A health tech company from the Nashville Entrepreneur Center’s Project Healthcare has landed a partnership with Ohio-based artificial intelligence conglomerate Olive.
DARVIS, an acronym for Data Analytic Real-World Visual Intelligence System, offers technology that automates clinical workflow, from determining whether employees are wearing appropriate personal protective equipment to tracking the condition and availability of hospital beds throughout a facility. The AI-powered tech can also keep track of medical inventory and assess medical equipment sanitation.
The partnership will add DARVIS’ capabilities to Olive’s AI platform focused on operational efficiency, which is used across more than 600 hospitals in 41 states.
“We’re thrilled with our partnership with Olive — the future of health care sits at the core of AI technology,” DARVIS Co-Founder Jan Schlueter said in a press release. “Together, we’re revolutionizing manual processes and limiting administrative tasks so healthcare professionals can focus on their expertise and personal approach to ultimately provide the patient with an exceptional experience.”
DARVIS earlier this year moved its headquarters from San Francisco to MetroCenter after participating in the EC’s incubator program. The company also has international offices in Germany, the United Kingdom and Pakistan.
