About Logos Health

What do I need to use Logos Health?
The recommended technology includes the Amazon Echo for voice entry and a smart phone (Android or Apple).  You will also need an Amazon account (also needed for Echo) for logging into Logos Health.
When will Logos Health be available?
The Beta was released for testing in Q4 2019. 
What about other technologies?
Voice devices like Google Home and Apple Siri may be considered in future releases as markets dictate.
Isn't voice as a user interface just a gimmick?

On the contrary, Logos Health believes that voice is the easiest, most effective way to enter data when done well.  We are and will continue to strive to be on the cutting edge of leveraging voice technology.

Once available, you will see how voice recognition and phone calls through the Echo improve user identification and experience.
