RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, NC and BOSTON, MA (February 20, 2017) — Lenovo Health, a progressive leader in health IT, is joining together with Orbita, an innovator in connected home healthcare, to demonstrate a breakthrough virtual home care solution at HIMSS 2017. Based on two recently unveiled products, Lenovo Smart Assistant™ and Orbita Voice™, the solution will be showcased at HIMSS 2017 in Orlando, Florida, from Feb. 20-23 at Lenovo booth #6170.
Lenovo’s Smart Assistant, first previewed at the Consumer Electronics Show in January, is a voice-controlled speaker for the home that combines the power of the Amazon Alexa voice platform with unique Lenovo styling and unsurpassed quality of Harman Kardon speaker technology.
Orbita’s Voice is a unique voice experience manager for healthcare that builds on the power of voice assistant platforms like Amazon Alexa to enable intuitive, patient-centric home care experiences that dramatically improve patient engagement, care coordination, and outcomes.
Integrating Orbita Voice with the Lenovo Smart Assistant demonstrates how natural voice assistant technology can help patients with chronic and post-acute care needs be more fully engaged in their wellness at home. Enhancing a patient’s ability to access and share information with providers, caregivers, and family members contributes to improved care journey management, treatment adherence, and medication compliance.
“There is a significant gap in the delivery of care; it’s not what happens when in front of your providers that’s most important, but what happens at home, making it a care setting,” says Tom Foley, Director of Global Health Solution Strategy at Lenovo Health. “Lenovo Health’s Virtual Care solution aims to innovate the home and the manner in which one engages technology. Leveraging our voice and utilizing telehealth to interact with a patient’s provider will transform the delivery of care model. Our collaboration with Orbita will allow us to achieve this vision.”
“Voice is the user interface of the future and is transforming how we think about patient engagement in home healthcare,” said Nathan Treloar, Orbita president and chief operating officer. “We’re excited to work with the visionary team at Lenovo to showcase the newest in voice-enabled care coordination.”
