Hospitals worldwide are facing the challenge of staff shortages, prompting video software company Milestone Systems to introduce a solution: remote patient monitoring technology. This innovative technology aims to support healthcare workers and enhance overall patient care.
Projections indicate that by 2030, there will be a shortage of approximately 15 million healthcare professionals globally. Milestone’s data-driven video technology can assist hospitals in responding to this crisis while maintaining the provision of high-quality care.
The recently launched XProtect Hospital Assist offers a video solution that enables medical staff to remotely monitor multiple patients simultaneously and respond swiftly to incidents, thereby alleviating the burden of routine tasks.
Rahul Yadav, Chief Technology Officer at Milestone Systems, said: “There is no doubt that the irreplaceable human touch of healthcare professionals is essential, and by integrating data-driven video technology into their daily routine, they can now be even further empowered.
“With the use of XProtect Hospital Assist, hospitals can improve patient care by offering an additional layer of support for the healthcare staff.
