The portal is connected with the Personal Health Record (EHR) and Electronic Medical Record (EMR), which can facilitate a standardized and personalized description of a symptom. For example, a coarse term can be replaced with a finer one to narrow the search scope and an extra term can be added. The final description can be sent to a general practitioner or a medical doctor for further healthcare suggestions
