Human error is something we all share. It happens in every country, in every field of activity. Inevitably, it also happens in medical facilities. According to statistical data, in Europe 8–12 percent of all hospitalizations are affected by human error that can possibly endanger the patient's life. In 2018 a survey conducted by Merritt Hawkins found that 78 percent of doctors in medical institutions were directly affected by some human error, 18 percent noted that the error was serious and affected the health of their patients. 11 percent of respondents admitted that due to this error, inappropriate medical treatment was prescribed.
Wave H is a device based on an artificial intelligence system that offers medical institutions the automation of auscultation and diagnosis, possibly reducing the risk of human error and the number of patient visits to diagnostic institutions, as well as saving medical resources.
