Meet Suki, The Siri For Healthcare | Incident Report 217

What if we had an invisible, Alexa-like assistant that functioned like a medical intern, doing the scut and freeing us to be present for our patients? Punit Soni, founder and CEO of Suki, is building exactly that.

In this episode we discuss how technology can actually enable the human relationship that’s been lost in healthcare. We talk about the challenges and opportunities of having a voice-activated AI that empowers rather than obstructs. Would you let it into your exam room? After talking to Punit and seeing the demo, I have little doubt that the future of Health 3.0 is gonna be bright (with only a 30% risk of robot apocalypse).

Health care in danger: The human cost

The law says hospitals, ambulances and health-care workers must be protected and should never be targeted as they carry out their regular duties. This is often far from the reality. Worldwide, the lack of safe access to health care is causing untold suffering to millions of people.

Through the voices of doctors, nurses, ambulance drivers and patients, this film shows the human cost of violence against health-care workers and facilities. It also highlights how medical, military and humanitarian organisations are coming together to find new approaches and new solutions.

“One of the first victims of war is the health-care system itself.” Marco Baldan, War Surgeon, ICRC
