We work to prevent HealthCare Associated Infections by using HealthCare Artificial Intelligence

01.

Technology

E-GIS have developed the silent assistant, a moment reminder, that will guide the the employees, patients and relatives to conduct hand hygiene in compliance with the 5 Moments, according to hospital routines.

Hand hygiene, performed the right way, at the right time, reduces disease transmission, prevents HAI, decreases costs and prevents antibiotic resis- tance. Hand hygiene is our most important, easiest and most cost e ective infection control.

The system handles the received information continuosly. No employee is tracked individually. We make sure that the data is anonymized and pre- sented on a sta group level to the hygiene management.

How it works?

E-GIS Propose a simple way to faciliate prevention of HAI

Anonymity

No employee is tracked individually. Data is anonymised

Silence

Emission of a red light, is te systems violation alert.

ECO

Decreases costs and prevents antibiotic resistance.
The Health care Arti cial Intelligence System will track all people residing in the patients room.
The red light appear when the personnel or patiets did not conduct hand hygiene and did approach to 5 cm from the bed zone.
The system can handle several people in the ptient’s room.

Personnel

The system alerts with a red light if the personnel is aproaching the bed and has not conducted hand hygiene.
Sensors in the sink detect and transmit in- formation to the base station that nurse is conducting hand hygiene and she can continue her work.

In order to respect the silence in the room, the system alert violations with red light

Sensors in the sink detect the transmit information to the base station that nurse is conducting hand hygiene and she can continue her work.

Patient

The system alerts with a red light if the patient is approaching the bed and has not conducted hand hygiene.
Sensors in the sink detect and transmit in- formation to the base station that the pa- tient is conducting hand hygiene and can go to his bed.

E-GIS Sensors

  • Notify the HealthCare Giver of deviations from the movements.
  • Notify if the HealthCare Giver uses a watch, ring or bracelet.
  • Alert a comin in the room patient to wash hands before he goes to his bed.
  • Alert visitors to wash their hands before moving within the patient zone.
  • Alert if patient-related instruments haven not been cleaned.
  • File all events, but not identify the care giver.

E-GIS Benefits

  • Does not give any a ect to the people and devices in hospital.
  • Does not require any active participation and the Privacy Act.
  • Does not require any special traning.
  • Does not disturb operation at the hospital.
  • Has no moving parts, requires little or no maitenance.
  • Has easy installation, take up little space and not requires special cleaning.
  • Has long life (20-30) years.

About us

The World Health Organization established the “My 5 Moments for Hand Hygiene” in 2007, what is helps to reduse interalhos- pital infections. 50% of infections can be avoided by improving hand hygiene compliance.

We found that only moment reminder can help to personnel and patients to do hand hygiene every time when it is neccesary. Based on this idea we have developed E-GIS, a guide what give alert about HAI violations to everyone who are located in patient room.

Our goal is reduse hospital-acquired in- fection risk, to help hospitals save more lives and reduse antibiotic usage in the world, what much reduce economic spendings for HAI treatment.

International

Hospital associated infections (HAI) has a global prevalence

HAI are infections occurring in patients during stay in a hospital facility and are the most frequent side-e ect in the health care industry.

Canada
11.6%
USA
4.5%
Brazil
14.0%
Tanzania
14.8%
Mali
18.7%
Morocco

...and represent a serious problem in society today

HAI costs the society billions, increases the use of antibiotics, and cause unnecessary deaths
Massive Financial Burden
  • Increases the direct patient cost with 3x
  • Prolonged hospital stay with 2-5x

$40bn

€7bn

NOK2bn

Unnecessary use of antibiotics
  • 25% of all antibiotic subscriptions are attributed to HAI

25%

Significant hidden costs
  • Increases the direct patient cost with 3x
  • Prolonged hospital stay with 2-5x
Unnecessary deaths
  • 3x times higher mortality compared to patients without HAI

Addressable market: Every hospital bed is exposed to HAI, and therefore the addressable market for E-GIS is represented by the number of hospital beds all over the world.

Partners

We believe in partnerships. We are not looking for “clients” or “customers” but for partners.

We believe in long-term relationships that bring value to both businesses.

We believe in win-wins and in the best fu- ture of healthcare.

E-GIS goal is innovate to improve health care in hospitals. The HAI problem is global problem and our values is to reduce interral-hospital infections. To achieve this, worldwide we seek new partners with whom we share complementary capabilities and mutual interests.
