Symptom Checker


Symptom Checker

Drive traffic and enhance self-care—anytime, anywhere

Remember when you were young and the doctor would ask you to point to what hurt? He would poke and prod until they found the problem area, and from there, he’d determine how to alleviate the problem.

Well, that poking and prodding is kind of like what Symptom Checker, does.

An engaging, interactive tool, Symptom Checker allows your patients and consumers to:

  • Identify conditions associated with their symptoms,
  • understand the implications and potential self-care remedies, and
  • determine whether or not a trip to the doctor is in their best interest

Symptom CheckerAvailable in both English and Spanish with both adult and pediatric settings, Symptom Checker allows you to drive traffic to your site and help consumers determine appropriate care for common symptoms and minor injuries. The interactive body care guide lets them explore their symptoms, and it leads them through the decisions to make and steps to take to feel better fast. Incorporated into your website, it becomes a valuable tool for driving traffic, engagement and repeat visits. Offered on a mobile device, it becomes a helpful care guide that can be accessed anytime, anywhere.

The best part? As your patient is guided through Symptom Checker, they’ll see your brand, and links to your network, your physicians and your programs. When Symptom Checker helps them realize it’s time to see a doctor, your physician appointments are just a click away.
