Cedars-Sinai to equip 100 rooms with Alexa-powered platform
Becker's Hospital Review

A pilot program in over 100 patient rooms at Los Angeles-based Cedars-Sinai lets patients use an Alexa-powered platform called Aiva to interact with nurses and control their entertainment.

Aiva is the world’s first patient-centered voice assistant platform for hospitals and allows patients to have hands-free interactions with their care team.

For the pilot program, patient rooms are equipped with Amazon Echos, and patients can tell the device what they need. Patients can turn their TV off and on and change channels by giving verbal commands like, “Alexa, change the channel to ESPN.”
