Sutter Health adopts AI platform for symptom checking
Sacramento Business Journal

When a painful headache or a suspicious rash shows up, often the first step is consulting Google.

Those early stages of onset are some of the most critical in setting the stage for care, which is why Sutter Health says it’s adding a new artificial intelligence-driven symptom checker. The Sacramento-based health system is partnering with application developer Ada Health to build a symptom check platform into Sutter Health’s website by the end of February.

London-based Ada Health has been making global strides with its health app since its founding in 2011. The company boasts about 5 million users and has partnerships with Amazon, Germany’s largest health insurer and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
