These close-to-market innovations support healthcare providers to defeat coronavirus and to save lives.

#1 Early Detection

COVID-19 TRIAGE - AI-powered diagnostic decision support system screening patients for Covid-19

AI-powered diagnostic decision support system screening patients for COVID-19 and assisting general practitioners to triage patients depending on their differential diagnoses
0,1% of all patient consultations are Covid-19 related, while millions were either afraid or unable to access needed care. Lives have been lost as a result.The project develops a digital triaging tool for general practices, which (1) screens reliably COVID-19 infected persons to reduce the risk of spreading the virus,(2) helps both COVID-19 and Non-COVID-19 patients to orient themselves whether self- or professional management is required, and (3)assists physicians to diagnose more accurately.
