Problem

The problem addresses SDG 11 and supports Disaster Risk Reduction to flooding and other events that makes cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, resilient, and sustainable. Planning and mitigation strategies need to incorporate cutting edge mobile medical technologies that will build human capacity and enable cities to become more resilient to disasters.

}

Solution

We developed a mobile, telemedical response system that supports Disaster Risk Reduction. The technologies can be deployed and utilized in a variety of ways. Medical kits can be pre-positioned and/ or transported via drone technologies to provide aerial reconnaissance, aid in preparing populations for potential disaster, and bring medical resources to the area. Through the power of telemedicine, we guide affected individuals building human capacity to take life-saving actions.

Target Beneficiaries

Rising sea levels, changing disease vectors and displaced human populations have placed many urban populations in developing nations at risk of disease, food security, and economic and political stability. The knowledge and capabilities offered through HiRO technologies enhance the resiliency of people and governments.

Mission and Vision

HiRO Telemedical Systems are mobile technologies that empower individuals with knowledge and expand human capacity to engage life-saving actions and reduce disaster risk in urban populations and developing countries. With the rise of climate change worldwide, these technologies can make communities and populations more resilient and better prepared to deal with disasters and remote/rural emergencies.

Innovation Description

HiRO technologies incorporate advanced generation drones, augmented and virtual reality, and predictive proprietary software. Kits deployed into a disaster situation include resources (medicines and life-saving medical countermeasures), vaccines and other products specifically contextually tailored. "Smart glasses" included in the kits facilitate holographic technology guided remotely by experts. For example, in a medical disaster, holographic technology through wireless video connection allows the physician to observe the disaster scene and direct care through a hands-free motion-enabled augmented reality headset.


Competitive Advantage

This is a unique and novel solution that has already garnered international interest. The mobile solutions leverage existing cutting edge technologies. HiRO Technologies utilize:

·   Deployment on drones and other autonomous vehicles

·   Layered guidance technologies to support the bystander

·   Layered technologies to support the medical provider

·   Proprietary virtual, interactive electronic health record environment

·   Proprietary, predictive analytics software (artificial intelligence)

·   Proprietary inventory tracking

·   Proprietary diagnostic trending


  

Planned Goals and Milestones

HiRO Telemedical Systems is scheduled to participate in two upcoming, large-scale events with US federal and state agencies to continue to refine technologies. Our target is to get to market early 2019.
