CloudMinds and Vituity Announce Healthcare Collaboration
CloudMinds Technology, a developer and operator of cloud robotic solutions, and Vituity, a leading physician-led and-owned multispecialty partnership is proud to announce a new collaborative effort that uses cutting-edge technology, including AI and robotics, to deliver quick, easy and affordable healthcare.

With a goal of promoting patient recovery following a hospital stay and reducing readmissions, the solution includes intelligent and socially assistive support that can converse with and attend to patients discharged from the hospital. Use cases include reminding patients of follow-up appointments, performing a symptom check, or even discussing the weather.

Intelligent robotic solutions transform patient engagement by leveraging multiple conversation technologies to optimize interactions. Specifically, speech recognition allows the robot to hear what a patient says, Natural Language Processing (NLP) to understand it, and advanced dialog technology to respond. The best-of-breed strategy behind CloudMinds’ conversational platform incorporates the most advanced conversational and AI technologies from industry and academia. Vituity combines clinical excellence with business acumen to help healthcare organizations raise the standard of patient care and operational efficiency. With extensive experience delivering acute care across multiple specialties and across 14 states, Vituity is well positioned to help shape the expansion of CloudMinds Technology across the healthcare continuum. Vituity will provide integration into existing post-discharge procedures, testing to simulate patient interactions and patient access services, and insights into the challenges faced by physicians and post-discharge patients.

“Artificial intelligence is being applied in new ways across the customer engagement cycle in many industries, including healthcare. The technologies we are partnering on provide a preview of the future of post-hospital release healthcare. We are excited to collaborate with Vituity, a healthcare leader with a long-standing track record of innovation, on an AI service that can enhance the quality of care of patients,” said Bill Huang, CEO of CloudMinds Technology.

Vituity’s Chief Executive Officer, Imamu Tomlinson, MD, said “The healthcare industry needs new and innovative ways of lowering costs and providing more effective healthcare. Cloud robotics holds great promise for the future of patient care, and cost savings for this industry. We’re proud to leverage the outstanding capabilities of CloudMinds Technology as part of our dedication to leading the future of healthcare.”
