AVer Europe Cameras Used for Telemedicine During the Olympics and to Fight Covid in Taiwan. Back in Taiwan, AVer’s PTZ auto tracking camera technology has enabled frontline medical staff to provide remote medical care during the COVID-19 pandemic.
New Taipei City’s Far Eastern Memorial Hospital is dealing with Taiwan’s most severe COVID-19 cases. The Artificial Intelligence Centre of the hospital’s Medical Research Department has been at the centre of the pandemic since May. Through cooperation with AVer, the hospital has created isolated care. The remote medical staff use the Internet to control the camera and clearly view the patient's physiological symptoms. After collecting information, medical staff put on protective clothing and enter the isolation ward to care for the patient. This setup lets medical staff avoid having to frequently enter the ward and still effectively fight the pandemic in Taiwan.
According to Cai Yichang, director of the Artificial Intelligence Center of the Far Eastern Memorial Hospital Medical Research Department, “AVer's PTC330 high-precision 30X optical zoom camera clearly captures the various physiological symptoms of our patients. Our nurses and doctors control the camera to get the detailed images necessary for diagnosis, reducing the risks involved with entering and exiting high-infection areas. Patients also receive more efficient care with this brand-new quarantine care system."
Rene Buhay, Senior VP of Sales and Marketing at AVer Europe, comments “It’s fantastic that AVer was able to support the Olympics and the fight against COVID in this way. Technology and telemedicine is the way forward.”
