‘Patients the losers’ despite $17m lift for ‘white elephant’ medical costs website

Australian Medical Association president Omar Khorshid said he did not expect many doctors would publish their fees on the website, which was “a complete failure” and “should be abandoned”.

“Until the website can actually give an individual patient confidence about what gap they might be facing compared with other practitioners, then it’s not going to be useful at all,” Dr Khorshid said.

Macquarie University Centre for the Health Economy director Henry Cutler said the fact participation was voluntary meant it would be “impossible for patients to determine value for money” by searching the website.

The latest official data from the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare shows Australians spent $30 billion on out-of-pocket medical costs in 2017-18.

Grattan Institute health economist Stephen Duckett said the budget provided “no real enhancement to ensure usable comparative information on all doctors will be available to the public”.

Health Minister Greg Hunt announced plans to build a medical fee transparency website detailing individual specialist fees in March 2019, to address “egregious” sums charged by some doctors, which was highlighted by patients resorting to crowdfunding websites to raise tens of thousands of dollars to pay for surgical procedures.

Official data shows the website, which went live in December, was accessed by fewer than 10,000 Australians in the first six months.

Australian Society of Anaesthetists president Suzi Nou said Medicare and health insurer rebates had failed to keep up with rising costs, and the government should address this “rather than spending millions of dollars for a website to document just how out of touch they are”.

Dr Khorshid said private health insurance needed to be “simplified” to make it possible to easily work out what gap patients would face if they saw a particular doctor, because the fact both insurers and surgeons had multiple fees

AI learns Hindi: How a health website achieved 86% accuracy in medical diagnosis

The mobile healthcare market in India is booming. It’s set to expand at a compound annual growth rate of 31%, reaching INR 13,800 crore by the end of 2024, according to the report “Healthcare Apps Market in India 2019” from Research and Markets. The COVID-19 outbreak has only catalysed the sector’s rapid growth.

Urban India is no stranger to online heath consultation thanks to the likes of Practo and WebMD. Now, though, online healthcare companies are seeing increased traction in tier-2 and tier-3 cities too.

In fact, it’s smaller cities, and not metros, that are now the biggest growth drivers in the health insurance domain.

Two Stanford graduates, Rajat and Manuj Garg, identified the business opportunity these cities represented in 2016, and created myUpchar to meet the need for reliable healthcare consultation.

More recently, with the increase in demand for online health consultation, myUpchar turned to AI to improve the efficiency of registered doctors in their network by examining patients’ inputs, combining them with their existing data, and suggesting a diagnoses to the doctors.

Rajat Garg, CEO and co-founder of myUpchar, said that the company has done over 10 lakh free consultations and this turned out to be a source for quality data.

“This data, along with our research, is used to provide the right diagnosis and medications for the queries. Our system then analyses user inputs which are combined with our data to generate a diagnosis and prescription,” he explained.

He added that the technology helped achieve a high accuracy level which decreased the time per consultation to 1–2 minutes.

The linguistic challenge

Garg said that the foremost concern was the scarcity of research in the Hindi AI space. Choosing the right kind of AI technology was a crucial task and
