LA GRANGE, Ill. – Health Navigator, a company that delivers clinical content for digital health, has partnered with Macadamian, a health care software design and development consulting firm, to develop and demonstrate a proof-of-concept skill for voice-enabled digital assistants. The Alexa Skill is a voice-enabled health triage service based on the clinical content in Health Navigator’s triage engine and allows a person to ask a digital assistant about symptoms and to receive care advice. Based on user-entered symptoms, the skill provides information on how serious the symptoms are, whether it is an emergency and if the user needs to see a doctor.“Solutions like the Health Navigator Skill can increase access to health care, while reducing the cost of care,” said Dr. Jeffrey Schwartz, president of Health Navigator, in a statement. “By interacting with their voice assistant, people can easily make decisions about the level of care they need and can manage their symptoms in ways that are more cost effective than a trip to the emergency room or clinic.”Health Navigator and Macadamian are currently looking for partners to publish the skill and make it widely available for public use.
