Modern healthcare operating rooms are cumbersome, especially in the current pandemic of Coronavirus (COVID-19) to manage the safety and security of the patients and the staff. Conditions in a modern operating room are like, a patient’s medical diagnosis or x-ray or the MRI images are the vital resources to be considered. In general, the doctors are impelled to scrub out their hands every time they scroll through or examine the images in mid-operation. To avoid departing the operating table, several doctors put their faith in assistants or nurses and ask to examine the system that can be clumsy and disappointing and can rise the gathering in the room itself. To overcome this problem and emphasizing the use of the touchless smart healthcare system in medical diagnosis we have developed an application for the same. We propose and demonstrate a gesture and speech-based system to help staff to deal with such critical conditions. The proposed system is composed of two main parts: the healthcare operating software and sensor Microsoft Kinect. Test results conclude the efficiency of the viewing system in terms of time complexity, and the value and the safety of the recording system have increased.
