Model

We've continued to refine the structure of our conditions, symptoms and risk factors. A couple of new diseases have been added. We've minimized a rate of over-confidence of rare conditions.

API

We've introduced a couple of bug fixes and performance improvements. A significant focus has been put into improving question selection strategy for conditions strongly associated with a particular risk factor (e.g. skeletal trauma).

March 23, 2017

Model

We've added new conditions and removed a few overlapping and non-relevant diseases. The accuracy of the model has been re-tested and improved for the common primary care and emergency situations. We've continued refinements of the structure of symptoms and risk factors.

API

We've introduced important enhancements to our underlying reasoning engine:

  • The algorithm may now ask about risk factors such as chronic conditions (e.g. diabetes), events (e.g. injuries) and activities (e.g. mushroom consumption).
  • Improved sequencing of questions to better differentiate between conditions.
  • Improved triage recommendations as they were initially too restrictive.

Model

We added question groups for pain intensity of head and abdomen. We also improved filtering of pre-menopausal symptoms and conditions. A few new conditions have been added and some questions rephrased.

February 15, 2017

Model

We're continously extending our model. The structure of conditions was cleaned up (e.g meningitis was removed because its subtypes – like viral meningitis – already exist). Besides, we added some conditions and improved the translations.

API

We're exited to introducte the new endpoint. It's called /triage and it allows you to assess the severity level of reported symptoms. We published a brand new section in the documentation describing all details.

January 17, 2017

We're excited to begin this year with a major update of the Infermedica API.

Model

Major update of the model. Introduced new conditions, symptoms and risk factors with a focus on acute medical problems. The structure of symptoms and relations has also been refined. Symptom groups has been cleaned up and reorganized.

API

Improvements of the reasoning algorithm and request processing.

  • More flexible question selection which is now less depended on pre-fixed logic.
  • Better filtering of likely conditions.
  • Solved a bug causing null questions to be returned on rare occassions.
  • Better error handling.
  • Introduced various techniques to prevent data-scraping (malicious actions against the API are obviously prohibited).
  • More scalable and reliable server infrastructre in two fail-over locations.

November 21, 2016

We’re constantly improving. From now on we’re going to post all changes here. All updates are divided into two groups:

  • Model – all changes affecting the medical concepts (conditions, symptoms, risk factors and lab tests). We’ll let you know what has been added, deleted or updated.
  • API – all amendments in the Inference Engine and other algorithms.

Check out what’s new and update your application’s code, if necessary.

Model

Many new relations have been added and refined in the underlying model. Please make sure you also read through the list of removed elements.
