Orbita rolls-out major enhancements to industry-leading voice and conversational AI platform to streamline development of healthcare applications
Orbita Voice™ will showcase at HIMSS 2018 in Las Vegas, March 5-8, 2018.
Boston, MA – March 5, 2018 – Orbita, Inc. today announced major enhancements to its Orbita Voice™ platform for creating powerful healthcare applications using voice assistive and conversational AI technology such as Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant, chat bots, and others. This latest version adds to Orbita’s position as the first healthcare platform provider for true omni-channel application development and maintenance across multiple voice and conversational AI channels.
Orbita is showcasing the newest release of Orbita Voice™ at HIMSS 2018 in Las Vegas, March 6-9, in the Connected Experience Area, Booth 8700-13. Orbita President Nathan Treloar will present a HIMSS session titled Can You Heal Me Now? Voice in Healthcare at the Bellini Stage on Wednesday, March 7 from 10:30 to 10:50 am.
The latest enhancements to Orbita Voice™ build on the omni-channel, “create once, publish to all” capabilities of the platform by providing:
> New pre-built web and mobile app templates to accelerate development.
> New analytics tools for measuring user engagement across multiple voice and chat bot interfaces.
> Seamless switching between user interface modes (voice, text chat bots, touch, keyboard, and analog phone).
> Integrated search features and templates to make healthcare content more accessible through voice and chat bot apps.
> Security enhancements that expand use of voice assistive technology for applications that include sensitive, but useful user data, including Protected Health Information (PHI) regulated under HIPAA.
“As voice assistive and conversational applications for healthcare become more in demand, the ability reach patients across any voice-enabled device or conversational interface is becoming more important,” said Bill Rogers, Orbita CEO.
Rogers added that concerns about HIPAA regulations have tempered interest in voice-assistive applications based on devices like the Amazon Echo and Google Home. “Orbita takes protection of client data and regulatory compliance very seriously. We have focused on delivering platform enhancements and a new reference implementation that enable completely secure voice and chat bot solutions for HIPAA-compliant smartphones, tablets and custom devices,” he stated.
“It was only last year at HIMSS that we met Orbita, attending ourselves with quite little interest in voice,” said Kai Worrell, CEO at Worrell, a global healthcare design, strategy and innovation firm. “What a difference a year makes. Since then we’ve done five studies in this area and have three underway, all using Orbita as our conversational platform. Their technology enables our team to conduct patient research, as well as design for health management solutions in a highly efficient and cost-effective way.”
Orbita provides digital solutions that leverage next-generation voice assistant and AI technologies to vastly improve the effectiveness and efficiency of remote patient monitoring, clinical education, care coordination, and research. Developers use Orbita’s platform to design, build, and manage digital and conversational healthcare solutions across multi-modal, omni-channel environments including voice assistants, web sites, and mobile phones. With Orbita, developers can enable anyone, regardless of technical skill, to easily create and maintain highly engaging, intelligent conversational experiences that help improve outcomes, reduce costs, and minimize risks for patients with chronic or post-acute healthcare needs.
