IParamed Medical has been working with the University of Oxford Clinical Research Unit (OUCRU) on a high-tech solution called Tele-ICU Monitoring for the treatment of COVID-19 patients.
According to the company, the technology has been applied since August 13 at the Hospital for Tropical Diseases in Ho Chi Minh City, one of the main medical facilities in the south central COVID-19 treatment at present.
It uses the Internet of Things (IoT) system which allows medical staff to remotely monitor the condition of patients with data sent from an application connected to monitoring devices on the patients.
The solution will be upgraded based on physician feedback, to better meet the demands of medical procedures in the hospital, according to an iParamed representative.
Patient data will be updated 24 hours a day and signals will be sent to medical workers if patients’ condition worsens.
COVID-19 patients are also able to keep an eye on their own conditions in order to adjust their posture or daily activities.
Critical care telemonitoring helps medical staff save time during checks and avoid direct contact with patients, reducing the risk of infection.
iParamed and the OUCRU hope the solution can be applied in other hospitals for COVID-19 patients in HCM City and the country as a whole.
