Healthcare advancements meet text-to-speech technology
Healthcare is a trillion dollar industry worldwide. With so many investments in time and money, coupled with the tremendous responsibility of managing, aiding, and saving lives, it’s no wonder that one of healthcare’s greatest areas of focus is selecting the most effective new technologies to support cost-saving measures, increase efficiency, and provide better access to care. At the end of the day, it’s crucial that technological advances improve patient outcomes.
ReadSpeaker’s text-to-speech solutions assist with healthcare’s mission of bettering patient care through the use of assistive, digital tools. Our audio tools not only help healthcare providers in a variety of areas, but also improve accessibility for patients in healthcare facilities and within their homes.
Automate your patients’ appointment reminders. Personalizing and scheduling outbound calls with reminders about upcoming appointments, your clinic’s address and cancellation policy, etc. will increase efficiency and patient satisfaction, reduce operational costs and no-shows, and lead to better overall scheduling management.
Pharmacies can also benefit from automation. Create an easily navigable menu of options accessed via phone containing information like address and hours, fax number, and available services, and give patients the ability to refill their prescriptions through your automated system and pick up at a time that’s convenient for them.
Labels are not very user-friendly to those with reading difficulties, the elderly, and the visually impaired. Utilize ReadSpeaker’s technology and have a talking label sent straight to your patient’s device; the audio recording, which can be played back at any point, will inform patients about specific prescription instructions, dosage information, contraindications, etc., and can also be shared with caregivers.
Use text to speech when sending in prescriptions. Healthcare providers find that adding an audio readback component to electronic prescribing increases accuracy and proficiency and also eliminates errors.
Health trackers are ideal tools for incorporating text to speech. Allow your patients to receive voice alerts from their blood glucose meters and heart rate and blood pressure monitoring equipment as changes occur or as they complete routine checks.
In critical moments, medical devices can benefit greatly from having voice capabilities. From issuing step-by-step audio instructions on how to use a life-saving AED machine to instructing medical personnel on how to assemble complicated surgical devices to enabling hospital patients to call for a nurse, text-to-speech embedded devices combine intelligent design with methods that enhance efficiency.
This industry is booming and parallel to the healthcare sector. Numerous popular lifestyle-oriented products and services have recently become widespread, including those designed to support smoking cessation, promote healthy lifestyles through sports and fitness, healthy eating, etc. ReadSpeaker text-to-speech voices installed in virtual coach apps can encourage people to exercise, stay hydrated, meditate, take medications and supplements, and more.
The use of robots in healthcare is becoming increasingly common. Surgical and telemedicine robots are already being utilized in hospitals and clinics worldwide and other types of healthcare robots who perform tasks like delivering items to patients and serving as around-the-clock guardians are also proving useful in the field.
Healthcare, with its difficult medical jargon, can be intimidating, especially for audiences with learning and physical disabilities, literacy difficulties, and second-language challenges and those who are part of the growing senior population. Utilizing text to speech within your healthcare organization’s web and mobile content will help increase your patients’ understanding of complex medical topics. ReadSpeaker has the solutions to support your efforts towards improved patient accessibility.
