Vecna develops and markets innovative health care solutions in the fields of infection control, patient safety, patient self-service, and robotics.
The US CDC estimates that 1.7 million patients are infected every year by health care acquired infections with 99,000 dying from such infections. The aim of Vecna’s QC PathFinder infection control software is to magnify the efforts of hospital infection preventionists through increased data visibility, automated alerts, and fast reporting both internally and to external public health agencies.
Vecna’s patient self-service line includes health care kiosks and patient portals. These solutions automate many previously manual workflows including check-in, registration, bill pay, and surveys. A kiosk integrated with vitals capture devices can capture weight, temperature, blood pressure, pulse, and blood oxygenation.
The Battlefield Extraction Assist Robot (BEAR) was created to extract wounded soldiers from the battlefield. It is a humanoid robot designed to lift up to 500 lbs and has been developed for the U.S. Department of Defense.
