AdviNOW Featured- inBusiness Magazine: At Workplace COVID-19 Testing with AI and AR

Posted by

AI and AR Post-COVID-19

Telehealth has made such inroads into medical care that is it considered mainstream. AdviNOW Medical, a local company founded in 2016, has developed new advances to this healthcare option that benefits patients and providers. Benefits are especially timely during this COVID-19 pandemic, but the company sees them advancing healthcare post-COVID.
AdviNOW’s artificial intelligence collects all the patient information and uses augmented reality to take measurements. This automation protects providers and patients from potential infection as the provider can complete a comprehensive examination without physical contact. The AI automates the patient experience by asking all of the questions that a doctor would need to diagnose and treat the patient. And the company’s augmented reality platform guides patients to take medical measurements with medical precision to give the provider the images and sounds required for the visit.

Webinar: Pandemic Exposed Point of Care Crisis – Real Artificial Intelligence is the Solution

Posted by


COVID-19 exposed deadly problems in the way healthcare is provided and patients access care.
Fear of exposure means more patients now stay home and don’t seek the care they need reducing already razor thin margins, impacting viability and sustainability.
Telemedicine is a solution, but a simple video call does not replace a thorough exam or address systemic issues throughout the patient/provider experience.
Adding Artificial Intelligence and Augmented Reality to Telemedicine provides a real solution for billing levels, population health documentation and real time patient guidance.
Join us on Wednesday, May 27th at 9:30AM PST for a quick 30-minute webinar as our expert discuss the inefficiencies plaguing their healthcare practices and introduce innovative technologies, such as Artificial Intelligence, to improve access, provider efficiency and effectiveness.
A Q & A session will follow the presentation.
The four main topics we’ll cover:

  1. Why profitability and financial sustainability remain elusive for so many providers
  2. Structural bottlenecks that prevent access to diagnosis, care and treatment
  3. Putting the Medicine in Telemedicine
  4. AI triage, Scribe and other efficiencies that improve profitability

When: Wednesday, May 27th at 9:30am PST
Where: Online Webinar

Paging Dr. Robot: Artificial intelligence moves into care

The next time you get sick, your care may involve a form of the technology people use to navigate road trips or pick the right vacuum cleaner online.  Now, parts of the health system are starting to use it directly with patients. During some clinic and telemedicine appointments, AI-powered software asks patients initial questions about their symptoms that physicians or nurses normally pose.
AdviNOW CEO James Bates said their AI program decides what questions to ask and what information it needs. It passes that information and a suggested diagnosis to a physician who then treats the patient remotely through telemedicine.  The company currently uses the technology in a handful of Safeway and Albertsons grocery store clinics in Arizona and Idaho. But it expects to expand to about 1,000 clinics by the end of next year.  Eventually, the company wants to have AI diagnose and treat some minor illnesses, Bates said.

AZ Technology Council Interviews AdviNOW CEO, James Bates

Healthcare is a worldwide crisis. The cost is bankrupting governments, companies and families and still falls below what most of us think as human compassion and decency in its service. Unfortunately, to give that decent access and care to all, the costs are going up not down using traditional methods. Using automation in the healthcare field is the only way to make the math work and solve this most vexing problem. Follow this link to learn more: AZ Tech Council  ]]>

Artificial Intelligence Kiosks Providing Medical Care

Inside AKOS Med Clinics at Some Safeway Stores

AI and augmented reality may sound complicated but in actuality, it really isn’t.  If you use Snapchat, then you are familiar with how graphics can be overlay onto an image in real time. We’ve done this with our instructions to show the patient where to place the measuring devices for the AI to assess and acquire these standard vital measurements (heart, lung, temperature, blood pressure, ear and throat images).  These measurements along with other information the patient provides, are sent to the provider to review prior to speaking with the patient, making the medical visit more accurate and efficient.  If the patient is uncomfortable with performing these tasks, the onsite medical assistant can help.

Convenient and Affordable Medical Visits For Both the Insured and Uninsured

Artificial Intelligence-Powered Clinics Providing Medical Care

Patients now have the ability to conduct self-examinations using equipment such as a stethoscope, temporal thermometer and blood pressure machine. Cameras are also on hand to examine a patient’s throat, ears and nose.“Once all their vitals are taken and the series of questions are over … one of our providers will come live on the screen and talk to the patient live as a virtual exam room,” Walker said.
The total process typically takes under 25 minutes, and it costs $75 per visit for those who don’t have health insurance. “The whole idea is to offer affordability and convenience for the patients,” Walker said. For the complete story, click on the following link: 92.3 FM KTAR News Story  ]]>

AdviNOW AI and AR Patient Treatment Platform Can Save Medicare

Safeway Stores Offering Health Care Powered by Artificial Intelligence “If we roll this out for 50% of the physicians in the United States, our platform can save Medicare on its own,” says AdviNOW CEO, James Bates.

Here is how it works:

Patients go into exam rooms on their own and a computerized program guides them through providing key physical information using FDA-approved wireless devices that can collect medical measurements such as temperature, ear, nose and throat images; chest sounds via a stethoscope; and blood pressure and blood oxygen content.

A virtual visit with a physician, nurse practitioner, or physician assistant concludes the Akos Med Clinic appointment via telemedicine, similar to speaking with a clinician via Facetime or Skype. The clinicians, employees of AkosMD, beam into the Safeway clinics, typically from company headquarters in Glendale.

If necessary, the virtual medical staff could provide a prescription electronically.  Click on the link below for the full story.
