AI telehealth technology: The first line of defence
The future of telemedicine using AI (Artificial Intelligence). AI has the potential to transform telemedicine into full service virtual medical clinics, where a virtual physician is able to gain access to accurate patient clinical data, allowing them to make a decision about the next step of their care – all without ever seeing the patient face to face.
Telemedicine is accessible, fast, efficient, and cost effective. With AI telehealth technology, it becomes an accurate first choice medical solution for patients everywhere and a first line of defence in the journey of improving health outcomes.
Our remote diagnostics solution uses AI to enable patients to keep track of their vital signs, and relay that information to their telemedicine physician in real time. The telemedicine physician will have all the important information available in front of them, allowing them to make life saving decisions in an informed way.
AI telehealth technology saving lives in Covid-19
Patients with Covid-19 symptoms are encouraged to isolate, yet many need urgent medical attention. Telemedicine is the best way for many isolating patients to assess whether they need more care.
Covid-19 symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and more, all of which can be assessed through a patient’s vital signs. Our technology measures heart rate, heart rate variability, respiration rate, and oxygen saturation levels through a smartphone camera, allowing us to identify Covid-19 patients quickly and safely via telemedicine. The sooner a virtual physician can identify a patient in need of urgent care, the sooner they can get physical healthcare providers to their aid, and even save their life.
How AI works in telemedicine
As more and more doctors are taking consultations via phone or video call, they lose both face to face markers and diagnostic tools – effectively they go in blind. They have to rely on information from the patient or from what they can observe visually and audibly via a phone line or computer screen.
Our technology gives them a head start. We can measure their vital signs at any time, including while on the call, and send the data directly to their virtual physician during the consultation. The physician then uses this data to make an informed decision about the patient’s health at that very moment, and determine the best next steps.
