Dozee coverts data into vital signs like heart rate, BP with 98.4% proven accuracy
NEW DELHI, June 15 (The CONNECT) - Dozee, a government supported AI-powered device, has helpedf in the upgrading of over 4,000 hospital beds for Step-Down ICUs across 35 districts in India.
Last month, Dozee has already served over 30,000 patients, saved over 65,000 nursing hours and prompted over 750 timely ICU transfers through its Early Warning System, says an official release.
Dozee is an easy to deploy solution to upgrade the normal hospital bed to a Step-Down-ICU. It records the micro-vibrations produced in the heart-beat and respiration cycle using Ballistocardiography when placed under a mattress.
Columbia.edu describes that Step Down Units (SDUs) provide an intermediate level of care between the Intensive Care Units (ICUs)and the general medical-surgical wards. Because SDUs are less richly staffed than ICUs, they are less costly to operate.
Dozee is one such device, made by Bangalore-based startup Turtle Shell Technologies, is a pioneer in contactless, continuous remote patient monitoring (RPM) in hospitals and at home, delivering unparallel patient safety & maximize utilization of ICU beds.
The device, using Artificial Intelligence algorithms, converts this data into vital signs like heart rate, respiration rate, and blood pressure and has 98.4% proven accuracy as medical-grade products. It also records Oxygen saturation and ECG using accessories. The data can also be accessed remotely on any smart phone via an app. The data can also be monitored on a central monitoring dashboard.
Dozee also features an AI-powered Early Warning System that sends proactive alerts to clinicians, thereby reducing the nursing staff's workload and improving patient outcomes. The system also provides ICU-grade monitoring to every bed with no inconvenience of wires or electrodes to the patient, thus improving the overall administration for patients' care.
Through its Million ICU initiative, Dozee aims to improve public healthcare by utilising transformative technology to provide high-quality care to every individual.
The company aims to upgrade 50,000 public hospital beds into Step-Down ICUs by raising CSR funds from several Indian and International organisations. This initiative will enable the hospitals to respond to the COVID-19 crisis and usher in a rapid and long-term transformation in India's public healthcare infrastructure.
Dozee has been supported in their entrepreneurial journey by DBT, BIRAC through various initiatives like BIG, SEED, LEAP, BioNEST, and others. According to information provided on the product’s Linkedin page, Dozee has been supported by Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Govt. of India, Qualcomm and so on.
