Chatbots continue to own headlines. Although an intriguing and efficient form of AI, you will not be paging Dr. Chatbot anytime soon. Rather than replacing medical staff, the technology will work in unison with a continuum of care.
Get the gist of the chatbot boom in this Forbes article, AI By The Numbers: 33 Facts And Forecasts About Chatbots And Voice Assistants.
While chatbots might be the belle of the ball, other applications are making significant moves in healthcare. Microsoft’s research project, Health Vault Insights, is now leveraging Validic’s data connectivity platform to engage clinicians and consumer devices. According to MobiHealthNews, the goal of the project is to improve delivery of care and foster a sense of personal responsibility in patients.
Fitbit Health Solutions is the new brand name that has consumed Fitbit Group Health and Fitbit Digital Health. This change signifies a new strategy to go after health plans and health systems using similar methods from their enterprise opportunities that continuously engage, encourage and help maintain care for users.
Healthcare technology has come a long way from the launch of Google’s personal health information centralization service in 2007 and momentum will continue full speed ahead in this Fourth Industrial Revolution.
