Rambam Healthcare Campus in Israel has begun using repurposed Elbit Systems Command and Control (C2) technology to help manage its medical staff and patients.

A team from Rambam and Elbit worked together to repurpose the technology and apply it to a healthcare setting, creating EX-TEAMS.

EX-TEAMS is a cloud-based application that medical staff can install on their devices. This allows for a 24/7 real-time picture of all operations across the healthcare campus and allows staff to immediately contact each other. The tool can also be used to speed up paperwork processing.

Elbit Systems C4I & Cyber general manager said Haim Delmar: “We are proud to be in a position to apply advanced and proven battlefield technological capabilities in order to improve the operations of medical centres and additional organizations that stand in the frontlines of the fight against the Coronavirus. I thank Rambam’s team for the cooperation.”

Elbit said EX-TEAMS can be deployed anywhere within a matter of days and requires no changes to local IT infrastructure to work.
