Livongo and Amazon have partnered to offer the Livongo skill for Alexa, which will provide personalized insight on diabetes management.
The first digital health company to collaborate with Amazon on a new HIPAA-compliant health skill for Alexa, the Livongo skill will allow users to access their recent glucose readings and receive health tips based on their results. Because voice communication is very natural, the developers believe the Alexa voice-based interface will help encourage compliance and better health maintenance.
According to Livongo president, Dr. Jennifer Schneider, "Our Members now have the ability to hear their last blood glucose check by simply asking Alexa. In providing seamless health insights while our Members are preparing meals or about to exercise, Livongo can more effectively drive positive behavior change."
