Since the start of the covid19 related health crisis, all international health actors have been mobilised and taking concrete action to curb this global pandemic. With the introduction of vaccination, the laboratories that develop vaccines are receiving the most media coverage.
But other companies are proposing solutions to help fight the epidemic. This is notably the case in the fields of masks and personal protection, sterilisation, hospital waste management, remote patient monitoring and e-health.
A census of French companies
It is within this particular framework that the French Healthcare Association is compiling a list of French companies that offer proven solutions that can be implemented to help manage this crisis on a global scale (manufacturers, healthcare institutions, research and training institutes, professional organisations, etc.). This list, which is regularly updated, is available on the association’s website. E-takescare is included with the Tucky patch thermometer.
Focus on 4 French and Spanish e-health solutions
With this in mind, we present 4 companies offering e-health solutions that can be used to combat covid19.
A telemedicine booth
H4D has developed a global solution for remote consultation around the first connected medical booth, the Consult Station. This solution supports all the dimensions necessary for the implementation of a professional medical practice in teleconsultation. With this solution, H4D acts against coronavirus by installing booths in the emergency services for orientation and teleconsultation to support caregivers. The consult stations can also be set up in health centres with the Red Cross or in isolated villages to monitor patients.
A diagnostic platform
Intrasense has created and markets a unique medical device: Myrian®. It is a software platform that facilitates and secures diagnosis, decision-making and therapeutic monitoring. In the context of the pandemic, Intrasense has developed a solution dedicated to the scanner management of covid19.
