Automation Anywhere to support Covid-19 response

By Chloe Kent

Robotic process automation company Automation Anywhere has announced that it is collaborating with Northampton General Hospital in the UK to automate the monitoring and reporting of the centre’s Covid-19 oxygen supply.

The hospital has two large oxygen tanks that supply its ventilation machines. Monitoring them has, until now, been a manual process, requiring hospital staff to log into an internal system and physically collect each reading from the tanks.

Automation Anywhere has developed and implemented a software bot to increase the speed and frequency of this reporting and reduce the risk of error. The process is now automated, extracting the data and calculating flow rates to monitor oxygen levels 24 hours a day without human intervention.

Northampton General Hospital chief information officer Hugo Matais said: “Automating the collection and sharing of this data has given valuable hours back and increased confidence that we can offer the best level of patient care.”
