Inside VOICE


So you've been practicing medicine for about about fifteen years. What got you interested in medicine in the first place so I come from a medical family and my parents positions and almost half? I say half of my family are in the medical field They're pretty much all. We joke that we could probably make our own. HMO PPO it was just kind of like growing family it it was more like this is pretty much what it was kind of expected but at the same time it was something I did find interest in helping people and also science ensue also education just kind of being teacher on the oldest brother and so that came naturally to me kind of guiding and teaching the younger generation. That's kind of on my passions too. I I love that and I had found on twitter because I saw you had posted a video with your son using voice technology and I wanted to share your story A. and your son has a why can you tell us about what that is and what his struggles are and how voice is helping him live a better life. Yeah exactly so for those. That don't know Hawaii are genesis and Perfecta is it's basically it's commonly referred to as brittle bone disease which causes have bones to fracture with minimal all to no trauma but it's really more of a structural kind of connective. Tissue problems really affects multiple areas of his health. So one of the things that ah very passionate about is educating the general medical public about his condition so rare even the medical community doesn't even I didn't see much of diagnosed with it and one of the things that we found that was very helpful as certain monitoring technology especially things like boys technology so one of the things that it does help is is for example with it can affect physical tippy falls or pressures we have like a lot of like we speakers Smarter Sin Speakers in the home so if he falls being it's help you can kind kind of communicate through that way another way like to kind of turn on rooms like light sir appliance like things that are turn off the lights or just kind of help because he has uh-huh shorter stature but this kind of helps her those kind of had to be adopted those kinds of situations and I know you personally. You're co-founder have also created to voice. We skills can you tell us about them in where the idea came from and what they're about one of the things that I also do as a family doctors. I teach medical students. The University of Cincinnati in University Kentucky Person Secure Medical Soon so and one of my co founders also teaches medical students while hand one of the things that were. We're very passionate medical education and this came about from actually kind of hanging out with my son one day he was actually doing a skill on Alexa where he was just asking. State capitals battles. I got the idea of Lexicon Athletes State capitals. I wonder if you could do that. For more complex new learning material like medical board questions and medical exam damn questions so we got looking into that and we ask that question we started kind of looking for some developers a couple of years ago bound developer team out in California which actually turned out being from the same hometown as my co founder and Secretary Brown and wake up Eventually long story short of last year near and a half we created the first goal was met Westcote so basically medical test exam questioning or medical Ford questions medical exams and we're also in the process of creating like dental exams exams rushing banks and a third one is also an underproduction while and so do you have people using this. What has been their feedback? Has It helped them pass the exam. What's Kinda been the feedback in the success? So far right so it's really early. We haven't really start like we just kinda released April. We are just kind of doing the final kind of quality. Ali checks this week actually and now the board exam prep season is going to be start going into high gear over the next three or four months. This is why we're going to start really kind of marketing at more and Kind of promoting medical schools. But we've shown it's a medical students and so we've had good positive response to it so far so it's still very early in the process but this is kind of. We're relying the foundation over the next couple years. Did you find that this also came from the Axa medical students were meeting this that they needed someone to ask them questions. Send that and help them. Maybe comprehend certain things better. Yeah this is more from the medical students biggest problems that we're solving with medical suances. They have they have no time under a lot of stress and they're also have like a lot of financial. Couple is one of the things that we want to do. It was were marking is like the supplement during downtime to save them time like so. It's not a primary learnings where it's more supplemental thing like in the car or taking the dog for a walk or kind of doing the laundry or preparing dinner so it's Kinda like get those couple of extra questions and the other thing is also it's using the voice. Instead of like a lot of times students day they get like is there in front of screens screens all day. So this kind of let's do other things and not gonna like one of my co-founder said one of the big things for him. When News Time per boards was his eyes got really tired strains certain kinds of rest there is this allows them to connor? Restaurant do other things than study at the same time. So it's it's kind of that. Marketing has basically to do it during down sometime to save some time crushes learning on the golf basically.
