SberHealth has created a “smart health camera” to assist patients and facilitate remote consultations with doctors, according to the company’s press service. The device increases the information content of online consultations and expands remote diagnostic capabilities.
A “smart health camera” is a device that allows the patient to independently perform an examination and transmit information to the doctor. Using the camera, you can take photographs or video recordings of the respiratory organs and skin. The device syncs with the SberHealth mobile app on your smartphone and transmits photos and videos to your doctor to evaluate your condition and make further recommendations.
“Today, telemedicine is becoming one of the drivers of the digitalization of the healthcare industry, and its popularity is growing at a double-digit pace year on year. Today we took another step towards our patients. “Every resident of the country can contact the on-duty therapist or pediatrician at SberHealth in a few minutes, transfer all images from the “smart camera” to the doctor and get instant advice and assistance,” said the Sberbank Health Industry Center.
According to statistics from SberHealth (part of the Sber healthcare industry), more than half of online visits to doctors are related to acute respiratory viral infections (ARVI) and their complications in ENT organs.
