Control Virus Spread and Hospital Demand Optimization
As the advance of COVID around the world unfolds, we felt the immediate need to see how we could contribute. We believe technology can become a deal-breaker in the way we face this global crisis, not only today but also as we rethink the future. We connected with our partners in Italy to put our technology at service to help work on this emergency situation.
“Innova for Italy” is an initiative by the Italian “Minister for Technological Innovation and Digitalization” that invites organizations from the private and public sectors to provide ideas and solutions for prevention, diagnostics, and monitoring of the spread of Coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) on the whole national territory. We presented a solution to monitor and localize patients and control the spread of COVID-19.
Our team worked to adapt our tracking solution to be able to effectively track and monitor patients and hospital staff to control the spread of the virus. The sick patient or hospital staff holds a small tracker in his pocket. Every time they move inside or outside of the hospital facility the system alerts who they were in contact with, who are the people at risk and if the isolation is properly conducted. This solution allows real-time understanding of hospital capacity so they can fast identify what type of movement needs to be done between hospitals to optimize capacity and avoid dangerous and inefficient delays.
We hope our technology can contribute to mitigating COVID impact and we are looking forward to understanding and finding other ways in which we can contribute.
