Using A.I. to provide personalized medical advice, Ada Health is bringing the doctor one click away.

Have a bad cough, scratchy throat or a rash? It is not very likely that the first thing you will do is call your doctor. Instead, you will probably turn to the internet. Luckily, an app like Ada can literally do the work for you!

Founded in 2011 in Berlin by a team of medical professionals, scientists and engineers, Ada is helping millions of people around the world find appropriate healthcare and make informed decisions about their illness. If a doctor visit is not necessary—for instance, if you have a sore eye and can be treated at home—you can use Ada to get information on care options relevant for you.

First developed as a tool to support medical professionals, Ada is now the leading consumer-facing app that combines medical knowledge with artificial intelligence to help people better understand and manage their health. Something like Amazon’s Alexa in the healthcare context, the app asks users relevant questions about their symptoms before inferring what might be the cause. The algorithm is able to compare your information against millions of similar symptom combinations in a matter of seconds. At the end of the health assessment, the app helps users by providing guidance on appropriate next steps.

#1 on the Competitive Market

Since its launch in 2016 Ada has grown to become the #1 medical app in over 130 countries. The app currently has more than 6 million users and 10 million in completed assessments. It has won nine global innovation awards and is available in five languages (EN, DE, ES, PT, FR).
