About TeleHealth Assistant
Telehealth continues to gain traction within the industry. The Telehealth Assistant is a prototype of a telemedicine solution built on top of standard RTSP protocol, that then uses IBM Watson’s speech to text recognition to recognize the doctor/patient conversation for easy record keeping and further analysis. Then the conversation is analyzed by Health Navigator’s Natural Language Processing engine to identify core complaints of the patient. This information is later used to identify acuity of the problem, provide a list of follow-up questions for better diagnosis and automatically build encounter report for EHR synchronization. Streamlining data entry for doctors relieves them of their tedious manual work and brings all the focus on the patient, essentially leading to better patient outcomes.
