CES 2021 AIPHAS Smart Ward Total Solution Helps Raise Nurses' Efficiency and Reduce Operation Costs
The outstanding solutions offered by AIPHAS earned them selection by Taiwan Tech Arena (TTA) as one of the 100 featured Taiwanese startups showcased at CES 2021.
The average nurse is directly responsible for the care of 9 patients and is on-call for up to 30+ patients at any given time. Moreover, nurses work on average 1-2 hours overtime most every day.
AIPHAS sees the problem and wants to help.Â AIPHAS hasÂ built a smart ward solution to let nurses respond to call events 10 times faster and help nurses keep an eye on ward safety and patient safety to prevent emergent incidents such as fires and falls.
This system helps raise nurses' efficiency and cuts down on overtime wages to the tune of overÂ $150KÂ per year. The most exciting part is that system installation requires just 3-5 days, allowing hospitals to benefit fromÂ AIPHAS'sÂ smart boost almost immediately, saving time and money.
AIPHA Helps Hospitals in Different Ways
Aipha-Call is a plug-n-play smart nurse call system that can quickly and easily upgrade hospital wards. Each plug-n-play Aipha-Call forms a WiFi mesh system that keeps every Aipha-Call connected while acting as a Bluetooth and WiFi portal for other IoT devices.
Aipha-Eye is a thermal monitor system that watches over ward beds. The system immediately sends out an alert when abnormal environmental heat or patient activities are detected, pushing real-time notifications when something goes wrong. Together with Aipha-Call, Aipha-Eye sends notifications to medical personnel when abnormal heat is detected before a fire starts and when patients need assistance to get out of bed.
Aipha-Board is an integrated center for medical personnel to better manage the entire nurse station. Aipha-Board contains each patient's status in detail as well as all notifications from Aipha-Call, Aipha-Eye, and other connected IoT devices. Aipha-Board can display across devices so that medical personnel stay informed anytime, anywhere.
AIPHAS is the most innovative smart-ward solution from management tools and IoT devices to service. As a total solution provider, AIPHAS values system design, software & hardware integration, and product design.
AIPHASÂ may be used in hospitals, nursing homes, and long-term care institutions.Â AIPHASÂ built immediate connectivity in 6+ hospitals within our first 6 months in business, and are continuing to deepenÂ AIPHAS'sÂ partner relationships with each.
