Amazon says using the devices in healthcare could mean staff don’t need to enter patients’ rooms unnecessarily, enabling them to “increase productivity, be able to give more personalized care in a triage type manner , conserve medical supplies and protective equipment and free up staff time to provide more personalized care.” The addition of these devices could be a real game changer in Healthcare. The hospitals will use Amazon’s Alexa Smart Properties system from next month. Let's see how this works out!
