Coronavirus: Israeli Doctors Volunteer to give medical instruction to people under isolation worldwide

The Israeli organization Innonation has launched a social project that provides interactive medical instruction by doctors from the largest hospitals in Israel via video to people affected by the Coronavirus.

The Israeli organization Innonation, which specializes in cross-border initiatives between talents, companies and organizations, has launched a social project that will provide interactive medical instruction via video to people affected by the Coronavirus. The initiative will target people in China, Japan, South Korea, Italy, the U.S., Israel and dozens of other countries who are currently experiencing quarantines or fear going to clinics and hospitals over concerns about contracting the Coronavirus.

So far doctors from major hospitals in Israel – Sheba, Ichilov, Rambam, Wolfson and Soroka – have joined the initiative. More than 100 doctors have volunteered to participate in the online instruction effort. In addition, technology companies that supply access to practical technology and medical databases are taking part and contribute useful medical products. INNONATION has already started to operate broadcast stations at all the participating hospitals, following a successful pilot at the company’s facility in Tel Aviv.

During one of the pilot broadcasts that was directed at China, Dr. Rachel Libenson Vansh, a primary care doctor at the Clalit Health Fund, discussed tips for safeguarding one’s health during confinement to the home and how to guarantee proper hygiene. After her discussion, Dr. Libenson answered viewers’ questions in English with the answers translated during the broadcast into Chinese. The Chinese participants viewed the broadcast with the use of a Zoom system and through the Weibo social network, that is China’s version of Twitter.

The planned broadcasts will include among other subjects: family and children, dermatology including sensitivity resulting from the wearing of protective masks), diet, psychology (as well as dealing with anxieties), pregnancy, signs of serious illness that require immediate attention and additional relevant topics.

Amit Gal-Or, one of the founders of the organization, said: “The health systems in countries affected by the Coronavirus are under tremendous pressure. They find it difficult to deal with the medical needs of people living under quarantine and with the general population that fears going to clinics and hospitals. This Israeli volunteer initiative will provide them with the necessary know how to deal with the daily medical difficulties that currently are not being met. The technology bridges the medical gap in these countries, while the recruitment of Israeli medical institutions and the impressive volunteering of the best doctors in Israel help realize this project and meet the tremendous demand for the necessary medical knowledge.”

Established in 2016 as an innovation platform was set up by the Gal-Or family (Amir Gal-Or and his sons Raz and Amit).
