Remote patient monitoring
CatAI’s next-generation remote patient monitoring is based on a highly accurate and reliable technological solution that enables tracking medical parameters in the comfort of a patient’s home. It is ideally suited for hospitals and clinics, nursing homes and assisted living facilities, to which it is offered as SaaS.
Intuitive, straightforward process
With a single click, the CatAI user-friendly app transmits the measured parameters directly into the patient’s medical file, along with additional important medical information. It is designed not only to operate with advanced, transmitting medical devices, but – uniquely – also with older generation, non-transmitting ones.
The monitored patient vitals include any or all of the following:
Blood oxygen saturation level
The vital signs (heart rate, oxygen saturation level, etc.) that require monitoring, as determined specifically for the patient by their physician, are measured.
As well as multiple additional parameters and test results:
Blood glucose level
Blood clotting level
It is important to note that the process can also take place on the healthcare provider’s own app. For the sake of convenience, we refer below to the CatAI app.
When using transmitting devices, the reading is automatically transmitted to the CatAI app.
When using non-transmitting devices, the process consists of the following simple steps:
The patient, a member of family or a caregiver logs on to the CatAI app installed on their smartphone.
The user takes a photograph of each measurement result with the smartphone camera and uploads them one by one. Confirmation of receipt is provided after each upload
If considered necessary by the patient’s physician, a tailored questionnaire, to be filled out daily or periodically is presented on the CatAI app screen. The questionnaire covers issues that the physician regards as important for tracking and supporting the medical caregivers in evaluating the patient’s medical condition. The answers to these questions may provide an important early indication of health deterioration.
Once all the information is uploaded, CatAI’s proprietary technology extracts the data from the photographs, and automatically records the measurement results in the patient’s file. This information is submitted to the physician, the healthcare provider’s control center, and any other relevant medical professional. Family members can also gain access to the data, subject to the patient’s agreement.
When a healthcare provider’s app is used, the images of the monitored parameters’ measurements are transmitted from the app used to the CatAI app for data extraction, and the data itself is then returned to the healthcare provider for automatic entry into the patient file.
From the patient’s perspective, the process remains the same, regardless which app is used.
The daily transmission of the patient data is tracked at the healthcare provider’s control center. While the software is proprietary CatAI technology, the control center is manned by staff with a medical background – either the healthcare provider’s personnel, or an emergency medical services organization operating as its subcontractor.
The control center dashboard is continuously updated to reflect the incoming data. A visual indication appears when no readings have been received for more than a predefined number of days – as determined individually for each patient by their physician, depending on their unique medical condition.
The patient or their registered contact person is then contacted to see if any assistance is required, and are invited to measure and upload the tracked parameters, and fill out the tailored questionnaire.
AI and machine learning enable detecting irregularities in measurements, and immediately alerting the patient’s physician. The measurements are accessible both as values and as charts indicating changes over a chosen period (days to months), to support quick interpretation.
Family members can also be alerted, if so desired by the patient.
Early detection of health deterioration or errors in medication, as evidenced by inconsistent or out-of-normal-range measurements, can thus be quickly addressed, before the patient suffers potentially serious harm.
The control center operates 24/7/365. Patients, their family members or caregivers are free to contact it with any questions. These will be answered by a medical practitioner – a nurse, EMT, physician, or referred to a specialist – as required.
Privacy and confidentiality
CatAI implements strict data access protocols to protect patient confidentiality at all times. All the medical data is securely uploaded to the AWS-health cloud. The entire process is compliant with the highest cyber protection requirements:
The U.S. Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA)
The General Data Protection Regulation (EU GDPR)
The Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources (FHIR) standard
