Read more about these new features in our news release

orbita awardWe're extremely appreciative of commentary about our technology from John Nosta who, as president of the NostaLab think tank, is generally regarded as one of the top strategic thinkers and global influencers in digital health:

"Orbita continues to astound with their innovation in voice-first digital healthcare," Nosta said. "Voice is poised to bring transformational change to healthcare and Orbita is clearly leading the charge."

This news comes on the heels of HIMSS, a powerhouse event that annually draws more than 40,000 health IT professionals. We enjoyed meeting and talking with several of you who are now reading this. Thank you for your interest. Check out the summary of Orbita at HIMSS below - including exciting news about engagements with Mayo Clinic and Deloitte. And, we extend sincere thanks to a panel of esteemed judges who honored us with the Intelligent Health Assocation Voice Technology Award! 

This month, be sure to attend our webinar which we've titled Considering Voice and Chatbots? Plan for Enterprise. You'll come away with keen insights into the reason today's most strategically savvy entities think "enterprise" when they think "voice."

Thank you for reading and best wishes as we "finally" move into Spring!
