How Well Works ?
Well’s Methodology is developed from guidelines used internationally, as well as, patient data from cancer hospitals in Thailand. The rationale was developed through hazard ratios available in published peer-reviewed literature. Furthermore, the data set of chief complaints, from patient’s profile, will train the A.I. This allows a prediction feature helping patients address symptoms, get more information about their risks and be more insightful about cancer check-ups.
