Get Immediate Healthcare Guidance

Whether you have a headache, a skin rash, or you think you have Influenza or COVID-19, the Symptom Checker provides healthcare guidance at the first onset of your symptoms.

The Bluestem Health Symptom Checker is free and easy-to-use. Simply:

  • State your symptoms in your own words
  • Answer a few simple questions
  • Get a recommendation about the next step in your healthcare journey

The Symptom Checker was developed to help people in communities like Lincoln, Nebraska and Bluestem Health patients narrow their search in the medical information journey. It leverages scientifically validated artificial intelligence developed by health professionals and is based on clinical knowledge from leading medical sources.

You can choose from a variety of factors that could be related to your symptoms to help you narrow down a potential medical condition. Keep in mind that it is NOT a diagnostic tool; it does NOT take into consideration your personal health history or other factors which would point to a definitive medical cause. The most reliable way to determine the cause of your symptoms is to visit a healthcare provider.

Based on your answers, the Symptom Checker advises the best course of action for your healthcare needs.
