Ichilov Hospital inaugurates facility with biometric self check-in
The Jerusalem Post reports that Israel President Isaac Herzog and Prime Minister Yair Lapid participated in the opening of the Sylvan Adams Emergency Hospital in late July.
The new ER features face biometrics for digital self-registration and a self-triage tool enabling patients to check their own blood pressure, temperature, pulse and blood oxygen saturation levels prior to being assigned a medical professional for treatment.
Sylvan Adams will also see mobile robots assisting patients in navigating the emergency department and departments outside the facility.
The technologies will reportedly help medical professionals streamline patient assessment, reduce waiting times, and deliver more efficient and effective medical care provision.
According to the Post, the in-patient hall counts 100 monitored beds, the largest number in an ER in the country.
