RSM webinar: Improving remote care by monitoring speech: Dr Yoram Levanon will describe the main concepts behind the use of vocal expression to gain insights into healthcare. He will present his vision of a future where remote care is enhanced by the continuous monitoring of speech to infer health status through AI-Human interactions.
This webinar will explore:
- How emotional and physiological disorders can give rise to distortions in vocal expression
- The potential for improving remote care through the monitoring of a patient’s interactions using machine learning to identify vocal markers of disease.
Chaired by Loy Lobo, President of the RSM Digital Health Council, join us for this interactive webinar, with plenty of opportunities to pose your questions to Dr Yoram Levanon.
Dr Yoram Levanon is the Chief Scientific Officer, Beyond Verbal Communications Ltd. Dr Yoram Levanon is a pioneer of the vocal analysis of emotions and health. Over the past 25 years he has developed novel approaches for gaining insights into health status from a patients’ vocal expression.
He was CEO and Chief Scientific Officer of several Israeli companies, making use of his rich background in physics, operations research, and multi-criteria decision making.
He has researched the emotional and physiological mechanisms behind vocal expressions and discovered speech distortions related to health problems such as Parkinson’s disease, autism, dyslexia and cardiovascular diseases, and has validated these findings in working with well known medical institutes in Israel. Most recently his techniques are being applied in a research study collecting voice profiles to diagnose COVID-19 early in the disease progression.
Dr Levanon will describe and present the main concepts of his future vision to use continuous monitoring of health status to improve remote care through AI-Human interactions.
A CPD certificate with 1 CPD credit will be issued to those joining the webinar live as well as those who watch the recording afterwards. Certificates will be issued 7 days after the webinar to those who watch it live and after 30 days for those that watch the recording.
