The self-checker uses an AI-powered algorithm factoring in responses to questions about an individual's health. Once all of the questions are answered, the self-checker will tell the user what action to take, based on the latest clinical guidelines. Those actions include staying home, receiving information on emotional support, contacting a primary care provider or conducting a telehealth visit, or seeking emergency care.
