Google is making an easy process (direct answer) for symptom searching on mobile to help you explore your health condition quickly. Soon using the Google App, you will be able to get an overview description along with the information on self-treatment against your symptom search. Like if you search for “headache on one side“, Google will show you a list of related conditions (“headache,” “migraine,” “tension headache,” “cluster headache,” “sinusitis,” and “common cold”).
How Google is Doing this
Google has created the list of symptoms by looking for health conditions mentioned in web results and then checking them against high-quality medical information collected from doctors for Google’s Knowledge Graph. Google worked with a team of medical doctors to carefully review individual symptom information and experts at Harvard Medical School and Mayo Clinic evaluated related conditions for a representative sample of searches to help improve the lists.
Google also suggests that Symptom search is intended for informational purposes only, and you should always consult a doctor for medical advice.
This update will be rolled out on mobile in the next few days, supporting English language and from America, it extends to other languages and internationally afterwards.
