The current pandemic poses a variety of new challenges to all healthcare professionals and facilities, including clinicians and researchers. In response, governments, including that of Israel, have enlisted high tech companies to assist in the battle against Covid-19.
Introducing Sheba’s Critical Care Corona Unit
The head of Sheba Medical Center’s Infectious Disease unit, Professor Gili Regev-Yochay, speaks with Steve Walz, our international spokesperson, about Sheba’s new Critical Care Corona Unit (CCCU) underground complex.
Approximately two months after coronavirus COVID-19 broke out in China, the country has almost succeeded in halting the epidemic.
A compact blood analyzer developed by an Israeli blood testing startup has been implemented to support the healthcare management of coronavirus-infected patients.
Proactive, detailed planning helped Sheba to confront the different hurdles involved in dealing with coronavirus. “We had a full drill a month before the first coronavirus patient was diagnosed in Israel,” Walz said.
The program consists of two main components: a “robot,” which is a Vici solution designed by Intouch Health, a California-based virtual reality healthcare program, and a telemedicine application designed by Datos Health.
