Suki Adds "Show Me" Commands to Its Voice-Enabled Digital Assistant
Suki, a provider of voice artificial intelligence (AI) technology for healthcare, has added capabilities to its Suki Assistant.
An expanded menu of commands now gives doctors a more streamlined information retrieval and documentation experience. The "show me" commands allow clinicians to retrieve a wide set of patient information, including vital signs, medications, allergies, and medical and surgical histories from the electronic health record .
"Suki Assistant has been a game-changer for our practice in terms of documentation and time spent on administrative tasks. The solution has freed up significant time for my colleagues and I to focus on our primary mission: spending time with patients," said Dr. Judd Reynolds, family medicine physician at a large multi-specialty clinic, in a statement. "The new Show Me commands make it extremely easy to quickly access important information like medication or allergy lists so we can have thorough, informed conversations with our patients without being distracted by searching and clicking in the EHR."
"Transforming physician administrative workflows through the promise of voice and AI remains Suki's primary mission. Our team's innovation continues to improve the outlook on clerical burden, one of the principal causes of the physician burnout epidemic plaguing healthcare," said Punit Soni, CEO of Suki, in a statement. "Suki keeps getting better, and the new capabilities are available to users at no additional cost. We are committed to delivering the best possible experience to our users; quickly and continuously improving is the best way to do so."
The Suki Assistant harnesses advanced natural language processing and machine learning algorithms and architecture for physician documentation. The new features complement a wide variety of existing voice commands to standardize common clinical documentation elements.
Suki works on mobile (iOS and Android), web, and as a native Windows application.
The Fall '22 Release of Suki Assistant offers new voice capabilities for medical dictation.
360 Research expects the global market for healthcare-related voice-assisted systems to grow at 20.3 percent for the next five years.
Suki's investment will help it advance development of its voice-enabled digital assistant for health care.
