The hospital downloads the Novarad COVID AI edge client software to a hospital computer or virtual machine. The COVID AI edge client automatically deploys and connects to Azure. It will print out connectivity instructions for sending images from a CT scanner or PACS system.
The CT studies are anonymized and securely routed to the AI engine on Azure to be analyzed.*
A secure 3000-bit encrypted optical access code is sent to the associated printer onsite. A report containing the probability of COVID-19 is then created.
The printed code can then be scanned and viewed from a mobile device or PC, then printed or downloaded as a .pdf.
The COVID AI client is built upon the Novarad CryptoChart solution that can also aid in the fight against COVID-19. Using highly secure optical codes, CryptoChart makes it possible to share images, reports and medical records as easily as sending a text message or email. It also eliminates the need to burn CDs or print paper records.
