In the setting of the COVID-19 pandemic, hospitals face unprecedented capacity issues that threaten to undermine healthcare delivery for all patients. Further, the expansion of bed capacity into traditionally non-clinical areas like office space and field hospitals makes standard isolation precautions such as negative pressure rooms nearly impossible. There is an urgent need to enhance capacity and protect front-line healthcare workers with a cost effective, scalable remote patient monitoring system.
Whiteboard Coordinator has developed a computer vision-enhanced patient monitoring system in partnership with Northwestern Medicine and Microsoft Azure that allows a constellation of intelligent pan-tilt-zoom cameras to monitor multiple patients simultaneously. In addition, patients are able to communicate verbally with healthcare workers without a provider entering the room.
Whiteboard Coordinator, Inc. is a pioneer in the development of computer vision technologies for healthcare that preserve patient and clinician privacy in compliance with the Illinois Biometric Information Privacy Act.
