Healthline and GE partnered to launch 3D “BodyMaps” – a web based human body visualization tool that enables health information consumers to understand more about human anatomy.
This tool is very similar to Google’s Body search engine, but the latter is more of a technology demonstration, Healthline BodyMaps is created to be more of an information resource. Paired with Healthline’s database of health information, which is curated and semantically organized by medical practitioners, you could think of this tool as a sort of three dimensional school text book.
You can search by keyword for a particular organ and search suggestions as an aide memoir to particular medical names. Definitions are in plain english and provide further information as to what disorders can affect a particular organ. Related videos explaining symptoms and conditions that can affect that order appear underneath.
Results also include advice on staying healthy, such as recipe suggestions, exercise recommendations and wellness tips, as well as information on related symptoms and related conditions. There are also shortcuts to services such as finding a doctor, checking your symptoms, and exploring treatments.
The 3D visualization functions as an exploded diagram so you can browse inner parts of the organ.
Healthline BodyMaps will also appear as a kind of universal search results type feature, for searches related to symptoms and condition names. Currently it appears on Healthline Symptom Search and their main search engines and will shortly be displayed on searches on GE Healthymagination. Other partners within Healthline’s network may also provde access to the tool for their users.
