Symptom Checker  

Everyday Health Inc.
A partnership with ISABEL HEALTH, one of the most powerful diagnostic tool available, has allowed Everyday Health to create an easy-to-use symptom checker that uses ISABEL's API and provides users with the most accurate possible diagnoses based on the user's symptoms, information on possible conditions, and a triage function that provides suggestions on what to do based on their symptoms.
  Simplifying the Process                                                                                   

With so many symptom checkers available and in-use, our primary goal was to simplify the process and provide the patient with information from ISABEL's database and Everyday Health's condition and illness center.

"Get Care" - Triage
User testing has shown that a majority of symptom checkers do not provide anything past "Possible Diagnoses", which leaves users high and dry after being diagnosed with an assortment of possible conditions.
 
"Get Care" has users answer 7 quick questions and then provies the user with information on how severe this condition is, and shows immediate actions that they can take.
An explanation of "What Next" along with a friendly disclaimer.
User answers 7 questions.
Once user answers the final question, they are taken directly
to their results.
