Healthnet Global, a subsidiary of Apollo Hospitals, has introduced Automaid, a smart in-patient room automation system that is capable of remote patient monitoring and triaging.
Automaid is equipped with a remote patient monitoring system with an AI-powered triaging system that monitors vital parameters in real-time, which doctors can access through a centralised dashboard. The system allows health staff to track all patients’ conditions in a single monitor or in a mobile app. The system can be configured with custom alerts to provide extra focus on critical patients and deliver proactive care.
Automaid allows patients to control electric and light appliances through touch and voice commands. Patients can access room services such as housekeeping, food and other facilities as well using the AI-powered room system.

“There is a huge potential for AutoMaid to bring about a paradigm shift in the healthcare system with contactless health monitoring and an AI-based early warning system. It can also help in monitoring at-risk patients at home and enabling doctors to continuously monitor their health,” Dr Sangita Reddy, Managing director of Apollo Hospitals said.
The number of active nurses and doctors in the country is around 6.1 and 10.0 per 10,000 patients. Contactless remote patient monitoring and triaging systems will ease the burden on hospitals and healthcare professionals.
