Even before the era of social distancing, the senior living industry had been experimenting with voice-first technologies. Besides the obvious benefit of reducing social isolation, applications now in the marketplace include medication reminders, personal emergency response, digital transcription, and healthcare information assistance. How far can senior living take this technology, and what is the benefit to seniors as a result? Already, voice is viewed as a biomarker for medical conditions. Multi-factor voice authentication can help in care coordination. This panel, moderated by a tech industry veteran and elder care advocate, will provide you with an overview of the possibilities and very real benefits to seniors in any environment.
