We found that online scheduling for doctor appointments have resulted in low patient retention* and **high drop-off rates. This is a pertinent problem to address as online scheduling is important for the medical industry for two main reasons. First, the modern era and quest for automation in medicine are increasingly leading to online appointment scheduling for patients. Second, scheduling support, physician engagement, and appropriate patient expectations are crucial to a successful online scheduling process.
What it does
Our solution reduces appointment cancellations in the US by creating a photorealistic AI Avatar of the Doctor from each clinic, who will remind each patient to schedule an appointment, book it, and remind them of the next steps after through Alethea AI's text-to-animation API.
How we built it
We used Alethea's API to build our solution to create photorealistic avatars of a doctor & nurse to simulate Alethea API's ability to recreate the likeness of a medical health team and bring them to life through dialogue.
Challenges we ran into
There is always room for improvement for the photorealism of characters, and voice data extracted from google cloud can be more human.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Timeliness of Alethea's API in generating high fidelity outputs of the nurse and doctor avatar.
What we learned
We learned that the future of personal media is here. Today’s personalization leaders have found proven ways to drive 5 to 15 percent increases in revenue and 10 to 30 percent increases in marketing spend efficiency by deploying triggered communications within singular channels. We feel that Alethea's API will be equipped to do just that.
What's next for Transforming the patient experience through synthetic media
We hope to provide hyper-personalization through synthetic media APIs that can be utilized by patients to "reimagine" their self-image as healthier people. As our population gets more and more diverse, keeping people healthy will increasingly depend on how well healthcare systems understand and address diverse populations. Hyper-personalization has proven to be important for the medical industry to fill that gap.
