Apps That Diagnose Based on Symptoms Usually Misdiagnose
Apps That Diagnose Based on Symptoms Usually Misdiagnosed. Apps and websites that diagnose based on symptoms are only right in 36 percent of cases.
This is evident from research by scientists at Edith Cowan University in Australia.
The researchers analyzed 36 internet tools that check for symptoms of the disease and, based on this, provide a possible diagnosis.
In 36 percent of the cases, the first result turned out to be correct and in 52 percent of the searches, one of the results in the top three was correct.
The advice on where and when people should report for further care was accurate in 49 percent of the cases.
