Samsung, IntelliTek Health partner on healthcare virtual assistant

Samsung has partnered with developer of patient-facing virtual assistant tools IntelliTek Health to bring artificial intelligence and digital voice assistance to the post-discharge process. 

Under the partnership, IntelliTek will work with Samsung Mobile Solutions to bring its AI solution, dubbed IntelliTek Health's Personal Virtual Assistant, to improve communication with patients after discharge, according to a Jan. 24 release from IntelliTek. 

The tablet-based solution uses voice assistance to communicate post-discharge instructions and other information to patients after they are discharged from the hospital.  

"Every year, approximately 36 million discharges occur across the U.S. healthcare system, with the majority of patients left alone to handle their care journey post-discharge," Martyn Molnar, global healthcare lead and products CEO at SmarTek21, IntelliTek's parent company, said in the press release. "Our collaboration with Samsung will help us address the significant health inequity in this space with Samsung Mobile Solutions and connectivity that offer simple, personalized medical communication and instruction between patients and their care teams in the critical window after leaving the hospital."
