Researchers, business professionals and innovators of various countries around the globe are using technology to alleviate the effects of the global health crisis.
From monitoring platforms that track the spread of the virus to finding passive vaccines to clinical trials to drone deliveries — these are a few of the different technology projects used by Israel to fight Coronavirus.
COVID-19 remote assessment and monitoring platform
It is a triage and monitoring platform that allows officials to monitor the progress of the disease and alerts health providers of patients at risk. A symptomatic Coronavirus heat map is leveraged to locate Coronavirus symptomatic patients, and track the path of the pandemic. The information provides data-based guidance on next steps for patients, providers and public health agencies.
Currently it is in-use with the Ministry of Health, the emergency services, and all major HMOs in Israel, with the Department of Health in the State of Odisha, India, and with the Department of Health in the State of Rhode Island. Diagnostic Robotics has partnered with Deloitte and Salesforce for seamless integration to all Salesforce customers and is a member of the COVID-19 Healthcare Coalition, alongside Amazon, Google, Mayo Clinic and others.
It provides an AI layer for the healthcare system, providing services to patients, providers and insurers. Their AI-driven personalised triage system guides the patients through their journey in the medical ecosystem, analysing their medical history and current medical case using AI and NLP technologies, with generic ability to integrate with multiple sensory output data.
The Israeli Ministry of Health has developed a COVID-19 strategy which includes daily nation-wide monitoring of Coronavirus related symptoms of the population using Diagnostic Robotics digital risk assessment and monitoring platform for COVID-19, screening eight million patients daily.
Drone technology company Flytrex, in partnership with EASE Drones, the Grand Forks Region Economic Development Corporation and the City of Grand Forks, announced the launch of its drone delivery service directly to backyards in Grand Forks, North Dakota. The initiative will provide food, medicine and other essential goods via drone to selected households.
The deliveries will be made in cooperation with the Northern Plains Unmanned Aerial System Test Site (NPUASTS), with takeoffs taking place across the street from a local shopping supercenter, where provisions will be purchased. “In this time of crisis and social distancing, drones provide the ideal solution to bolster delivery capacity while keeping citizens safe at home,” said Flytrex CEO Yariv Bash.
