webmd kioskCHICAGO, IL – A new plan unveiled by WebMD plans to take strain off of primary care physicians.

“This is undoubtedly the next step in accurate medical diagnosis, a huge step for medicine both as a practice and as an art form,” Dr. Hannenburg stated excitedly at a press conference revealing WebMD’s new plan to install fully functional medical kiosks at major shopping centers and a few select inner city gas stations.

“Obviously this being a new program is going to take some tweaking in the beginning, but in just a few simple questions these wonder machines can take some common symptoms and narrow down your diagnosis to an ear infection or cancer, it’s an absolute marvel,” he continued.

WebMD’s pilot program is set to begin in December 2015 with plans to spread to other cities by April 2016.  “This is not only a luxury, but a necessity,” stated a WebMD representative.  “It has been clear for quite some time that medical information obtained from the internet is more easily accessible and just as accurate as information obtained from physicians, PAs, NPs, and nurses with years of experience and education.”

This seems to be just the beginning of “kiosk” medicine according to WebMD who plans to incorporate a new algorithm into their diagnostic matrix including a program that automatically browses the most accurate medical information from actor’s Twitter accounts and blogs written by Southern California soccer moms.  It is truly an exciting time for medicine.
