SPOKANE, WA. (May 17, 2013) — Next IT, the world’s leading provider of intelligent virtual assistants (IVAs), is proud to announce that its healthcare technology has received Lead Product Recognition from the Future of Health Technology Institute (FHTI), a leading health technology think tank dedicated to defining the health technology agenda for the 21st century.
The award was presented to Next IT Founder and CEO Fred Brown at the FHTI’s 18th annual Future of Health Technology Summit ™, held on May 6th in Cambridge, Massachusetts and honored Next IT’s virtual health assistant technology, which is built on the company’s natural language Alme platform.
“Alme-inspired virtual health assistants will help organizations achieve an 80 percent or higher success rate in facilitating conversations that have previously been conducted only by humans and, importantly, will exceed 99 percent accuracy in managing those conversations,” said Brown.
“We need to design future healthcare the way consumers like it, smart and connected,” said Renata Bushko, Founder of the FHTI and editor of the Future of Health Technology book predicting arrival of virtual health assistants. “Mobile virtual health coaches and assistants are here to stay for the simple reason that they are inexpensive, accurate, tireless and available 24/7.”
