Healthcare usually consists of visiting a clinic to speak with a physician about an ailment, but the 'Ask an Expert' service has been positioned as a new way for consumers to get help from anywhere.

The service incorporates Babylon AI service and can be accessed from within the Samsung Health app on some Galaxy smartphones in the UK. Users can access the service to book a video appointment with a practitioner rather than head into a clinic, have their symptoms checked by the system automatically and even manage their prescriptions.

The 'Ask an Expert' service acknowledges the changing face of healthcare as consumers look to their smartphones as a tool for staying connected and healthy.
