About the talk

Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU) used computer vision technology to dramatically increase its ability to manage risk, preserve personal protective equipment (PPE), and remotely monitor patients using state-of-the-art virtual technology in intensive care.

It did so by bringing together near real-time data from ventilators, patient monitoring systems, electronic medical records, labs, and other systems to allow one clinician to monitor several patients at once.

In this session, OHSU’s CXO and GE Healthcare’s Chief Digital Officer Amit Phadnis will also discuss how OHSU leveraged virtual ICU technology to overcome the challenges of managing a large number of COVID-19 patients – across several locations – and help them receive the best care possible as well as ensure clinicians can work safely and efficiently during the pandemic.

COVID-19 has placed hospitals and health systems like OHSU under extreme pressure as operating protocols, systems and technologies need to be updated quickly to treat patients infected with the virus. Further, the virality and hyper-contagious nature of COVID-19 has also placed increased emphasis on the safety of clinicians and healthcare workers who are treating patients. To address these concerns, the adoption of advanced and emerging computer vision technologies, such as virtual ICU solutions, is accelerating to aid today’s growing hospital admissions.
