Ascension Technologies (AT) has created custom functionality for Alexa devices by Ascension senior living residents and acute care patients.  Alexa is a virtual assistant developed by Amazon.  It is capable of voice interaction, music playback, making to-do lists, setting alarms and reminders, and providing weather, news and sports updates. With the possibility of delaying cognitive impairment, lessoning anxiety, combatting loneliness and assisting with medication management, Alexa technology has the potential to impact health outcomes and help residents remain independent longer.  Empowering residents with this tool provides them with the added confidence as an older adult successfully aging.  The AT Alexa product is a true example of one of Ascension's core values, Reverence, and aligning with the commitment to the "respect and compassion for the dignity and diversity of life."  With this value proposition in mind, a business model of charging for the technology in the future will be carefully developed.
