Virtual therapeutics, voice recognition and fast-evolving artificial intelligence tools are transforming home-based care, says Robin Farmanfarmaian, co-author of the new book How AI Can Democratize Healthcare.

Remote patient monitoring and other forms of virtual care are fast finding footholds in healthcare as patients get acquainted with these new care modalities, and as health systems learn to appreciate the cost efficiencies they offer.

But telehealth and RPM are still in their early days, and fast-changing as they're augmented with other new and emerging digital health and artificial intelligence technologies.

Robin Farmanfarmaian, a longtime Silicon Valley entrepreneur and co-author of the new book, How AI Can Democratize Healthcare, joined us recently to discuss how the growing momentum toward home-based care is being impacted by leading-edge innovations such as natural language processing, digital therapeutics and more.
