediately can be triaged beforehand, and patients who might need to be quarantined, or who have special needs, could be identified before entering the doctor's office. The app also saves time in taking the history and typing it up, and most importantly, saves time when a life has to be saved.
