"The idea behind the consumerization of healthcare is that healthcare generally becomes more personalized and that individual patients become more empowered to make decisions about their health and consumer technology will play a role in informing that." -Nathan Treloar
"When you take a device like the smart speakers, which are relatively inexpensive devices - consumer technology with a low cost of entry - and you start to put them in people's homes. Then you develop these healthcare voice applications on top of those devices; it opens up a whole new way for patients to experience that health care journey. And that's what I've started to get really excited about." -Teri Fisher
