Imagine a patient receiving reminders at 8:00 every morning that it's time to take her medication, then logging that information through conversations with Amazon Alexa.
Imagine a surgeon asking for a patient’s electronic health records or a closer look at X-rays via hands-free voice applications in the operating room.
Virtual assistants like Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant make it possible for people to automate many of the functions they have previously done manually. So it shouldn’t be a surprise that voice assistants are entering the health care field, whether they are used for patient care and prescription management, medical diagnosis and research, or even pharmaceutical sales training and customer relationship management.
For example, as many as 23% of U.S. physicians report using voice assistants at work. They can ask clinically related questions and get answers directly; ask questions about drug doses and interactions; dictate patient notes and enter information into a patient's health record; and even deliver messages, like reminders or follow-up questions.
