care.ai, NVIDIA Partner for AI-Enabled Autonomous Patient Monitoring

NVIDIA Jetson drives computationally intensive applications for AI at the edge to enable care.ai’s autonomous monitoring solution to recognize and infer patient activities and staff workflow patterns in real-time at an enterprise scale.  Why It Matters “There is a great number of preventable incidents that occur within hospitals and nursing homes each year: falls, infections and protocol violations,” said Chakri Toleti, Founder and CEO of care.ai.

Through this collaboration, we now have the ability to run our deep neural networks on devices while maintaining a small physical and energy footprint.”  “AI has the potential to improve healthcare across a range of areas, and ultimately help save lives,” said Mona Flores, MD, Global Lead for Hospitals and Clinical Partnerships at NVIDIA.

Google and care.ai Launches Autonomous Monitoring for Hospitals

Google collaborates with a new company, care.ai to bring autonomous monitoring capabilities of self-driving cars to hospitals, nursing homes and other healthcare facilities to prevent patient falls, bedsores, protocol violations, etc.

care.ai uses Google’s Coral TPU to turn every room in a facility to a “Self Aware Room,” its active learning neural networks and edge sensors can predict and prevent potentially fatal mishaps for patients in a clinical setting.

Hundreds of thousands of patients die each year, as a result of avoidable falls, pressure ulcers, infectious disease, and many more preventable medical errors. care.ai’s breakthrough invention will create a transformative impact across clinical and operational processes to establish a new standard of care.

Using multiple modalities, care.ai sends context-aware, intelligent notifications to staff to alert and inform them about what is happening in any room at any time.  This new power of knowledge transforms archaic, reactive tasks into intelligent, proactive workflows.

Our advanced deep neural networks run at the edge, maximizing the predictive power to nanoseconds, bringing substantial improvements to operational readiness and clinical quality.

Posted in Fellow News The placenta offers an abundant source of placenta-derived mesenchymal stem cells (pMSCs), which a new study has shown can readily form cell sheets that could be implanted in children with congenital heart defects and offer benefits for heart repair and regeneration compared to commonly used synthetic material-based scaffolds.

In the study, the researchers evaluated MSCs independent of their source, demonstrated their ability to form cell sheets, and described other beneficial effects related to paracrine section and cell-cell interactions at the site of MSC implantation.
