COSA in Neonatal Intensive Care Unit

Video Analitik and Argeist propose an innovative, technological and effective medical-business solution to prevent the spread of infections in Neonatal Intensive Care Units. Intensive care units are among the clinics where nosocomial infections are most common in hospitals. The level of nosocomial infections is considered as the most important metric for the quality of care in Neonatal Intensive Care Units. Unless the necessary measures are taken to keep it below an acceptable limit the consequences are severe. Besides being an important health problem in all parts of the world, infection also causes prolongation of hospital stays in the intensive care units and hospitals increasing morbidity, mortality and treatment costs, becoming an equally important business/economy problem.
