“The patient needs to be empowered and take advantage of the strengths of these technologies like voice, with an understanding of what it actually means for their own privacy and security.” -Nathan Treloar
“I think it's really important to recognize the power voice assisted technology has had. Just feedback from our initial pilots - we had 100% of people in our first group report that the next time they're in hospital, they wanted to be in a room where this technology is available. It had that much of an impact on them in terms of being able to access both care and information that they were previously not able to access.” -Nick White
Voice technology has taken off in the last decade and seeped into various industries, including healthcare and life sciences. Since Amazon’s 2019 announcement of their first limited program for building Alexa skills that can transfer personal health information (PHI) in compliance with HIPAA, there have been numerous developments.
