Memphis, TN., – Baptist Memorial Health Care and LookDeep Health today announced a collaboration to expand inpatient telehealth capabilities at Baptist Memorial Health Care.
LookDeep’s Clinical Action Platform, built on modern SOC2 Type II audited software, enables health systems to securely tackle inpatient telemedicine needs with a single solution. Its powerful computer vision and AI capabilities aid sitters, nurses, therapists, and doctors in continuously monitoring patients at every moment of their hospital journey.
“We are excited about our collaboration with LookDeep to use AI to expand virtual safety, nursing and medical services to support our staff and improve patient care,” said Dr. Paul DePriest, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer for Baptist Memorial Health Care. “We evaluated the solution at one of our hospitals and believe it could be valuable to advancing the telemedicine program throughout our health care system.”
LookDeep’s advanced AI technology continuously observes patients –analyzing their movement patterns, actions, and the room environment– to prompt hospital staff and aid in supporting patient safety and care. When paired with telemedicine teams, this creates a modern virtual inpatient command center that supports hospital bedside teams and improves patient care.
“We have a long history of using telemedicine inside the hospital to help patients,” said Derick Ziegler, Baptist Memorial Health Care’s Vice President of Affiliated Integration and West TN Operations. “This experience allowed us to observe the unique aspects of LookDeep’s technology and its compatibility with our telemedicine program.”
“By eliminating hardware costs and only charging hospitals per patient day used, we are able to dramatically drive down the cost of core inpatient video monitoring. This allows us to expand its use to every patient in the hospital and sets the stage for AI to continuously monitor every patient –systemically tackling safety, clinical productivity, and clinical care needs,” said Narinder Singh, CEO and Co-Founder of LookDeep. “We are thrilled to collaborate with Baptist Memorial Health Care, as their deep experience and innovation with telemedicine in urban and rural hospitals is the perfect setting for our AI technology to prove its worth.”
LookDeep’s AI computer vision technology has been developed through research partnerships and thousands of hours of patient video. Its research implications have been presented at the American Thoracic Society Annual Meeting (2022), Machine Learning for Healthcare Annual Conference (2022), Academy of Consultation-Liaison Psychiatry Annual Meeting (2022), and the upcoming American Telemedicine Association Annual Conference in March 2023.
