Alexa, show me innovation: BayCare uses voice technology for patients


    While many have gotten used to having Amazon’s Alexa voice technology fulfill requests like playing a favorite album or telling a joke, that technology is now being used to help hospital patients and physicians alike.

    Clearwater-based BayCare Health System has implemented a voice technology system called Aiva across 14 of its hospitals, using Alexa to allow patients to fulfill a variety of requests like changing the TV station, asking a nurse for water and more.
