Texas Hospital Association brings AI monitoring to hospitals statewide

The Texas Hospital Association will encourage the adoption of artificial intelligence-powered autonomous patient monitoring by hospitals and health systems across the state as part of the organization's new partnership with Care.ai.

Together THA and Care.ai, an autonomous monitoring platform, will host demonstrations in Austin for Texas providers to see how the technology works in a simulated hospital environment.

Care.ai's "Self Aware Room" platform uses AI to monitor patients' conditions and provide care teams with real-time updates.

"Texas hospitals have always been trailblazers when it comes to the use and adoption of leading-edge healthcare technology," Fernando Martinez, PhD, president and CEO of the THA Foundation, said in a March 4 news release sent to Becker's. "Through this new partnership with Care.ai, Texas hospitals will have the opportunity to experience the use of AI in a hands-on local lab environment. They will get to see in real time the value that autonomous monitoring can bring to their facilities. We're proud to connect our members to cutting-edge technologies that have a transformative impact on healthcare delivery in Texas."
