Welcome to the future: AI-powered ‘super nurse’ now monitoring patients

A new “super nurse” designed using AI technology, advanced sensors and cameras is now collecting patient data at Israel’s Tel Aviv Sourasky Medical Center.

The AI assistant is currently being used for a trial run at the hospital—with consent being collected from each patient it interacts with—but it could soon do more if viewed as a success. Ahuva Weiss-Meilik, head of the hospital’s I-Medata center, spoke with ISRAEL21c about this latest development, noting how helpful it can be to have additional resources for performing these tasks.

“No doctor, no matter how good he or she is, would be able to look at all this data and gain immediate insight,” Weiss-Meilik said. “AI testing will eventually be a part of all hospital admissions in the future.”

According to ISRAEL21c, I-Medata researchers are exploring ways to use AI for predicting a patient’s entire “medical trajectory” and determining when someone needs “extra attention” from healthcare providers.
