Don't Panic: FreeMD Virtual Doctor Helps Decide If You Have the Flu
Date:5/4/2009

ORLANDO, Fla., May 4 /PRNewswire/ -- FreeMD Flu Checkup uses breakthrough virtual doctor to help people decide if they have the flu and what they should do.

"Even without the threat of a flu epidemic, consumers are on their own when making the decision to see a doctor," says Dr. Stephen J. Schueler, founder of DSHI Systems. "How does the average person know what to do? Do you go to the emergency room, urgent care center, or doctor's office? Are your symptoms mild enough that you can stay home and avoid spreading the flu virus?"

FreeMD Flu Checkup answers the following questions:

  • Do I have the flu?
  • Do I need to see a doctor?
  • Where should I go for care?

"We have created a life-like experience that provides personalized recommendations," says Dr. Schueler.

Seasonal flu and swine flu are both caused by the influenza virus. Human swine flu is a new type of influenza virus that can only be diagnosed with a laboratory test.

Dr. Schueler cautions: "FreeMD Flu Checkup cannot distinguish seasonal influenza from human swine flu, because the symptoms are so similar. But it will help you determine if you have the flu, rather than a cold, bronchitis, or a sinus infection. Most importantly, it will help you decide what action to take if you have the flu."

FreeMD.com uses artificial intelligence to control a video doctor that asks questions and shows pictures. The virtual doctor analyzes over 3,000 symptoms and injuries in infants, children, and adults. Every FreeMD interview creates an anonymous record that contains recommendations and care instructions. Consumers may e-mail the record to their doctor or print a copy and take it with them. This helps consumers to be better prepared for a doctor visit. FreeMD has created more than 400,000 records in the past 3 months.
