A potential challenge during the pandemic outbreak like COVID19 is overwhelmed hospitals. At present, the hospitals don’t have the capacity for large number of incoming patients. There is a need for a technology platform which is capable of remote-monitoring and allowing for the engagement of patients in their homes. The capabilities also facilitate communication between quarantined people and the healthcare service and maintain visibility of those recently discharged.
Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM) platform offers an ideal way to monitor patients while they are in quarantine or at home. The platform offers an end-to-end solution all the way from devices to central command center dashboard and analytics along with managed services. The device hub include those that measure vital body temperature, heart rate, blood pressure, SPO2 level in the blood. If the patient clinical situation deteriorates, the system, supported by health-workers oversight, can respond rapidly through central command center and decide if they need more intensive levels of medical care. At the same time, providers are at no risk of exposure to COVID-19 when they manage a patient remotely. It is highly important to preserve a healthy clinician workforce at any time and especially during a health crisis like COVID-19. During this public health emergency, it is imperative that the Government and healthcare system adapt as the situation warrants to act upon measures to save lives.
If small Patient Monitoring could be connected to a network wirelessly, patients would be able to move around freely while their physiological signals are monitored. Thus, medical personnel could be informed about a patient’s critical condition regardless of their whereabouts and they could be treated promptly if an emergency occurs. Furthermore, portable devices can be integrated into the Healthcare environment and used to develop novel applications. Thus, we will develop a portable embedded device that can monitor the condition of patients in real time using biomedical sensor network such as sensor is pulse oximeter (SPO2), thermometer, respiration, blood pressure (BP), and provide various physiological signals via wireless communication so that the physiological signals may be monitored remotely Based on the graphic display (android Smartphone) and web, using Web Server and Database subsystem we can take physiological signals data any where in the word at any time and this device detect emergencies and inform medical personnel when they occur. Thus, medical personnel could be informed about a patient’s critical condition regardless of their whereabouts and they could be treated promptly if an emergency occur
RPM will help to ease of access to patient data. It will help to deliver high quality care to the more patients. It will help to exposure to healthcare staff. RPM is a patient monitoring system. It collects the physiological signals of patients using biomedical sensors network and processes them so they can be interpreted easily by medical personnel. Unlike conventional patient monitoring, RPM is small, portable, battery operated, and based on wireless communication. Thus, our device could be useful in a Healthcare environment where the remote monitoring of patients is essential.
Action Plan after the Hackathon
After the Hackathon, we will develop the idea further and standardize decisions regarding supply and distribution with the platform. With adequate funding, we will launch this product within 5-6 weeks after the hackathon
