(Reuters) – Britain’s National Health Service will partner with Amazon to provide health information through the tech giant’s voice assistant Alexa, the country’s Department of Health and Social Care said here

The technology is aimed at helping patients – especially the elderly, blind and those unable to access the Internet through traditional means – to get NHS-verified health information quickly through voice commands.
