Thanks to a new partnership with Omron Healthcare, Amazon Alexa has a new skill that lets patients monitor their blood pressure at home with a simple voice command. Pairing with Omron's blood pressure monitors, via a mobile app, Alexa will now be able to provide accurate information on blood pressure statistics, as well as reminders, average daily blood pressure readings, and flags for higher readings.
This new Alexa skill and partnership with Omron Healthcare is just one of a dozen initiatives designed to make the voice assistant an important tool regarding the future of healthcare. This skill also showcases how voice assistants are becoming more integrated into regular society and how they help make things easier for those already having to deal with medical concerns.
