Leading Rehabilitation Providers Partner in Key Telehealth Research Study in Response to COVID-19 Pandemic

Brooks Rehabilitation is pleased to announce the launch of an essential research study that will advance the use of telehealth for rehabilitation in response to public health crises such as the COVID-19 pandemic. Partners Madonna Rehabilitation Hospital and Mary Free Bed Rehabilitation Hospital complete the team of leading rehabilitation providers supporting the creation and deployment of the study, with the goal to obtain vital data and feedback that will be used to shape the future of telehealth for patients and providers.

COVID-19 has been a catalyst to many changes in healthcare, including the expansion of telehealth in rehabilitation.

“This virus has been a catalyst to many changes in all of healthcare, including the expansion of virtual visits via telehealth. The study will focus on the experiences of rehabilitation patients and providers during the pandemic and will further inform how telehealth rehab services are performed in the future,” said Dr. Raine Osborne, Director of Research at Brooks Rehabilitation and study co-principal investigator.

Without the ability to treat patients in person, the continuity of patient care has been put at risk. Rehabilitation professionals express concern over the loss of vital touch points needed to facilitate patient treatment and progress, as barriers like a lack of appropriate technology or access to telehealth portals prove to be immediate hurdles. Historically, telehealth has hit a myriad of roadblocks due to regulatory and reimbursement issues. The pandemic has pushed through the necessity for innovation in patient care via virtual platforms, and this timely study will provide insight into the widespread, vital changes needed in order to continue to advance rehabilitation care.

“Many previously perceived barriers of telehealth have become invalidated, and patients and providers are seeing benefits of these services. Virtual services will continue to become an expectation of innovative healthcare and provide consumers with the access and convenience that they are looking for from their healthcare services,” said Emily Rumery, OTD and Virtual Services Coordinator for Madonna Rehabilitation Hospitals.

Virtual visits serve as an innovative means to interact with patients in a way that reduces personal protective equipment utilization amid a national shortage, as well as decreases exposure to COVID-19. Information gleaned from the study will further elevate safety for patients and providers, as well as build on the foundational methods for virtual care facilities like Mary Free Bed Rehabilitation Hospital have been working on in recent years.

“Since we started on this journey four years ago, we have put processes in place to integrate telehealth workflow into existing patient care, so it did not become ‘one more thing.’ The education we provided the medical staff, other clinicians and patient service coordinators really helped when we flipped the switch to virtual outpatient services during the first wave of the pandemic. The foundation was already there,” said Jason Peoples, co-principal investigator, Director of Technology and Innovation, Mary Free Bed Rehabilitation Hospital.

“Critical to this research is identifying barriers that need to be overcome to ensure individuals of all abilities, including those with limited movement and speech capacity, can use telehealth fully,” said Dr. Judith Burnfield, co-principal investigator, and Director of Madonna Rehabilitation Hospitals‘ Institute for Rehabilitation Science and Engineering.

Results will provide essential information that will help drive the creation of telehealth resources for patients and shape the way telehealth is executed in rehabilitation. In addition, findings will support initiatives and legislation needed in order to meet the needs of patients and providers nationwide.

The survey will target rehabilitation patients and providers who have received and delivered care since the pandemic was first declared by President Trump on March 11, 2020. Data is anticipated to be available early 2021.

Airbiquity Launches OTAmatic Vehicle Configurator to Help Automakers Manage Connected Vehicle Software

New offering allows automakers to control the number of software versions in vehicles, better understand the state of entire fleets

Airbiquity®, the global leader of connected vehicle services, today launched its OTAmatic® Vehicle Configurator, a tool for defining and managing connected vehicle software. The OTAmatic Vehicle Configurator gives automakers insight into the exact hardware and software configurations within a vehicle, manage known combinations of electronic control units (ECUs) and software versions in vehicles, and meet emerging government compliance requirements for type certified vehicle systems.

In recent years, the number of vehicle ECUs receiving software updates via over-the-air (OTA) technology has been steadily increasing, making it difficult for automakers to track and manage software configurations across their fleets. As these ECUs receive OTA software updates over time, different software permutations will appear in the field as not all vehicles will be updated at the same time. This results in a multitude of software combinations which need to be tracked and managed by the automaker for vehicle maintenance and regulatory compliance.

The OTAmatic Vehicle Configurator gives automakers the power to address these issues and better control the software configurations in their vehicles. The OTAmatic Vehicle Configurator:

  • Deploys software only in approved combinations. Minimizes unanticipated issues by ensuring software contained in tens to hundreds of independent ECUs in a vehicle are limited to prevalidated configurations tested and approved by automakers.
  • Provides a breakdown of vehicles in the field. Reports the exact version of software and hardware installed in vehicles so automakers can understand the state of their vehicle fleets.
  • Displays a history of vehicle configurations. Allows automakers to compare configurations for vehicle lines or individual vehicles to understand changes over time.
  • Works with Airbiquity’s OTAmatic software management system. Configuration candidates can automatically be created from factory feeds of newly manufactured vehicles or by importing Bill of Materials (BOMs) using a web-based tool, then provided to automakers for review and approval. Configurations can also be provided for review when a vehicle reports a new combination from the field.
  • Works with non-Airbiquity OTA software management systems. Existing OTA systems can be enhanced by Vehicle Configurator integration using supplied APIs.
  • Enables regulatory compliance for tracking type certified vehicle systems. Allows automakers to record the software (RXSWIN) associated with the type certification of a vehicle system and supports UNECE (WP.29) requirements for tracking software updates.

“At Airbiquity, we’re constantly assessing the challenges automakers face and applying our software technology and expertise to address them,” said Keefe Leung, Vice President of Product Management at Airbiquity. “Automakers need to actively understand and manage their connected vehicle software. Our Vehicle Configurator is a powerful tool to bridge disparate pieces of software information based on the context provided by automakers while also delivering automation that integrates to their existing processes.”

“With the ubiquitous deployment of OTA software update capabilities automakers face a challenge in managing software configurations across a wide range of vehicle platforms, components, and markets,” said Alex Oyler, Head of Car IT at SBD Automotive. “To meet emerging regulatory requirements automakers must know which vehicles are running which software versions at all times. Automakers must also prove to regulatory agencies that they have control over their connected ecosystem, and without a high-integrity platform for managing this information they will face regulatory backlash and preventable cybersecurity challenges.”

COVID-19 Sparks Boom in Digital Hospitals with Smart Technologies, Improving Quality of Care

Digital hospitals enhance patient care and improve healthcare staff’s efficiency and productivity, finds Frost & Sullivan

Frost & Sullivan’s recent analysis, Digital Hospitals: Creating Growth Opportunities in Patient Care during the COVID-19 Pandemic and Beyond, finds that digital hospitals that deploy smart technologies, such as artificial intelligence (AI), remote health monitoring, and robotics, deliver higher standards of patient care and hassle-free experiences for health professionals. The adoption of such advanced technologies has witnessed strong traction during the COVID-19 pandemic.  There is a massive influx of patients, and traditional hospitals are struggling to provide quality care and ensure health professionals’ safety. Technology adoption is expected to rise further in the next two to three years due to higher-quality care and significant productivity gains.

“Digital hospitals address limitations of traditional providers such as centralized care delivery, closed systems, fee-for-service care models and a reactive approach through decentralized care, interoperable systems, and outcome-driven and proactive approaches,” said Neeraj Nitin Jadhav, Technical Insights Senior Research Analyst at Frost & Sullivan. “To improve patients’ satisfaction levels at every step of care delivery during their stay in the facility, digital hospitals are using technologies like hospital navigation, intelligent imaging platforms, medical robots, remote patient monitoring tools, medication management applications, communication tools, electronic health record (EHR) applications, and clinical decision support solutions.”

Jadhav added: “Digital hospital operators need to focus on building internal architecture, especially staff workstations and patient rooms that follow evidence-based design (EBD), as these are the areas where clinical decisions are made and care is provided, respectively. Additionally, decentralized healthcare staff workstations outside the patient rooms can allow the staff to be closer to the point of care rather than a centralized area, which increases the travel distance for the health professionals.”

The increasing adoption of digital technologies in hospitals presents immense growth prospects for market participants in the digital hospital space, including:

  • Deploying smart patient tracking systems to manage patient flow, treatment progress, discharge, and other hospital processes.
  • Proper training and implementation of EHRs can improve a hospital’s ability to provide high-quality care and address health disparities in the population.
  • Use of AI to make supply chain management more sophisticated as the algorithms process huge volumes of hospital data to identify trends and provide insights to improve the facilities’ efficiency and quality of care.
  • Analyze data obtained from different hospital departments to empower local healthcare teams.

Digital Hospitals: Creating Growth Opportunities in Patient Care during the COVID-19 Pandemic and Beyond is the latest addition to Frost & Sullivan’s Technical Insights research and analyses available through the Frost & Sullivan Leadership Council, which helps organizations identify a continuous flow of growth opportunities to succeed in an unpredictable future.
