The Bulgarian technology company Check Point Cardio, a leader in individual health monitoring in Europe, has successfully launched the first crisis monitoring center for patients with coronavirus symptoms. It operates in Bucharest and is already monitoring all Romanian citizens who have symptoms of the virus. A decision by the Bulgarian Crisis Centre to implement the technology is expected in the coming days.
In addition to the manufacturer, the company is also a telemedicine center for continuous monitoring of patients. Their devices are currently being integrated in several countries in Europe, the Middle East and Asia, and their demand has increased many times over the epidemic. Pilot monitoring projects are currently being prepared in Austria, France, Italy, Israel and the UAE.
Yesterday /March, 17/ the Romanian Center was presented at the Council of Ministers of Health in Brussels by the Romanian Minister of Health – Victor Costache https://video.consilium.europa.eu/en/webcast/c435f178-fcf0 -4a84-a395-c40cd2ee56a8 (display is 2.31 hours from timing).
The main benefits of monitoring patients under quarantine are:
- Responding to changes in health status, in real time, and more effective treatment.
- Limiting the risk of transmission of the virus – the monitor is placed and easily removed by a non-specialist / relative, paramedic /.
- The patient has a live connection to the monitoring, through the device itself, and can call at any time and speak with physicians who, at the same time, view all indicators online.
- Significant cost savings – one monitoring center can monitor hundreds of patients with a team of 4 people remotely.
