The coronavirus pandemic has tested public health systems globally. Few novel and infectious diseases around the world have ever posed such dramatic challenges as the novel coronavirus SARS-CoV-2, which causes COVID-19. With highly efficient human-to-human transmission and high mortality rates, COVID19 led the World Health Organization to declare a public health emergency of international concern and caused countries around the world to reassess their public health capabilities. The United Arab Emirates, like other members of the international community, faced the unprecedented challenge of ensuring public health and safety while minimizing economic fallout. These efforts by the U.A.E.'s leadership allowed the U.A.E. to be globally ranked as one of the top countries, and the highest in the Arab world, in terms of its COVID-19 response.

Kalendar AI wants its sales bots to win your next customers – TechCrunch

#artificialintelligence

Kalendar AI, a San Francisco-based startup that's been building on top of GPT-3's language model -- developing a SaaS for automating lead generation and sales outreach to make it easier for companies to get initial meetings with prospective customers -- has raised $3.2 million in pre-seed funding from 500 Startups; The Lean Startup author, Eric Ries; VC firms Village Global and Metaplanet; and 20 angel investors (including CEOs of "popular" but undisclosed companies). "Our AI technology writes personalized invitations to ideal customers with personalized decks -- inviting them to take a meeting," explains founder and CEO Ravi Vadrevu. The SaaS was launched in February this year, although the startup itself -- which is called Kriya Inc -- was founded back in 2017 and had been bootstrapping prior to raising this pre-seed. The idea for the b2b product is to automate the time-consuming and expensive process of sales outreach, including locating and pitching leads, as well as to offer tools to streamline and enhance initial sales meetings. Kalendar AI claims to have amassed a database of 340M "ideal customer profiles" upon which it unleashes its AI sales rep bots to send "personalized" pitches (including "interactive presentations that convert into one-click meetings") to likely looking customers. "Our solution brings down the time to initiate a conversation to book an appointment from 7 days to 30 seconds from a sales perspective," claims Vadrevu, who also argues there are big productivity wins from a marketing perspective vs other channels.


Voice-only telehealth might go away with pandemic rules set to expire

NPR Technology

Community clinics say the easing of restrictions on telehealth during the pandemic has made it possible for health workers to connect with hard-to-reach patients via a phone call -- people who are poor, elderly or live in remote areas, and don't have access to a computer or cell phone with video capability. Community clinics say the easing of restrictions on telehealth during the pandemic has made it possible for health workers to connect with hard-to-reach patients via a phone call -- people who are poor, elderly or live in remote areas, and don't have access to a computer or cell phone with video capability. Caswell County, where William Crumpton works, runs along the northern edge of North Carolina and is a rural landscape of mostly former tobacco farms and the occasional fast-food restaurant. "There are wide areas where cell phone signals are just nonexistent," Crumpton says. "Things like satellite radio are even a challenge."


Startups eye post-pandemic 'telehealth' revolution

The Japan Times

From mental health apps to a helmet that can shock a patient's brain remotely, startups at this year's Web Summit are betting on a major shift toward "telemedicine" as the world emerges from the pandemic. Using technology to treat patients virtually was a major theme at one of the world's largest tech conferences, which returned to Lisbon, Portugal, last week after COVID-19 forced it to move online in 2020. "These days, most people use their phones for a lot of everyday needs -- why shouldn't health care be part of this?" said Johannes Schildt, whose company Kry lets patients book on-screen medical appointments. "The pandemic has accelerated adoption of these new technologies," Schildt said. Sweden-based Kry, which operates in five European countries, is far from the only app designed to do away with the need to physically visit a doctor.

Benefits of Artificial Intelligence in Healthcare You Should Know About

#artificialintelligence

The sheer amount of data needed to make consistently accurate medical diagnoses is staggering. That's why many healthcare organizations are adopting artificial intelligence to improve decision-making and make nearly every aspect of running a practice easier and more efficient. According to Gartner, "The AI/smart machine era will be the most disruptive in the history of IT. … Eventually, these advances will redefine what it means to be a physician and a patient." Whether it's using machine learning to help with diagnoses or automation tools to communicate with patients, artificial intelligence can streamline medical processes so you have more time to focus on what's important: helping your patients. If you have never considered using artificial intelligence for your practice, don't trust artificial intelligence, or think your patients might not trust artificial intelligence, it's time to reconsider. A recent Software Advice survey* demonstrates that most patients trust the application of artificial intelligence in healthcare.
