AI-powered care facility automation platform care.ai announced that it is partnering with multinational electronics company Samsung to integrate its Smart Care Facility Platform into the tech giant’s displays for use by health systems.
The Florida-based company’s Smart Care Facility Platform includes a network of sensors spread through a care facility that monitors patients using AI, which allows a facility to collect real-time behavior data for clinical and operational insights.
Through the partnership, care.ai’s platform will be integrated into Samsung displays, thus allowing for AI-powered patient monitoring. Clinical care teams will also be able to attend virtual visits over care.ai devices paired with Samsung’s displays.
“By partnering with Samsung Display Solutions for our Smart Care Facility Platform installed with the nation’s healthcare innovation leaders, we deliver the highest quality patient and clinician experience for Smart Care Teams,” Chakri Toleti, care.ai’s founder, said in a statement.
“Our mission is to lead the era of Smart Care Facilities, where clinicians can work at the top of their licenses, whether they are bedside or virtual. Our virtual nursing and clinician solutions are of the highest fidelity and our devices are easy to deploy so they must easily integrate and communicate with the displays, making Samsung an ideal partner.”
THE LARGER TREND
In November, care.ai announced it raised $27 million in funding, which the company said it would use to scale its growth and deliver “ambient intelligence to healthcare.”
Earlier this year, the company announced it was partnering with Colorado-based remote patient-monitoring company BioIntelliSense to integrate its BioButton wearable – a product for continuous vital-sign monitoring that captures temperature, respiratory rate and heart rate at rest – into its Smart Care Facility Platform.
care.ai has also announced other partnerships, including one with the Texas Hospital Association to create statewide adoption of AI-powered patient monitoring.
Last year, California-based virtual healthcare provider HealthTap and Samsung announced a strategic partnership to bring virtual healthcare to Samsung Smart TVs in the U.S.
