IntelliTek Health and Samsung Partner on Voice Assistant
IntelliTek Health, a developer of patient-facing virtual assistant tools, is partnering with Samsung Electronics to bring artificial intelligence (AI) and digital voice assistance to healthcare providers and patients. IntelliTek Health's Personal Virtual Assistant (PVA) is a tablet-based AI solution that uses voice assistance to facilitate a hands-free automated engagement suite of functions for patients and care teams.
"The PVA is the leading technology to address post-discharge care for providers and patients. Every year, approximately 36 million discharges occur across the U.S. healthcare system, with the majority of patients left alone to handle their care journey post-discharge," said Martyn Molnar, global healthcare lead and products CEO of IntelliTek, in a statement. "Our collaboration with Samsung will help us address the significant health inequity in this space with Samsung mobile solutions and connectivity that offer simple, personalized medical communication and instruction between patients and their care teams in the critical window after leaving the hospital."
"Samsung's collaboration with IntelliTek Health reinforces our continued commitment to providing accurate digital touchpoint solutions to support innovation in the remote patient care coordination segment. Our combined expertise and resources will allow us to develop meaningful solutions to advance patient outcomes, improve clinical workflows, and enable more efficient cost-effective care," said Trevor Smith, head of business development for Samsung Healthcare Mobile B2B, in a statement.
