Project acronymEMMA
Public project titleEMMA – Emergency Clinical Support
A one-line project descriptionEMMA minimizes physicians burnout on Emergency Departments by providing optimized patients’ triage and monitor.  
Project description A major issue, identified in the healthcare systems today, is the overcrowding of the Emergency Department (ED). A phenomenon which was amplified during the Covid-19 pandemic, and is directly responsible for patient harm and health system dysfunction. Our solution introduces a Clinical Decision Support System, which aims to tackle this problem. Vidavo has developed a wearable device, EMMA, enabling real-time recording of blood oxygen saturation, respiration and heart rate and body temperature, utilizing the advantages of edge computing, ensuring data privacy, security while minimizing latency. Combined with Vidavo’s Vida24© web and mobile applications, which are CE class II.a certified chronic disease management solution, EMMA assists ED personnel to triage incoming patients more effectively. It creates a probabilistic framework to inform clinicians on the prediction estimates (in the form of probabilities) of a patient to need hospitalization and to be admitted in the ICU, creating a critical stratification of patients, a support algorithm that, simply put, saves lives. In addition, the system estimates the duration of hospitalization needed per patient (based on patients’ demographics if available, using ML algorithms), which allows for more efficient hospital resource management. EMMA mobile application is used by the Healthcare personnel to register and monitor patients’ medical condition or connect with hospital’s EHR systems, whereas the web application offers insights and statistics about patients’ medical data and analytics regarding patients’ waiting time, hospitalizations, and ICU admissions. Lastly, EMMA offers 3 levels of integration, so it can be easily integrated to HosmartAI common open Integration Platform, adding value to the HosmartAI project.
