Community Health Alliance Launches 24/7 Symptom Checker Tool to Enhance Patient Care in Northern Nevada

Enabling patients to make informed decisions about their healthcare journey.

Community Health Alliance, a leading non-profit healthcare provider in Northern Nevada serving over 30,000 patients, is proud to announce the launch of its Symptom Checker tool, an online platform designed to assess patients’ symptoms and guide them to the appropriate level of care.

Accessible 24/7 through Community Health Alliance’s website, Symptom Checker empowers patients to identify the area of their discomfort and specify their symptoms. By entering this information, patients receive a care guide, enabling them to make informed decisions about their healthcare journey. Whether it’s booking an appointment with their primary care provider at Community Health Alliance or seeking care at an urgent care facility or hospital, Symptom Checker ensures patients receive the most suitable care for their needs.

“The Symptom Checker tool is designed to help patients make decisions about seeking the right level of medical care in Northern Nevada,” stated Dr. Travis Walker, MD, MPH, FAAFP, chief medical officer at Community Health Alliance. “This tool assesses their symptoms and provides a detailed care guide. However, it is important to note that the Symptom Checker is not a substitute for professional medical advice or care. I encourage everyone to consult their healthcare provider if they have any questions or concerns regarding their health.”

Community Health Alliance is committed to ensuring the well-being of the community it serves. As part of this commitment, Symptom Checker is available to all individuals free of charge, regardless of whether they are Community Health Alliance patients or not. This valuable resource aims to enhance access to healthcare information and promote proactive decision-making in managing one’s health.
