To help alleviate roughly 30% of the tasks that nurses do (those that do not involve patient interaction) Austin’s Diligent Robotics have designed and built Moxi the robot. Moxi has now entered the workforce at a few Texas hospitals. There, the robot connects to each hospital’s electronic health record system and can be pre-programmed for several errands. Perhaps unsurprisingly, Moxi has also impacted patients directly, who have sought out various interactions. Read more about Moxi at Fast Company.
