Collaboration helps hospitals to identify deteriorating patients
Digital health technology company, Isansys Lifecare, is teaming up with management solution provider, 42Gears, to further secure and manage its advanced patient monitoring system.
Isansys has developed the Patient Status Engine (PSE), a fully-certified CE Class IIa and FDA Class II patient monitoring platform which uses digital and wireless sensors to enable near-ICU-grade monitoring and advanced analytics of patient data.
The wearable sensors, including the Lifetouch ‘smart patch’ cardiac sensor and the Lifetemp continuous temperature sensor, automatically collect and analyse the patients’ heart rate, respiration rate, temperature, oxygen saturation levels and blood pressure in real-time.
If a patient’s health starts to deteriorate, the system will provide a warning to nursing staff so they can act on it immediately.
Now, with the support, knowledge and expertise of 42Gears Mobility Systems Pvt, Isansys can help healthcare professionals around the world by further enabling remote management of its patient monitoring devices through interoperability with electronic medical record systems and secure management of patient information.
Hospitals are seeking to deploy the PSE to rapidly increase capacity and numbers of higher-dependency beds and isolation wards in order to monitor ventilated patients and to use it to provide high-grade monitoring of patients at home or other locations outside the hospital itself
Keith Errey, chief executive of Isansys, said: “We are seeing a surge in orders for our Patient Status Engine (PSE) product as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Hospitals are seeking to deploy the PSE to rapidly increase capacity and numbers of higher-dependency beds and isolation wards in order to monitor ventilated patients and to use it to provide high-grade monitoring of patients at home or other locations outside the hospital itself.
“We are delighted to partner with 42Gears to provide a unified approach to endpoint security and management of our advanced patient monitoring devices and ensure both our valued customers can manage their patient data safely and securely. This will help drive down costs and provide better visibility of their patient’s healthcare status at all times.”
42Gears’ solution, SureMDM, ensures that the Isansys remote patient monitoring platform operates reliably and effectively within clinical workflows that place the patient at the centre, regardless of whether the patient is in a hospital or community setting.
The advanced features enable healthcare chief technology officers and IT administrators to install and maintain the Patient Status Engine and its wearable sensors with complete security and peace of mind.
Abhay Koranne, senior vice president of 42Gears, said: “Deploying a solution that can securely manage healthcare equipment in the hour of need is top priority here.
“There are a host of devices being used by healthcare professionals within the Patient Status Engine - recording patient data and monitoring patients’ health. Now, when healthcare professionals are pressed for time, it is vital these wireless devices are not only used to monitor health status automatically, continuously and in real-time, but are also secured and fixed remotely, if and whenever required. That is where our solution helps.”
