Care.ai: Autonomous Patient Monitoring

Recording | More information

With autonomous monitoring, hospitals can achieve patient care and infection control goals for all patients. Care.ai has developed a contactless temperature screening tool that quickly and easily scans every person who comes into a facility for an elevated temperature - one of the most common symptoms of COVID-19 and can be an indicator of the need for additional screening and testing. The point-of-entry screening gives hospitals tools to safely identify potentially infectious patients and take appropriate actions.

The Care.ai autonomous monitoring platform can also used to create "self aware" patient rooms that can detect changes or variations in patient status or lack of movement and alert staff of the need to intervene. With autonomous patient monitoring, staff can conserve personal protective equipment and minimize potential infection exposure while ensuring patients get all the care they need.
