The COVID-19 Medbot is an online consultation based risk assessment for coronavirus. Click on the Medbot icon and patients will be asked a series of questions, designed to assess their risk of contracting Coronavirus. The Medbot then provides a recommendation on whether they need to be tested and provides any follow up actions they may need to take.
Members of the public can also choose to have these recommendations emailed to them. The questions, analysis and results are based on the Health Service Executive (HSE), Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and World Health Organisation (WHO) guidelines on COVID-19.
The Covid-19 Med Bot was developed with the help of two Irish consultant doctors, Dr Oran Rigby and Dr Amy Hollingworth.
The #medbot is continuously updated with new information, is free and can be used as many times as needed.
