Israeli artificial intelligence and deep learning imaging analytics company Zebra Medical Vision is set to provide essential support the healthcare industry by undertaking current and future algorithms to healthcare providers for $1 per scan. Its new suite, AI1 will see the development of high quality, cost-effective healthcare on a global scale.

Over the last 20 years, demand for imaging services have surged, placing significant strains on medical professionals to increasingly provide the required services. However, with such high volumes there is always an increase in compromising of patient care, leading companies to increasingly look implementing new technologies to support this growing market.

"Clinicians today are tremendously pressured and overworked," says Elad Benjamin, CEO of Zebra Medical Vision. "I believe tools like Zebra can help compliment what a radiologist does by providing a second pair of eyes that looks at all the potential maladies of a patient without missing anything."

Automated Imaging Analytics tools such as Zebra’s Deep Learning engine will undertake the clinical and computational horsepower needed to allow radiologists to make the next leap in patient care and enable the continuation of exceptional patient services.

“With this new model, we hope to facilitate adoption globally, especially in countries where access to radiology is difficult,” adds Benjamin.

“We are making a commitment to provide our current tools, and all future ones, for a flat $1 USD per scan. By doing so we believe that a true difference can be made in the provision of radiology services worldwide.”

Zebra-med capabilities include automatic detection of liver, lung, cardiovascular and bone disease, and new capabilities are constantly being released – covering breast cancer, lung cancer, brain trauma, hypertension, and other clinical areas. Its findings are integrated into PACS and RIS systems, allowing radiologists to seamlessly include them in their reading and reporting workflow.

This automated assistance contributes to more comprehensive, quantitative and consistent reporting, improving the output of radiologists and contributing to overall improved patient care. The company’s analytics engine is deployed at over 50 hospitals globally, and has analysed more than a million patient scans to date.

Currently partnered with over 50 hospitals globally, the company has undertaken a number of studies in the UK and is hoping to partner with the National Health Service. Additionally, it aims to support poor nations, and provide universal support to all.

Schneider Electric's intelligent patient room: need to know

We take a look at Schneider Electric's new smart patient room. 

Schneider Electric has launched a virtual showcase that features its new "intelligent patient room". What is it exactly? 

Who: Schneider Electric is a multinational that develops energy and automation solutions for many different industries - including hospitality, education, defence, and healthcare. Founded in 1836, today it is a Fortune 500 company, and it currently provides technology to 40% of hospitals around the world, among them Penn Medicine, one of the top hospitals in the US where Schneider's EcoStruxure for Healthcare is deployed, an IoT solution. 

What: Schneider has launched its Innovation Experience Live Healthcare Lab, an immersive experience that takes visitors through a demonstration of a hospital, including the doctor’s office, the operating room, and the intelligent patient room. 

The room features a digital patient footwall - a touchscreen that creates a single reference point for patients, families and healthcare providers, by incorporating care information, entertainment and environmental controls all in one place.  A separate digital patient door display has important information for healthcare staff. 

All Schneider's equipment is low-voltage, and integrated so that the patient room, clinical needs and IT are all seamlessly connected, what Schneider calls a digital “system of systems.”

Why:  Mike Sanders, Customer Projects & Services in Healthcare Innovation at Schneider Electric, explains: “The hospital of the future will need to put the patient experience at the forefront, using innovative and connected systems to provide superior in-hospital care experiences.” 

“With the shift to remote work and business brought forth by the pandemic, we knew that we needed to invest in a new virtual experience that showcases our vision for a truly integrated healthcare experience. We believe our intelligent patient room is the solution that our healthcare partners and customers have been looking for, and we’re excited to offer a way for them to experience it no matter where they are in the world.”

Where: The virtual experience was modelled after the new innovations installed at Penn Medicine in Philadelphia, the first real-world installation of Schneider Electric’s fully integrated intelligent patient room technology. It is currently being hosted at the company’s St. Louis Innovation Hub and Innovation Executive Briefing Center (IEBC) facility.
