Ava healthcare assistant reviews a patient’s demographics, medical history, and biotelemetry to personalize how it communicates to each individual person, reports MedGadget. It uses machine learning to enable patients to interact, ask questions, and receive tailored responses, while following strict security and adherence to patient privacy regulations. The company reports that Ava has already facilitated 660,000 health alerts and three million device readings.

“When we developed Ava, we considered the fact that seniors are not only less tech savvy, but also less trusting of new technologies. Ava is remarkable because it leverages machine learning to personify the staff at a physician practice, providing a truly personal touchpoint. This is important because we know that these patients are more responsive to direct physician advice and the technology comes across as a member of the practice. Ava also works through SMS and doesn’t require an app or internet service,” Ryan Howard, CEO of 100Plus told MedGadget’s Conn Hastings in an interview.
