“Transforming Healthcare with New Models to Connect Patients, Families and Providers,” by Yuri Quintana, PhD, Chief, Division of Clinical Informatics, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, and Assistant Professor of Medicine, Harvard Medical School  

Parks Associates research finds COVID-19 is forcing seniors into new routines with smart home and healthcare technologies, which may result in new willingness to use tech-based solutions. Fifty-four percent of seniors who used a video conferencing solution during COVID-19 did so for the first time. Additionally, use of telehealth services rose five times year-over-year, with 29% of seniors reporting telehealth use in Q2 2020, compared to just 6% in 2019.

“COVID-19 is forcing consumers, smart home companies, and the healthcare industry to try new solutions and forge new partnerships to realize a complete, home-based experience in healthcare delivery,” said Brad Russell, Research Director, Connected Home, Parks Associates. “At Connected Health Summit, we will examine market forces driving a range of new technologies, like virtual health assistants (voice/text/avatars), AI-powered diagnostics and navigation tools, AR and VR experiences, and robotics, and highlight industry perspectives on issues such as the potential impact on health outcomes, efficiency of healthcare delivery, market viability, expected speed of implementation, and important issues to consider when applying emerging technologies.”

How to Make Remote Monitoring Tech Part of Everyday Health Care

 TeleHealth relies on a series of sensors connected to conventional central monitoring stations.

How to Make Remote #Monitoring Tech Part of Everyday #Health Care | #TpromoCom #TeleHealth | What is remote patient monitoring?

While “telehealth” broadly refers to all health care activities that are conducted through telecommunications technology, remote patient monitoring is a subset that involves the collection, transmission, evaluation, and communication of patient health data from electronic devices. These devices include wearable sensors, implanted equipment, and handheld instruments.

The Master Disablement Plan for CV-19

ISIO (image)The Master Disablement Plan for CV-19 | #TpromoCom #ISIO #COVID19 #Security | This work is a simple solution to disabling COVID-19. COVID-19 is in theater and will be an active biological threat until such time a cure is discovered, and the population is inoculated. https://bit.ly/2D0DIeP

Therefore, the infectiousness of the disease dictates that many people will be infected to the extent that all people must be tested, monitored, and managed daily. This calls for mass mobilization and focused concentration by all stakeholders using the same methods and working in sync to limit the level of collateral damage.

Situation

  • The Health department have set protocols to ‘chemically’ test and in addition for hygiene and social practises for cv-19.

  • Mobile phone cv-19 awareness tech in theory may work however, the length of pandemic life- time plus the known and unknown impacting issues may not derive the desired results.

  • The Security Industry views the situation differently and considers that [they] are dealing with an active biological threat and therefore are conscious of unique challenges that could influence increased infections. Therefore, they have a different comprehension of the situation, the specific objectives to be achieved and security protocols that must be used. The security sector and industry can electronically 2nd tier test millions of people. Furthermore, they have the semi-and skilled manpower to orchestrate the managed flow of people for quarantine.

  • Security success depends on the level of situational awareness of the decision-makers (people) on the ground and their reaction speed. When the situation talks to a pandemic, then reaction speed must be highly proactive with distinctive objectives.

AtlasIED makes face masks free to (image)

AtlasIED Manufactures and Donates 26,000 PPE Face Shields Across the U.S. | #TpromoCom #COVID19 #FirstResponder #Audio | AtlasIED is doing its part to protect the well-being of medical personnel by manufacturing and distributing thousands of units of Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) Face Shields free of charge to hospitals, triage centers, nursing homes, and other medical facilities nationwide, as well as local emergency responders, fire departments and police departments.

Nearly 1,200 orders have been filled since assembly and distribution of the personal protection equipment began on April 10 at AtlasIED’s Ennis, Texas, manufacturing facility. Support will be ongoing, as AtlasIED has enough material to produce as many as 26,000 shields.

The manufacture and distribution of the face shields was a huge undertaking that involved the modification of AtlasIED’s existing assembly line, sourcing of materials, programming of a laser cutting machine, reallocation of bandwidth and employees, implementing a dust-free environment to keep the shields clean, and developing an online request form.

“In these uncertain times, AtlasIED felt it necessary to do what it could to ensure the safety of the nation’s healthcare workers,” says AtlasIED President John Ivey. “Through the commitment of our employees, we were able to execute timely development and distribution of face shields to medical facilities throughout the country. At the same time, we are able to keep everyone at the manufacturing facility fully employed.”

Security prepare to combat Coronavirus 

ISIO (image)Viral Disease Security

By ISIO [International Security Industry Organization]

No-one knows if this Coronavirus could turn into a pandemic but, at this moment in time, this must be seriously be considered.

A few months ago, ISIO suggested in articles that security managers must ensure that there is a contingency in the budget to obtain equipment or skills training in case of an unknown threat that could arrive out of the blue.

Any responsible managing or finance director must consider allocating 

funding and preparing for this emerging threat because it has life impacting or life & death possibilities.

Considering Equipment, Manpower training and Policy

Training for Staff

Obviously, the biggest nightmare is not knowing who a threat until one can are truly see and hear the threat. The faster a person of interest is identified the better. A non-intrusive method to interview someone that is suspected of having flu symptoms. Consider the fact that people may lie or hide about their medical status because of fears. One may then need to determine where and who they were with over the past days. Subsequently, quick interviewing methods based on deception detection is required (ISIO highly recommends HIM Tool link below)

Strangely enough, you would be surprised how many people do not know how to wash their hands. Regardless – show them when talking to them ‘by soaping up between fingers and even fingernails’. Furthermore, ensure that bathrooms are stocked with medical soap.

Furthermore, train all, that touching others must be with medical gloves. Ensure that any cuts or open wounds must be quickly cleaned with disinfectant and securely covered with plasters

Equipment:

Some type of thermal detector be it connected to cctv or handheld to identify people that have high temperatures.

Medical gloves and face masks for all staff and specially security staff

Mouth-to-mouth respiration protectors for safety officers or staff familiar with first aid training

Consider Policy

It may be the case that  people may come into contact with many people. Some may be tested once and set free. Subsequently, all people must be closely continuously monitored for flu symptoms. Naturally, any educated HR professional in the company would be able to contribute towards policy besides the training of staff (perhaps security can assist in the training. The benefit of security staff assisting would be reinforcing the knowledge and heightening situational awareness which is a key factor for security awareness)

Furthermore, staff that are on travel trips must be supported by HR or Security in every which way. It is suggested that, HR and Security learning from this experience, to ensure that the staff that travel are provided a travel bag with the necessary items to protect themselves which should include masks, gloves and plasters.
