UF Innovate | The Hub resident client SmartSteward, Inc., a digital health company focused on advanced infection control and antibiotic stewardship software for skilled nursing facilities, is releasing new antimicrobial surveillance and an alert system called SmartSteward EYE™.
In response to the current COVID-19 global outbreak, the company has modified its existing surveillance system, which was focused on identifying multi-drug resistant organisms (MDROs), to include new algorithms for the early detection of respiratory viruses. This new surveillance system will track laboratory testing as well as patient symptoms and clinical observations to detect potentially dangerous bacterial and viral outbreaks in real-time. The system will send alerts to local healthcare teams to help them limit the spread of these infections throughout the facility. In addition, a heat map will display the location and movement of potential outbreaks within the facility.Learn more about SmartSteward Inc.
