S11: #107: To Bot or Not to Bot? The Rise of AI Chatbots in Healthcare in the Wake of COVID-19
When you visit a website, do you use the navigation menu? Or do you head to the lower right corner of your screen? T hat corner is where a little bit of internet magic happens and it’s becoming more prevalent, and having a great impact, in healthcare. It’s where you can get the answers and information you need just by typing in a few simple words or a question.
That little chatbot can be repeated millions and billions of times and provide more natural human interactions and benefits to both the users and the organization that deployed it.
To learn more about this technology and how it’s being applied in healthcare, I invited Dr. John Reeves to come share some insights.
Dr. Reeves is a global expert in the application of conversational AI to healthcare. He has over 25 years of experience as an engineer, primary care physician, and entrepreneur. He’s the CEO and founder of ConversationHealth, which is transforming how life sciences companies engage their patients and healthcare professionals through virtual conversations. Their company has developed a Pharma-specific SaaS platform that powers these human-like experiences across text, voice, and digital human channels, and he’s here to discuss some top tips about what companies should be thinking about when it comes to developing a chatbot solution of their own.
John and his team put together a download we’re going to discuss – and I just want to remind you that the download and links to everything we discuss can be found in the show notes of your podcast player and at our website at digitalhealthtoday.com/podcasts.
You can also find everything at our second home on Health Podcast Network on healthpodcastnetwork.com – along with hundreds of great episodes from outstanding podcasts across healthcare. Be sure to check that out.
