Hello  ,

Over the past six months, Team Orbita has had the distinct privilege of working with many individuals and organizations involved with Pulse@MassChallenge. Next Tuesday, we'll celebrate our collective advances in digital health innovation at Pulse Finale where more than $200,000 in no-strings attached prizes will be awarded. Tickets are still available

Seven organizations -- including leading healthcare entities in provider, payor, pharma, biotech and IT -- invited Orbita to collaborate on an array of projects which will likely yield some of the earliest, most innovative uses for voice technologies in healthcare. We're now engaged in project scoping and application development.

In conjunction with our Pulse@MassChallenge involvement, check out the following:

  • Orbita will exhibit in the Emerging Innovators Zone at BIO International, June 4-7 in Boston. Want to meet with us there? Contact
  • This week, AARP announced its collaboration with Orbita as well as two fellow Pulse startups, Pillo Health and Folia. Our work will focus on the effectiveness of AI-driven voice applications to improve remote patient monitoring and reduce social isolation. Read news release here
  • Thanks to a PULSE colleague who shared this summary of a research report on the global smart home healthcare market which generated $4.5 billion revenue in 2017 with a projected CAGR of 37.3% through 2023. Voice will play a major role!
