The API-first platform is designed to integrate with existing solutions to enhance a users’ experience and improve clinical outcomes. Partners can also configure the Canary Speech app to capture additional data points in addition to the voice recording / analysis. One way Microsoft customers can easily access and scale Canary AI vocal insights is through its integration with Microsoft Teams .

“Canary Speech continues to pioneer the path in creating, validating and commercializing speech-as-a-biomarker in a way that is transformative for patients and clinicians,” said Henry O’Connell, co-founder and CEO of Canary Speech, of the newly formed collaboration. “We believe that Microsoft’s world-class cloud infrastructure and global reach and scale, combined with our ML and AI expertise, creates truly next generation solutions.”

Microsoft Cloud for Healthcare provides trusted and integrated capabilities, connectors, workflows, data and AI models that make it easier for organizations to create personalized patient and member experiences, accelerate data driven decision-making, empower health teams with connected and secure productivity tools, and adopts data standards that are important to healthcare.

“AI is helping to empower healthcare providers by automating tasks, transforming unstructured forms of data into structured formats, gleaning patient insights, and supporting clinicians in delivering personalized patient care,” said David Rhew, M.D., Global Chief Medical Officer and Vice President of Healthcare, Microsoft. “Canary Speech is applying AI to enable voice to serve as a biometric, which could potentially aid in the screening and monitoring of medical conditions. We are pleased to work with Canary to help transform care through AI technology that can make a positive impact on the industry and patient outcomes.”

Canary’s patented technology offers a novel method for capturing and analyzing critical data. This approach involves using AI and machine learning techniques to examine speech features known as “biomarkers.” By replacing subjective behavioral health measurements with a more standardized and objective approach, this technology can comprehensively measure an array of data points.
