Navia Life Care, a healthcare technology startup launches Navi - voice-based virtual assistant for doctors. Navi is a virtual assistant application that can understand voice commands and complete tasks for a user. The usability offered by Navi through a single click system. It creates and completes a digital prescription for the patient which can be printed or sent via an SMS. Thus making it not only a mere passive listening device that will respond once it recognizes a command but also record and analyze both the doctor’s behaviour and the patient’s medical history.
Kunal Kishore Dhawan, Co-founder, and CEO of Navia said, “Navi will be helping doctors create digital prescriptions through a speech-to-text engine, converting voice inputs into structured prescriptions. And this is going to make Navi an innovative, useful and accessible means to strengthen the doctor-patient bond in India.”
Besides, using a unique algorithm it shall also predict possible remodification, diagnosis, medication schedules and investigations for patients, thus recommending them to doctors. World Health Organization reports that by 2035, the global health care shortage is expected to reach close to 13 million which signifies health care providers will be in high demand across the world. This clearly indicates that health service providers will be pushed to their limits in order to render service.
Navia Life Care is working on making Navi into an Alexa for doctors, encompassing all possible tasks that they need to do in order to 'augment' and enhance their practice, all through the power of voice. Doctors shall reap immense benefits from Navi. They no longer have to maintain a detailed medical record with detailed notes about prospective courses of action from previous visits of patients. They will now be able to use their time effectively resulting in reduced chances for errors.
Dhawan further added, “For a typed prescription, it takes anywhere between 45 seconds to 2 minutes, whereas by using Navi – the voice-based assistant, this time is reduced to less than 1 minute per prescription. Thus, with Navi, doctors will be able to use their time effectively with reduced chances for errors.”
Navi will be administering treatments by saving time, resources, energy and lives. The usability index offered by Navi via a single click system and be easily accessed from any smartphones. One just needs to install Navia’s doctor App.
