SEMANTIC ANALYSIS

The results of our semantic analysis are shown below using the website's language.

They are the main concepts covered by healthlinkbc.ca.

Each concept has a confidence score. The higher it is, the more important the topic is relative to the page.

Topics
HealthLinkBC Confidence: 86% Arrow up

HealthLinkBC is a government-funded telehealth service launched in 2001, which provides non-emergency health information to the residents of British Columbia, Canada through combined telephone, internet, mobile app, and print resources.

HealthLink BC has two dedicated phone numbers 8-1-1 and 7-1-1 for hearing impaired callers.

Lifestyle (sociology) Confidence: 70% Arrow up

The term lifestyle can denote the interests, opinions, behaviours, and behavioural orientations of an individual, group, or culture.

Symptom Confidence: 69% Arrow up

A symptom (from Greek σύμπτωμα, "accident, misfortune, that which befalls", from συμπίπτω, "I befall", from συν- "together, with" and πίπτω, "I fall") is a departure from normal function or feeling which is noticed by a patient, reflecting the presence of an unusual state, or of a disease.

A symptom is subjective, observed by the patient, and cannot be measured directly, whereas a sign is objectively observable by others.

For example, paresthesia is a symptom (only the person experiencing it can directly observe their own tingling feeling), whereas erythema is a sign (anyone can confirm that the skin is redder than usual).

Symptoms and signs are often nonspecific, but often combinations of them are at least suggestive of certain diagnoses, helping to narrow down what may be wrong.

In other cases they are specific even to the point of being pathognomonic.

Trust (emotion) Confidence: 68% Arrow up

In a social context, trust has several connotations.

Definitions of trust typically refer to a situation characterized by the following aspects: One party (trustor) is willing to rely on the actions of another party (trustee); the situation is directed to the future.

In addition, the trustor (voluntarily or forcedly) abandons control over the actions performed by the trustee.

As a consequence, the trustor is uncertain about the outcome of the other's actions; they can only develop and evaluate expectations.

The uncertainty involves the risk of failure or harm to the trustor if the trustee will not behave as desired.

Vladimir Ilych Lenin expressed this idea with the sentence "Trust is good, control is better".
