AITX subsidiary RAD announces healthcare market expansion

DETROIT – Robotic Assistance Devices, Inc. (RAD), a wholly owned subsidiary of Artificial Intelligence Technology Solutions, Inc. (AITX) has announced updated progress in its healthcare vertical.

The company completed installation of ROSA-P units at a 100-plus-bed acute care facility, the largest hospital deployment to date for the company. The beneficiary is a sizable regional hospital group within a larger healthcare group that has more than 600 locations. ROSA (Responsive Observation Security Agent) is a company, self-contained and portable security and communication solution with AI-driven security analytics that include human, firearm, vehicle detection, and license plate recognition among other features.

This marks the inaugural deployment of the large-scale RAD Light My Way deployment. Hospital staff were given the choice of an additional armed guards or ROSAs with RAD Light My Way and the AITX notes that they overwhelmingly chose the ROSAs. “The Healthcare vertical is one of the inspirations for several of our inventions, and RAD Light My Way was conceived after listening to the needs of this industry,” said Steve Reinharz, CEO of AITX and RAD. “Staff members have shared with me that they often feel vulnerable walking to and from their cars at night. RAD Light My Way will provide them with much-needed peace of mind, while the ROSA-P units feed real-time details of the conditions to security personnel who are monitoring the area as well as instant at-the-edge response.”

Data from the FBI has found that parking lots are the third most common place for assaults, abductions and homicides. The International Association for Healthcare Security and Safety projected as much as 70 percent of armed robberies and 56 percent of rape incidents involving healthcare workers occurred in parking or nearby areas.

“In addition to the hospital network referred to in this press release, we are potentially bringing six additional healthcare networks with over 500,000 employees and over 3,000 facilities through the sales process,” noted Mark Folmer, president of RAD. “Next week, we roll out the first deployment for an even bigger healthcare client who is starting with several ROSAs. It’s feasible that RAD could deploy upwards of 150 devices specifically at healthcare clients within the next 12 months.”
