With the fear surrounding the coronavirus outbreak, health facilities are overloaded with patients - some of whom are infected and some of whom are actually healthy. The challenge is to help people monitor their symptoms and determine whether or not they need to seek medical attention in order to ease the burden of health care facilities and emergency medical services.
Development of a smartphone app that can measure key vital signs and combine with answers to a questionnaire in order to give an accurate recommendation whether to seek follow-up medical care. The information will also help medical professionals determine what types of follow-up tests are necessary.
An initial version of the app has been developed. By placing a finger on the camera, the app can measure pulse, breath rate and blood oxygenation. A prototype for a simple (<100 NIS) stethoscope is being developed, to be distributed to people at risk - at home or in hospitals.
Improvement of the saturation measurement algorithm, the lungs crackles diagnosis algorithm and the smartphone stethoscope prototype. Development of a questionnaire to go along with the vital sign collection. Further work with Mada, Kupot Holim and Hospitals to fine-tune the app requirements.
