Canary Speech, Inc. announced that it will apply the power of artificial intelligence (AI) voice analysis technology to address a variety of mental health challenges and enable early intervention, reduce healthcare costs, and scale remote patient monitoring (RPM) solutions. As part of the collaboration, Canary Speech has become a Microsoft Cloud for Healthcare co-sell partner and will use Microsoft Azure as its cloud solution to extend its robust machine learning (ML) speech models to new customers.
The API-first platform is designed to integrate with existing solutions to enhance a users’ experience and improve clinical outcomes. Partners can also configure the Canary Speech app to capture additional data points in addition to the voice recording / analysis. One way Microsoft customers can easily access and scale Canary AI vocal insights is through its integration with Microsoft Teams.
