Alexa Can Help You Now… How Intelligent Personal Assistants Can Change Patients’ Lives | Thingee’s Tech-Talk

In our Tech-Talk video series we’ve been touching on voice activated tech devices and the impact they have on our lives.  This week we get a little more “personal” as we explore how voice activated intelligent devices can be used within the life science and medical arenas to help improve the lives of patients.

There are new examples almost everyday of how patients are aided by the use of technology like Amazon’s Alexa.  For example, Alexa’s technology can have tremendous benefit to the visually impaired with the ability to easily access information, listen to an audible book or transcript and more.  What about asthma patients who need up to date air quality information, or potential benefits for diabetic or cancer patients, and what about care for expectant mothers or even support for new parents?  The possibilities are nearly endless and just beginning to take shape! So, take a listen to hear more about the impact of this technology and then let’s work together to develop ways that it can benefit your customers, your business and expand opportunities for both.

Thanks for watching!

1:56 – home and saying it’s time to take your

1:57 – medication diabetes you know and

2:00 -potentially you know glucose levels of a

2:03 -specific food so we can actually go and

2:06 -ask that of Siri or Alexa and then let’s

2:11- talk about a large patient population we

2:13 – have women that are either trying to get

2:15 – pregnant they are pregnant or they’ve

2:17 – had a baby so now we have three specific

2:19  -patient populations that can use this so

2:22 – if I’m trying to get pregnant what is

2:24 – the right time for me to attempt to

2:25 – conceive what is you know if I’m on

2:29 – therapy in order to help me conceive
