Lumenix, The Ottawa Hospital (TOH), and The Ottawa Hospital Research Institute (OHRI) in Canada have partnered to use artificial intelligence (AI) to improve patient care and hospital operations.
Initially, TOH will install Lumenix’s AI system, called the Artificially Intelligent Monitoring System (AIMS), in its Civic Campus in the fourth quarter of 2023.
AIMS leverages 3D scanning and neural networks to understand and forecast human behaviour, thereby helping healthcare professionals prevent problems before they happen.
The second phase of the deployment will see the expansion of the system’s use across the hospital, focusing on patient safety and supporting healthcare workers.
AIMS is a ceiling-mounted device that analyses clinical environments and human behaviours using deep learning.
It provides data to help with decision-making and enhances patient care while ensuring data security.

According to a press statement, the installation will cover a large clinical area and assist clinicians, nurses, and staff in providing care.
AIMS claims to have the potential to reshape patient care. The partnership is said to be particularly advantageous at a time when the healthcare sector is facing resource shortages.
Lumenix CEO and chairman Scott Delaney said: “This collaboration with The Ottawa Hospital and The Ottawa Hospital Research Institute is the result of a shared commitment to healthcare innovation, marking a leap towards patient centricity through the synergy of ambient perceptual awareness, artificial intelligence and medical expertise.
“We are excited to harness our technology’s preventative capabilities and potential across a wide range of clinical scenarios including heightened operational insight, automated bedside monitoring, proactive fall prevention, and hand hygiene compliance to contribute to the quality of patient care and to support the tireless frontline care workers.”
Lumenix’s AIMS is already being deployed in Canada and the US and is available for hospitals and healthcare facilities.
This collaboration between Lumenix, TOH, and OHRI aims to advance AI in healthcare, improving precision in healthcare systems across the world.
