Vecna to Unveil New Version of QC Bot™ at Sidney Garfield Health Care Innovation Center

CAMBRIDGE, MA — Vecna will be demonstrating its QC Bot Version 2.0 health care assistance robot at Kaiser Permanente’s Sidney R. Garfield Health Care Innovation Center in San Leandro, CA on January 20th, 2011. QC Bot v2.0 is the first robot of its kind to truly focus on the needs of patients by combining automated delivery, patient self-service, and the latest in telepresent interaction with physicians and staff. Unlike any other delivery robots on the market today, QC Bot v2.0 is a versatile, zero-infrastructure mobile solution that leverages the advantages of process automation throughout the entire patient experience. QC Bot v2.0 seamlessly integrates with existing workflows and transforms hospital’s operations by automating time consuming and manual tasks such as patient check-in, registration, medication and supplies delivery. “We’re excited to showcase the immense potential of QC Bot’s advanced autonomous navigation and video conferencing technology towards changing the way people look at health care,” said Daniel Theobald, Vecna’s CTO. “Beginning with this clinical demo, QC Bot will bring tomorrow’s patient-centric care to today’s hospitals.”
