Voice-enablement: the next big wave in healthcare’s digital transformation journey

Amazon made news recently when details of its proposed emotion-sensing wearable device came to light. Interestingly, the device is being developed by the Alexa team who is using voice-recognition technology to detect the emotional state of the consumer. This is not the first-time voice-recognition is being used to diagnose a medical condition. Studies have established the use of voice in detecting early stages of Parkinson’s disease and it is logical for the same technologies to be used to detect and treat a range of conditions.
