For most nurses, their primary role and motivation is to advocate for patients, care for individuals, and support people through health and illness. Yet 30% of their time is spent on routine tasks, many of which can be addressed through technology. With the number of nurses leaving the workforce each year growing steadily — from around 40,000 in 2010 to nearly 80,000 by 2020 — implementing new technologies now could lower the burden on nurses while improving the overall quality of patient care.

Carisa Raucci from Diligent Robotics is working to be part of that solution. She and her team develop robots that are designed to support and work together with clinical teams so they can focus on caring for patients. In this quick session, Carisa will give you a peek at “Moxi,” a socially intelligent robot that can aid nurses without making humans feel uncomfortable.
