QuantaMed's Breakthrough in Medical Inquiry Accuracy

Nov 16, 2023

In an era where medical misinformation online can lead to critical health risks, QuantaMed, a trailblazing medical start-up, sought to create a haven of validated medical data for healthcare professionals. Their vision was to establish a platform that would become the touchstone for physicians, nurses, and hospital staff seeking accurate medical information, thereby elevating the standard of healthcare knowledge.

What was the business objective?

QuantaMed's ambitious mission was to revolutionize the healthcare industry by addressing the overwhelming abundance of unreliable health information that inundates the online space. Recognizing the critical need to empower healthcare professionals with a reliable and precise tool, the company focused on developing a cutting-edge platform that would provide them with seamless access to accurate medical data.

By doing so, QuantaMed aimed to significantly enhance the quality of care delivered to patients, ensuring that healthcare professionals had the most reliable and up-to-date information at their fingertips. With unwavering dedication, QuantaMed set out to create a platform that not only delivered authenticated medical responses but did so with unparalleled accuracy, setting a new benchmark for excellence in the field of healthcare technology.


How did we accomplish it?

Sigmoidal's approach was systematic and data-driven. We began by amassing a vast dataset of specialized medical questions and their corresponding answers, ensuring a robust foundation for the platform's knowledge base.

  • Utilizing the BERT model, a cutting-edge machine learning technique, we transformed these questions into feature vectors, creating a searchable repository of medical intelligence.
  • These vectors, each tagged with a unique ID, were meticulously cataloged in a PostgreSQL database, facilitating swift and precise retrieval.
  • Our open-domain Question Answering (QA) system was engineered to locate relevant documents and pinpoint the exact text snippet providing the answer, a crucial feature for time-pressed medical personnel.


The Results

The fruition of Sigmoidal's efforts was a market-ready platform that revolutionized access to medical information for healthcare professionals. With a remarkable 91% accuracy rate in answering specialized medical queries, the platform stood out as a beacon of reliability in the medical community.

This increased confidence in the platform translated to a substantial 3.2 million increase in sales for QuantaMed's medical libraries in the first quarter of 2021 compared to the previous year. By furnishing authoritative, scientific content at their fingertips, Sigmoidal's solution significantly augmented the informational prowess of healthcare professionals, enabling them to make more informed decisions and enhancing the efficacy of their practice.
