Sonoa Healthcare’s® research and development team has recently succeeded in building a flexible expert system that is capable of providing consumer healthcare information that is “personalized for each individual” by emulating the intelligent decision making capability of human healthcare experts.
The system known as OnlineMD® is designed to provide personalized, intelligent and interactive information to everyday healthcare consumers.
Our objective is to meet the rapidly growing worldwide demand to have complex medical science demystified and presented in a “personalized for each individual” format.
Research demonstrates that consumers want to know (in consultation with their physicians and families) which of all the available healthcare options and recommendations are more suited to them as individuals, based on their own personal physiology, history and life circumstances. They want to know what the potential benefits, harms and costs of these options and recommendations mean to them personally, not generically.
This depth of detail can only be supplied by physicians in person or by consumers being assisted with personalized, accurate, easy to use and easy to understand healthcare information systems.
Physicians themselves want patients to be more involved in their own healthcare outcomes but more and more physicians say they no longer have the time to explain personalized healthcare information. Many medical organizations throughout the developed world including the US Surgeon General frequently call for better information to be provided to everyday healthcare consumers.
Consumers, who have access to personalized, easy to use and easy to understand information on healthcare, have improved levels of health, have better healthcare outcomes and importantly, consume significantly less healthcare resources.
