Unica ICT Solutions is further expanding its proposition for the healthcare sector through a partnership with Kepler Vision Technologies. Kepler is a company with extensive knowledge of computer vision and deep learning and builder of artificial intelligence software that guards the welfare of people. This partnership makes it possible to offer an intelligent solution for monitoring patients with the aid of, among other things, fall detection.
“To improve care for the elderly, we will have to rely on smart technology that can reduce the pressure on care and optimize its quality. The Kepler Night Nurse is based on Artificial Intelligence Software (AI), which analyses images from optical sensors and generates appropriate fall detection and prevention alarms for care staff. Falls are immediately detected by Kepler Night Nurse, without anyone watching. Unica ICT Solution’s position as a cutting-edge all-round ICT service providerwill be instrumental in guaranteeing the round-the-clock monitoring and care expected in care and medical facilities where Kepler Night Nurse is deployed, says Kepler Vision Technologies CEO, Harro Stokman.
In October last year, Unica ICT Solutions signed a partnership agreement with IQ Messenger, supplier of the brand-independent software platform for alarms and communication. With IQ Messenger, Unica ICT Solutions can centralize and offer 24/7 care- and building alarms in a targeted way by connecting the Kepler Night Nurse solution to this platform for alarms. This makes it possible to optimize care processes and prevent alarm fatigue among care staff. Alarms and events can also be registered in an ECD or EPD, for example, taking away some of the administrative tasks of the care staff. By collecting this data, the care sector will gain more insight, and data-driven care can be further optimized.
“Healthcare home automation and IoT are playing an increasingly important role in changing healthcare in the future, with the topic of remote care, among others, continuing to develop. This is to cope with staff shortages and allow people to live at home for longer. By extending the same technologies within care institutions to home locations (volunteer care), the same care and safety can be offered at home as in a care institution. At Unica, we would like to contribute to this by combining the knowledge and experience of all the clusters involved in healthcare,” says Dennis van de Burgt, Director Business Development at Unica ICT Solutions.
