“The traditional way in which families and patients inquire about healthcare services is not sustainable. Families are forced to sacrifice crucial time – a majority of that time being spent on hold – just to receive a response. On the other side of the phone are our healthcare providers, who are unable to instantly and efficiently assist callers without wait times.
"The industry is in desperate need of innovation,” Rebecca Clyde, founder and CEO of Botco.ai, said in a statement. “As we innovate Botco.ai, our mission is to not only ensure that families can more easily manage critical care without long waits and cumbersome systems, but also assist healthcare professionals in providing instant responses to those in need.”
