Top Quotes
"Voice is going to be the next vital sign" (Dr. Teri Fisher on The Happy Doc)
"When we use the voice assistant in the home, it can start to provide you with care in your home. It can provide you the right time for your care, acting as a triage nurse in your home. It can also give you guidance on where the right place would be to go, almost like a tour guide. This is all happening in your home, personalized, decentralized medicine. If you expand that and imagine how that will grow and explode, in communities and society... the more people get [these] devices, they now have their own personal healthcare providers, triage nurse/tour guide. The pressure on the healthcare system can now ease " (Dr. Teri Fisher on The Happy Doc)
