New echo-based Amazon home health tool by Orbita

The Voice Experience Designer was announced on Monday at the Connected Health Conference by Orbita. The software is described as a graphical tool healthcare organizations can use to build voice assistants that aid patients in their homes.

“We provide the connectivity services, the orchestration logic for data that comes in and collaboration app for caregivers to communication with patients,” according to Orbita Co-Founder and President Nathan Treloar. “We want to be able to work within care plans.”

Applications that are likely included are medication adherence, pain management, patient monitoring and coordination among various caregivers, so explains the company.

I don’t feel great today

Treloar also spoke of the beginning of a collaboration with the Boston-based Commonwealth Care Alliance next year to put the Voice Experience Designer to work in patients’ homes. “Alexa is a way for people to report objective data, such as blood pressure readings, as well as subjective data, like ‘I don’t feel that great today,” Treloar said.

While this version works with Alexa, Treloar explains that the company is not prescriptive about which voice assistants its software will run on and, in fact, it’s already working on Google Home, Apple Siri and Microsoft Cortana iterations to follow sometime next year, just not before HIMSS17.

“Right now we’re completely focused on getting shored up for HIMSS,” Treloar says. In Orlando Orbita will be showing the Voice Experience Designer, as well as tools for patient journey management, the care coordination experiences and the entirely new Care Pathways Manager. “We’re planning to have those ready and demonstrable at HIMSS,” he said.
