EPIC Ehealth – Using Smart Speakers in Social Care

Friday March 15 @ 12:00 PM - 4:30 PM

We would love for you to attend our afternoon event on the 15th of March exploring the use of ‘smart speakers’ (Alexa/Google Home etc) in social care environments. We will be discussing the potential to use these cost effective consumer devices in a number of ways:

  • Reminders for treatment or medication prompts
  • As an interface to community resources such as Cornwall Link
  • As a means of video communication with healthcare practitioners, family and friends
  • Enabling interaction with age appropriate media, e.g. sound media suitable for their age/interests
  • We are delighted to present three speakers from pioneer areas in the use of Alexa; Hampshire, Oxfordshire, and Wales, who will share their experiences of their use of Alexa within social care environments.
