Most of the adults suffering from the disease continue to receive “passive care.” What they desire from healthcare today is patient-centricity. Coping with a chronic disease is simpler when stakeholders in the healthcare landscape act as active partners and enablers. Adopting new-age technology is key to transition from illness management to wellness management.

Voice Interactions – A Channel to Better Health Outcomes, Part 2: For HCPs
Holger Semsch - Director & Head EU LSH Consulting | July 3, 2018
337 Views

As value-based healthcare gradually replaces the traditional fee-for-service model, enhanced patient health outcomes will inevitably help HCPs. A study from 2016 unearthed that physicians spend nearly 50% of their time in office on paperwork.
 When patients come in for a consultation, they are required to answer an exhaustive list of questions about their medical history, administrative, or legal documentation, such as consent forms or proof of awareness. Voice-enabled devices can contribute extensively by providing instant answers to questions on drug compositions, possible side effects, and allergies, thereby enhancing the clinical outcome and improving patient-provider interactions. 
The recent Alexa Diabetes Challenge featured about 100 participants from across the world leveraging health pattern intelligence from various voice-enabled devices to make personalized recommendations and provide constant lifestyle coaching and monitoring. 
Whenever a patient is onboarded to a voice-supported patient engagement platform, it ultimately means that there is at least one HCP leveraging the same to digitalize a care plan. Once patients accept ‘Dr. Alexa’ as the administrator of their disease-related to-do list, it simply feels natural that the HCP is interacting with the same avatar while adjusting care plans during practice visits.
