Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the number of patients that currently need care outnumbers the number of healthcare professionals.

Telehealth addresses these challenges by enabling medical professionals to use early outpatient COVID-19 detection and monitoring with the help of new technology.
The HBKiCare platform uses inexpensive off-the-shelf wearable devices and SURE Universal's software IoT platform to monitor patients at home both before and after treatment for COVID-19. It provides continuous monitoring of vital signs, such as, body temperature, blood oxygen, respiratory rate, heart rate, and even ECG, which comprise an essential COVID-19 monitoring protocol. All the devices have FDA or CE Medical certification and the software delivers routine as well as smart AI-based recommendations to doctors regarding patients' medical conditions.
