Leading Healthcare into the Future

Applied IoT/AI Designer

KOGI Consulting Co. Ltd.

http://www.kogiconsulting.com/

Highlights

  • AI-powered diagnostics help train physicians and save patients time and energy when visiting the doctor
  • IoT-enabled informatics optimize workflow to minimize time spent on finding equipment, personnel and patients at hospitals and clinics across the Middle East
  • Integrated management allows healthcare providers and governments to keep track of mobile nurses and people in quarantine

With projects spanning four sectors, 27 countries and more than 80 institutions, KOGI Corporation is uniquely poised to address the complex design challenges vexing many of today’s organi-zations. As high-pressure and high-impact workplaces, hospitals are in particular need of creative technological solutions to not only optimize workflow, but to save lives.

AI diagnostics in a fraction of a second

According to a 2016 Johns Hopkins study, medical errors account for about 1/10th of all deaths in the United States, making it the nation’s third-leading cause of death overall. With such high stakes, relying on artificial — in addition to human — intelligence could save lives.

Trained on more than 1.2 billion data sets, KOGI’s cloud-based artificial intelligence (AI) diagnostic tool can read a test with an extremely high degree of accuracy  — all within one second.

Traditional diagnostics dictate that a patient must wait at least a few days before receiving results, requiring them to visit the hospital multiple times and increasing their risk of exposure to other maladies.

However, with AI-powered diagnos-tics, “the moment they go for the scan, within one second — to be precise, 0.35 seconds — the report is already out,” KOGI CEO Gavin Lee said. “Therefore, the patient only needs to make one trip.”

The tool can also help train new physicians to read diagnostic tests. For example, any junior radiologist can identify a tumor, “but the hard part is knowing whether it’s benign or malig-nant,” Lee said. With KOGI’s AI tool, trainees can instantly benefit from the knowledge of millions of experts to fine-tune their skill.

KOGI currently has AI diagnostics for 20 fields such as breast cancer and diabetes detection, and is working on developing more, with hospitals in Taiwan already enjoying the benefits.

IoT informatics help physicians locate anything — or anyone

Even before the COVID-19 pandemic complicated hospital logistics, healthcare institutions were already exceedingly complex. Equipment and personnel must constantly be on the move, ready to respond to each patient’s personalized and often urgent needs.

However, many hospitals are still reliant on paper records. For example, upwards of 10 nurses will often share the same piece of equipment, wheeling it to wherever it is needed and making it difficult for the next user to find.

Staff can also be difficult to locate: “It used to take maybe 10 or 20 minutes to locate even one person. You cannot imagine how hectic it is in hospitals. Imagine during the pandemic, everyone is rushing around — how can you locate one nurse?” Lee said.

This was the challenge facing a major Qatari medical service provider when KOGI was invited to implement their full-service Internet of Things (IoT) solu-tion. By integrating bluetooth low energy (BLE) location tracking, IoT networking and service flow analytics, staff can now easily decipher hospital workflow.

With just one glance at the Smart Ward dashboard behind the nursing sta-tion, staff can instantly locate assets and personnel to within 8 meters and identify areas where more assistance is needed.

“With this technology, it allows nurses to maximize their valuable time, not to waste it on things like [locating assets], but to focus on patients,” Lee said.

Sometimes, patients are the ones who go missing. If a patient with dementia becomes lost in the hos-pital, nurses no longer need to scour the building to find them, and will even receive an automatic alert if they approach an exit.

When KOGI installed this initial system in 2018, it was the first to deliver a full IoT solution to Qatar, earning Lee many invitations to return to the kingdom as a speaker at conferences and events. The achievement even caught the eye of the Qatar royal family, which invited Lee to establish a local firm, KOGI Technology W.L.L., to serve as a base for system integration and project maintenance in the region.

KOGI has now implemented its all-in-one IoT healthcare solution in countries across the Middle East, including Dubai, Kuwait, Oman and Saudi Arabia.

Secure location tracking fights medical waste and COVID-19

A key benefit of operating in diverse fields is the ability to adapt existing solutions to other applications. KOGI’s Corporate Employee Optimization (CEO) system has already earned praise from the firm’s corporate partners, but is now receiving attention from healthcare providers and even the World Economic Forum (WEF).

Using facial recognition and location confirmation, the CEO application can keep track of employees’ schedules and performance, all while ensuring greater data privacy than other comparable systems.

These features were attractive to home dialysis providers in the Middle East, whose analog system for tracking mobile nurses had long been rife with problems.

“There are really too many fake reports,” Lee said, as many home nurses would report inaccurate times, some-times taking an entire day to service one patient.

With the CEO app, the providers can be sure that their nurses are in the proper location, providing proper care.

And now amid the COVID-19 pan-demic, it is more important than ever for governments to be certain of quarantined patients’ location. Due to its enhanced privacy specifications, the CEO app has sparked interest from the WEF, which invited KOGI to demonstrate the app’s home quarantine capabilities.

Rapid service where it’s needed

As KOGI has their own team in the Middle East, they are not bound by the traditional model of sending specifica-tions to a local firm for implementation, allowing projects to be handled in a more timely manner than otherwise possible.

“We have our ground team, so we can take care of projects ourselves. There-fore, our ability to commit to a 48-hour response time is something that we can do, but not many others can from a ven-dor-level,” Lee said.

Healthcare providers already know that time is of the essence — now they can be sure that their information tech-nology provider is also up to the task.

Selling points:

  • Cloud-based AI diagnostic tool trained on 1.2 billion data sets provides results in 0.35 seconds for diagnostics in more than 20 areas, such as breast cancer detection
  • IoT-powered Smart Ward dashboard allows hospital staff to locate equipment, personnel and patients to within 8 meters and identify areas in need of optimization
  • Corporate Employee Optimization (CEO) app solves quarantine tracking issues without sacrificing privacy
  • Local subsidiary in Qatar allows for a 48-hour response time for clients in the Middle East
