Imagine being guided through your next doctor’s visit using augmented reality and artificial intelligence.
It’s not science fiction, but a reality at five Safeway grocery stores in the Phoenix metro area, including a location on the south edge of the Arizona State University campus in Tempe.
ASU alumni and students make up about two-thirds of employees at AdviNOW Medical, a Scottsdale-based medtech startup specializing in the self-guided medical stations popping up around the Valley.
As patients wait to see a health care professional, an augmented reality-based platform guides them to enter their vitals and record symptoms, then generates a diagnosis and treatment plan. When patients meet with their health care provider, either in person or through video consultation, the provider can easily verify the AI-collected information and confirm the patient’s diagnosis.
