Healthcare is something that every individual has a right to, but the monetization of healthcare has made it difficult for people to get even the most basic medical attention. Dr. Joseph Jacobs is an individual who seeks to change this. By creating a unique AI through his company, Advanced Tissue Release Institute or ASTR, he can push his goal forward.
Dr. Joseph Jacobs holds a doctorate of physical therapy degree from the Dominican College in New York. He is also a two-time cancer survivor, having endured chronic migraines, headaches, fatigue, and pain. Fortunately, he was able to win the battle against cancer and embarked on a journey to fulfill his ambitions. Dr. Jacobs started to utilize the knowledge he acquired from school to research and develop his specialty for treating his patients’ pain more effectively than medical school. Between 2011 and 20221, the doctor developed maneuvers, tools, and methodologies that he would eventually carry with the birth of the ASTR Institute.
ASTR Institute was founded in 2018 to provide patients with the tools to treat and educate themselves. The Institute strives to educate people working in the medical field to help their patients get to the root causes of their pain. ASTR Institute also offers various home pain treatment options on their online shop, giving them more choices to offer their patients.
Dr. Jacobs has witnessed people’s hesitance even to get a medical evaluation throughout his years in the medical field. Seeking to change this, he developed an AI software that could provide people with free online medical evaluation for their patients. The AI, called Ask ASTR, is Dr. Jacob’s solution for affordable healthcare. By providing free online medical evaluations, he gives patients the option to save at least $150 to $500 on doctor visits. Ask ASTR lets people know which healthcare provider they need to see, whether they have an emergency condition and if they need to go to the ER, and many more.
With Ask ASTR, Dr. Joseph Jacobs seeks to make a tremendous impact in the medical field as he strives to help more people get the help they need. “It (Ask ASTR makes healthcare affordable,” he shared, “The goal is to save people’s lives by directing them to proper healthcare services or to treat themselves at home naturally.” Whereas most people are driven to make something for the sake of profit, Dr. Jacobs only hopes to help people take advantage of the free evaluation that Ask ASTR provides.
“This software has the potential to save a lot of people’s lives,” he said, “The algorithm built in Ask ASTR detects possible life-threatening health conditions and directs the user towards the right course of action. This is a revolutionary system that will change our healthcare system for the better and lower the cost of healthcare by directing patients to the right healthcare provider that they need to see.”
Although the AI has only recently been created, Dr. Joseph Jacobs hopes to establish Ask ASTR as the go-to platform for people to turn to healthcare needs without spending a single cent for pre-medical evaluation. He foresees his system will reach similar heights to Google, offering a free search engine for the medical field.
