Everyone would be more appreciative of better digital reports and insight delivery of their health status. As a lot of the medical terminology reads like ancient Greek to the majority on the planet, deciphering our medical and health info, and taking actionable steps from it, is frequently a difficult task.
Yet it doesn’t have to be this way as the emergence of AI is breaking down many of the obstacles previously thought impossible to overcome.
Medicus.ai is a Vienna-based AI startup whose platform turns health data from incomprehensible doctors’ double-speak into an interactive experience with its accessible and comprehensible explanations, health insights that are uniquely personalized, as well as its smart wellbeing coaching.
