Alexa for Business Customers
“We deployed the first ever patient-facing Echo pilot program inside a pediatric hospital. We know voice is important to our patients and families and we want to learn about how they want to interact with it. We placed Echo Dots in patient waiting areas and encouraged users to engage with our Alexa skill, Flu Doctor, to get answers to commonly asked questions with the objective of helping increase flu vaccine rates. We leveraged Alexa for Business to provide us with the ability to monitor and set specific controls for our devices while delivering important back-end analytics to us.”
–Dr. Wendy Sue Swanson, Chief of Digital Innovation, Seattle Children's Hospital

"Hawaii Pacific Health, a not for profit healthcare system with four major hospitals and 70 clinics statewide, focuses on providing the highest quality healthcare. As part of that effort, Hawaii Pacific Health improves its patients’ in-room experience by eliminating outdated nurse-call buttons and replacing them with natural conversations with Alexa. Patients use their voice to direct and control their in-room amenities, entertainment choices and answers to many of their questions. As a first step, we created Kumu, an Alexa Q&A skill for new mothers, which answers the most commonly asked questions we get asked. We selected Alexa for Business to deploy this skill because we can easily scale deployment of this and other Alexa skills to all of our patient rooms and common areas as well as easily manage the Echo’s we’ve deployed on an ongoing basis."
