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

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

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

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.
