UHN's Halo is an innovative technology developed at University Health Network (UHN) designed to remotely monitor medically appropriate patients. It utilizes a portable camera and audio/visual unit, similar in size to an IV pole, which is placed at the patient's bedside and can be moved around the room as needed.
Tele-monitoring provides a safe, non-intrusive, and efficient method of remotely monitoring patients, enhancing their safety, providing peace of mind, and optimizing healthcare resources.
UHN's Halo is currently used at 12 partner hospitals in 4 provinces with more than 7,000 patients monitored so far
Through a secure livestream using propriety technology, trained tele-monitoring technicians remotely monitor patients. This technology helps in the quick identification of changes in a patient's condition, allowing for immediate appropriate actions to be taken.
