Healthy Advice from Alexa Courtesy of the NHS
Alright guys, Mark Phillips with SimpliSpoken This is the SimpliSpoken on Voice Daily Flash Briefing back again today to talk about a recent announcement that kind of made a lot of press Amazon Alexa offering this NHS, that’s National Health Service in the United Kingdom health advice. So people are going to be able to get health advice from Amazon. And that actually offers quite quite a bit in the way of operational efficiency for the National Health Service because they can provide, you know, real time answers to questions, basically. So maybe you might ask, Hey, what do I do about a migraine? Or, you know, do I have chicken pox or, you know, it’s really about empowerment, for real time access for patients and let letting patients sort of get answers in an accessible way. And so there’s quite a bit of potential here, I think. And it’s interesting, we we have some friends in the United Kingdom. And of course, we actually have some friends at work for the NHS. And so it’s I think it’s a very forward thinking, move on the part of the National Health Service, and they do have a lot of forward thinking, practices in their services. And so kudos to the NHS, a lot of folks in the press that are talking about privacy and whether or not it’s a good idea. Yes, I don’t think they’re going to violate patient privacy. And I don’t think this is going to be a big thing. I don’t think it’s much different than the mail that offers first aid type advice. So I think it’s a great move by the NHS and I think that the privacy concerns and the health information will be something that folks don’t end up really need to worry about. Alright guys, thanks a lot. This is the SimpliSpoken on Voice Daily Flash Briefing.
