Good News Monday: Helping Nurses Help Others

Nurses become nurses to help people. But they can spend up to 30% of their time on unsatisfying tasks that don’t involve seeing patients, such as delivering lab samples and gathering supplies.

Now, a robot named Moxi proposes to change that.  Designed to be socially intelligent,  Moxi debuted at Texas hospitals in September 2018. The robot features an expressive face with an arm, hand, and four wheeled base, and can use its hand to pick up medical supplies and deliver them to nurses or doctors; remove bags of soiled linen; and bring samples to on-site labs. This helps hospitals manage their workflow and frees up more staff time for patient care.

A.I. programming even allows Moxi to learn from human teachers. Someone, please teach it to cook appetizing hospital meals!
