Mike on Medtech: Voice-Enabled Medtech

Sean Fenske and Mike Drues discuss voice-enabled medtech and its potential in healthcare.

By Sean Fenske, Editor-in-Chief05.17.18
In this episode of Mike on Medtech with Mike Drues, president of Vascular Sciences, we discuss my lastest Editor’s Letter that appeared in the May issue of MPO, The Power of My Voice (click to read that Letter). In it, I provide my own opinions on the technology, how it’s being used in medical devices, and how it could potentially be used for healthcare in the future. I also offer an example of a partnership between the Mayo Clinic and an Israeli company, Beyond Verbal, where voice-enabled technology is being tested as a diagnostic tool for coronary artery disease. I don’t, however, get into the regulatory concerns and potential pitfalls of voice-enabled technology so we discussed it on this episode of Mike on Medtech. Sharing his own thoughts on this topic, Mike Drues delves into the FDA’s oversight of voice-enabled medical devices and how they are treated.

Listen to this episode and see if it gets you thinking of other ways voice-enabled technology could be implemented within the healthcare space. Or perhaps you’re exploring its use within a development project. In either case, If you’d like to share thoughts and comments with us or have questions on the topic, please reach out to me with them at sfenske@rodmanmedia.com so I can perhaps discuss them with Mike in an upcoming episode.
