The technological solution is based on ergonomic “smart glasses” equipped with a video camera and a compact screen. They are connected with other gadgets in a common information environment. The medical worker who is wearing glasses can broadcast audio and video from the infectious disease wards to the “clean” area. Doctors in the “clean” area can give him/her recommendations and transfer the necessary documents, such as medical history and images, in real time.
The company representatives claim that the system reduces the risk of infection for doctors, reduces the time that doctors spend using personal protective equipment and allows them to pay more attention to their patients. Doctors can hold medical discussions remotely, train the staff quickly and engage narrowly specialized doctors in consultations.
Intel’s participation in this project is a part of its global initiative - Pandemic Response Technology Initiative. A grant from Intel allowed to implement the system in nine COVID centers in the capital. The solution is already being used in 39 clinics in Russia (August 2020).
