Thought Leaders Will Discuss Key Issues And Trends Amidst Rapid Emergence Of Voice And Conversational Applications In Healthcare At VOICE Summit, July 22-25

NEWARK, N.J., July 22, 2019 /PRNewswire/ —

Orbita executives will join digital health thought leaders from leading organizations to discuss mounting pressures facing the healthcare industry as well as new opportunities to address these challenges with chat, voice, virtual assistants and conversational AI.


  1. Chronic diseases account for 85% of healthcare costs; consistent patient engagement outside of healthcare facilities is needed to reduce these costs
  2. 47% of patients who visited a hospital for emergency or urgent care did so because they didn’t know where else to get care
  3. Reimbursement is radically shifting  with the advent of bundled payments and value-based care
  4. 54% of millennials and 24% of baby boomers changed providers in the past year

“Healthcare organizations have significant opportunity to address cost pressures and increased consumer expectations by digitally engaging with patients beyond brick & mortar walls.  Voice assistants are now accessible through 2.5 billion smartphones globally. Conversational AI is now being used to improve consumer services and organizations will rely on voice to coordinate and deliver care in new, cost-effective ways that are seamless, multimodal, and natural to the populations they serve.”
– Orbita CEO and Co-founder Bill Rogers

Several Orbita colleagues will attend – from organizations such as Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Mayo Clinic, Philips, Wolters Kluwer, Johnson & Johnson, Merck and Deloitte. Interviews available on request.
