The online questionnaire helps determine an individual’s risk from possible exposure to COVID-19 by taking into account all the factors, stages and variances in symptoms to provide a perspective on their unique current status. As an evidence-based assessment, it focuses on the user’s history and symptoms and is a safe and effective means to help make prudent health care decisions in regards to the COVID-19 pandemic. The tool provides users with recommended possible next steps that they can explore as needed with a physician or other medical provider.

Since the assessment is performed online, users do not have to leave home, thus avoiding the risk of potential exposure involved with visiting a medical facility or lab. Results are displayed immediately at the conclusion of the assessment, providing the ability to review and download a full report. The report, along with a comprehensive list of current symptoms, can then be shared digitally with a physician in consultation on appropriate next steps. All personal information is completely secure and confidential utilizing SOE’s patented HIPAA compliant technology platform which adheres to the highest standards of data security. Data and results are private unless users specifically authorize access to their physician or other health care providers.

The evidence based online digital assessment is not a substitute for the biological test, but complementary to the biological test. Results are not binary (yes or no) like a biological test, but are a four-level risk assessment for infection: 1) Remote, 2) Possible, 3) Probable, or 4) Certain. One advantage of this assessment is that users only need to seek medical help in the case of “Certain Infection” or “Probable infection.” Moreover, the assessment can be taken any number of times as the situation changes.

“I have reviewed the questions and I have contributed to the development of this innovative tool,” said Dr. Venkatraman Sadanand, Pediatric Neurosurgeon and member of the SOE expert physician panel. “Some of my patients have taken this assessment, and the results are very accurate. I would recommend for anyone to take it, and based on the results discuss it with their personal physician.”

“We are pleased to leverage the power of our patented technology platform and medical expertise to help in the global fight against the spread of COVID-19,” said Steve Krause, President, SecondOpinionExpert, Inc. “Our hope that this fast, free and comprehensive risk assessment tool will help save lives. Our plan is to continue to work alongside public health organizations to provide effective solutions that benefit society.”
