Aculab Cloud for healthcare applications
Aculab Cloud, our communications platform-as-a-service (CPaaS), has been received well by developer customers who serve the healthcare market. With its high-level APIs and pay for what you use approach, it provides a simple, cost-effective means to send and receive voice, fax and SMS messages.
Specific healthcare related applications supported:
- Appointment reminders
- Post-visit surveys
- No-show callbacks
- Notifications to patients on a one-to-one or one-to-many basis:
- Reminders to patients to take prescribed medicines
- Annual health check reminders
- Announcements of e.g., a flu jab service running at a particular practice
In addition, our cloud platform has a key advantage in that it supports the sending and receiving of fax transmissions, which are still heavily used to securely transfer medical records.
A new feature we’ve been working on for a while is speech recognition. We have already made this feature available to complement the IVR functionality we support, enabling a voice-driven IVR to be built. This earlier blog post gives detail of that.
In addition, the use of voice and speech recognition in a clinical environment is something we are working on. We believe our telephone-based system to collect data from patients with speech disorders could revolutionise the way speech and language therapists work.
