This milestone demonstrates the significant traction the tool has gained among individuals eager to better understand and manage their health.

Since Ubie’s expansion into the U.S. market, the company has been focused on empowering individuals to recognize symptoms early and pursue timely healthcare discussions. This process provides users with in-depth insights into their symptoms, a comprehensive analysis of potential diseases, signs to look out for, and the ideal specialist to consult.

As an evidence-based AI company, data lies at the core of Ubie’s operations and Ubie’s unique relationship with its users allows the collection of differentiated quantitative and qualitative data. Based on user feedback, approximately 75% of patients plan to seek professional medical advice after checking their symptoms with Ubie, reflecting Ubie’s ability to promote high-value care. U.S. user stories illustrate the benefits of Ubie’s AI Symptom Checker:

A woman in her 30s, experiencing eye pain and dizziness, utilized the Symptom Checker, which suggested possible health concerns and the importance of a medical assessment. She was later diagnosed with multiple sclerosis (MS), validating the importance of early investigation into her symptoms. An 80-year-old man was prompted by Ubie’s AI to consult a pulmonologist, which led to an early diagnosis of lung cancer, emphasizing the Symptom Checker’s role in early detection. A woman in her 50s was guided by the Symptom Checker to seek medical attention for what turned out to be accurate identifications of bone diseases, highlighting the tool’s effectiveness in early symptom identification. A 60s woman with dizziness mentioned, “The questions you asked matched all of my symptoms. Some I didn’t think to mention to my doctor at the time. I will raise them on my next visit. Thank you.”
