ICU Digitisation

An ambitious digitisation project that will not only improve the care of seriously ill COVID-19 patients, but also reduce the risk of infection to hospital staff, is being launched at the South African Cape Town-based Tygerberg Hospital.

A partnership between Stellenbosch University and Western Cape Provincial Health hopes that this project will contribute towards improved care for patients with COVID-19, as well as a safer working environment for health care workers in the ICU environment.

The bill, which was submitted by Government to Parliament at the beginning of this year, is poised to completely prohibit the consumption of alcohol if driving.
