Description

Voice-enabled solutions are rapidly becoming part of our everyday lives. Over the next 4 years, Amazon will sell an estimated 113 million Echo devices, and competitors are close behind. As this technology transforms the way we live, uses will shift from managing playlists to managing healthcare, with potential applications for EHR, care plans, and patient monitoring. Major health players have been quick to demonstrate its value, from Merck’s Alexa Diabetes Challenge, to Boston’s Children’s hospital pilot, to WebMD’s Alexa Skill.

What might come next, and what does this mean for your organization?
