WellBe, HandsFree Health’s Voice Assistant Platform

This patent further complements the HIPAA-compliant, proprietary product offerings for the healthcare market which include a voice assistant, mobile applications and wearable devices. The voice assistant market is growing rapidly and by 2021, the number of US voice assistant users will reach 122.7 million, representing 42.2% of US internet users and 36.6% of the US population. 

“While Americans are social distancing, we are struggling with how to help keep loved ones healthy and happy when we cannot be physically near them,” said Mike Cardillo, Co-Founder and President, HandsFree Health. “Our technology helps to minimize disruptions to healthcare while also providing the entertainment of a voice assistant to help relieve anxiety, especially among older or isolated populations.”

The patent will enable remote universal registration and setup and continuous updates for consumers, employers, and health plans with the HandsFree Health platform. As more employees are working from home and more consumers are staying at home, voice technology can help improve health outcomes in a home environment.

“The home is the “front door” of healthcare and now, more than ever, we need to access health and wellness resources within the home,” said Dan Messina, Co-Founder, HandsFree Health. “Reliable information paired with innovative health technology can promote adherence.”
