Voice Assistants like Siri and Alexa made natural language communication with machines commonplace. Electronic Health Record (EHR) users still struggle with inefficient user interface designs and extraneous keyboard clicks to navigate and find relevant patient information. Vanderbilt EHR Voice Assistant (VEVA) introduces a voice user interface for the EHR allowing users to request data aloud and receive spoken verbal summaries in return. Preliminary usability studies demonstrated positive acceptance of this new interface.
