FreeMDFreeMD® is an electronic doctor that conducts an interview, analyzes symptoms, and provides expert advice -- for free. is not a diagnostic program; it is a triage program.  The purpose of is to help consumers decide when and where to seek a physician evaluation (and ultimately a diagnosis).

Triage is about sending the person to the right place at the right time, given a combination of symptoms.  Simply put, triage is a risk assessment about symptoms.  Triage takes advantage of the fact that people with serious symptoms are more likely to have a serious condition.  Every time you go to the emergency room, the first thing they do is a triage evaluation.  After performing a brief interview, the ER staff determines your potential for serious illness.  If your potential is high, they see you fast.  If your potential is low, you have to wait.

The goal of diagnosis is to determine exactly what underlying condition is responsible for a patient's symptoms.  Every doctor needs to establish a diagnosis before starting therapy.  Since treatments are specific to the diagnoses, you can't treat the patient without establishing the diagnosis first.
