Vitalchat has received a new patent from the US Patent and Trademark Office for its patient monitoring and bandwidth conservation features within the artificial intelligence (AI)-enabled E-Sitter software.
The software consists of a server, a user device and an in-room monitoring device, which picks up on movement and voice cues.
Vitalchat’s newly patented features include video analytics and bandwidth preservation, which enable hospitals to significantly cut network requirements while allowing nurses and providers to monitor up to 100 rooms simultaneously.
The video analytics feature leverages edge computing for monitoring patients and hospital spaces for movement and voice cues, transferring metadata around the clock.
Vitalchat devices stay operational during emergencies with roll-over bandwidth technology.
Vitalchat co-founder, CTO and patent inventor Ghafran Abbas said: “A patent gives added credibility to our AI-driven technologies already defining the hospital room of the future.

“As TV kits replace nursing carts and telehealth becomes the standard in inpatient care, these features will help providers and caregivers oversee vastly more patients in much less time while offering a reliable alternative to overstretched networks that are reliant on video.”
Hospitals and clinics across the country harness the power of Vitalchat’s virtual sitter and virtual visit technologies to bridge care gaps, improve efficiencies and human interactions.
Vitalchat co-founder and CEO Alan Pitt said: “The stakes have never been higher for hospital systems to rein in costs while also improving the patient experience. This is a solution that can get them there.”
