SAMI-Aid, a patient-focused telemedicine platform and healthcare concierge company, has launched its new artificial intelligence physician matching tool. SAMI-Aid members can be matched with a physician on the platform’s extensive database of medical professionals based on physician specialty, patient symptoms, location, and soon price.
“Often when someone is experiencing symptoms or looking for a medical professional, they’re not sure where to start. We are proud to launch our intelligent physician matching tool to help patients take control of their healthcare outcomes,” said John Bijan Farhangui, SAMI-Aid Founder and CEO.
The intelligent physician matching tool pairs patients with medical professionals using a variety of inputs. For example, patients can search the database by selecting physical symptoms they may be experiencing such as coughing or congestion. Additionally, patients can search using behavioral health symptoms such as depression or anxiety. The tool’s algorithm will use the patient’s current location to match the patient with a board-certified physician or licensed practitioner. In the future, SAMI-Aid plans to update the intelligent physician matching tool so that patients will be able to also narrow their search results based on pricing for a first-time office visit.
“The intelligent physician matching tool is just the start of many planned enhancements to our suite of medical concierge services,” added Farhangui. “Our ultimate goal is to empower patients to get the healthcare they need no matter their background, income, or insurance.
SAMI-Aid offers on-demand access to medical professionals of a variety of specialties, including mental and behavioral health. SAMI-Aid’s health professionals are vetted, licensed, and certified in various areas of health expertise. SAMI-Aid also recently launched its new at-home COVID-19 testing program where patients can confirm their COVID-19 status from the safety and convenience of their own home.
