Contactless COVID-19 centre opens at BKT’s Bhuj plant
BKT has set up one of the first-ever contactless E-ICU, COVID-19 treatment facilities to be built in India outside of a hospital. The centre is located at the tyre maker’s Bhuj site, and its doctor and eight healthcare workers are responsible for treating workers and their families affected by coronavirus.
Built within just three weeks, the unit has according to BKT the “most advanced medical technology” and is set up for remote patient monitoring, data analytics on diagnostics and medicine management, high-flow oxygen machines, remote consultations using augmented reality, data availability across the globe for e-consults through Cloud monitoring systems and AI enabled X Ray imaging.
“At a time, such as this, corporate social responsibility is more important than ever. We must take care, protect, support and help each other. We are trying to do this in India and in the world through initiatives realised by our branches in Italy and in the United States of America. We need positive messages, commitment, solidarity, and triumph of Human spirit,” says Arvind Poddar, chairman and managing director of BKT.
