What sets Wtswrng apart from other symptom checkers?
Wtswrng is a purely graphic cutting-edge app designed as a symptom checker and triage tool, as it employs the universal language of images. It is the only tool of its kind in the world designed using the universal language of culturally and religiously sensitive imagery, making it user-friendly and comprehensible for all types of users (patients). We understand what you may be going through: when faced with one or multiple symptoms and given the various options presented through images, selected by the patient, the app identifies the most probable presumptive diagnoses- based on over 20 different symptoms leading to more than 330 differential diagnoses, including some possible rare diseases- and can also provide a triage assessment indicating whether your condition requires a visit to the doctor or the emergency room within the next 3 hours, or if it’s advisable to dispatch an ambulance or seek medical assistance. We can also assess that the situation is not severe, and you can stay at home following some advice and recommendations. Additionally, you can reach out to your local healthcare center (CAP) or call 061 for medical assistance.
Is it truly important to have published scientific evidence?
Yes, it is, because we believe it is the only way to establish a foundation for our solution, WtsWrng, to be reliable and professional in providing triage recommendations for symptoms that patients may experience anywhere and at any time. The scientific publication confirms that we work with decision trees based on medical knowledge from specialized individuals accustomed to treating patients.
Furthermore, it is an open-access and peer-reviewed scientific publication, meaning it has been validated by scientists not affiliated with our project, and from their perspective, the methodology used is accurate and reliable. You can access this publication in the Blog section of our website: https://wtswrng.com/scientific-paper/
What does it mean for our app to be culturally and religiously sensitive?
We are aware that every culture has its idiosyncrasies, and we take into consideration that minorities always exist, and the society around us influences our decisions to seek medical advice or use emergency health services. Therefore, the images in our app may appear differently based on the geo-location from which the consultation and app usage are made, sexual orientation, predominant ethnicity, etc. For example, the images may either show apparent nudity or avoid specific anatomical details to avoid offending the user, or they may depict a female figure wearing a veil or other significant religious elements if the target audience is Muslim
What does 'Presumptive Diagnosis' mean?
A presumptive diagnosis identifies a likely condition of a patient. A presumption is not evidence, but a diagnosis that is suspected by an experienced clinician (in person or virtual) based on the expressed symptoms from a citizen that feels unwell and on the available scientific evidence.
