System for Avoiding Adverse Events to the HIMSS Convention in New Orleans,
March 3-7, 2013
Demonstrations will be held at the EarlySense booth, #4719
NEW ORLEANS & WALTHAM, Mass. -- March 4, 2013
EarlySense Ltd., the market leader in Proactive Patient Care Solutions™,
announced today that it will be demonstrating the company’s contact-free,
continuous, patient safety monitoring solution at the Healthcare Information
and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) trade show this week at the Ernest N.
Morial Convention Center in New Orleans, March 3 -7, 2013. Attendees are
invited to visit the EarlySense exhibit at booth #4719.
“The EarlySense System has made a significant and positive difference in the
nurses’ workflow at the hospital. Nurses save time ‘hooking up’ patients to
the system because it is contact-free, which obviously also increases the
comfort level of the patient. The system based design of this solution allows
for our caregivers to be notified of a potentially adverse condition long
before the situation becomes life threatening. In today’s environment, we are
looking at each and every bed in our institution as a critical care
environment. Patients are more complex and require more vigilance in
monitoring than ever before. The EarlySense System allows us to have this
capability. It is designed for the environment in which it is used, and
therefore alarms appropriately, and provides information about patients in a
timely manner,” said Timothy Quigley, RN, MBA, Vice President of Nursing
Services and Chief Nursing Officer at South Shore Hospital in South Weymouth,
Mr. Quigley continued, “Knowing that the patient is always monitored and that
the system will alert if a parameter is crossed makes the patients, their
families, and the nursing staff feel comfortable. It also helps us to more
proactively and efficiently treat our patients, avoid adverse events, save
lives, and ultimately save the hospital money.”
Tim O’Malley, President of EarlySense Inc., said, “The EarlySense System
brings a unique ‘systems’ capability to the MedSurg environment by eliminating
the need for the usual overly burdensome technology interfaces. In addition,
the multiple ready interfaces, to EMR as well as mobile devices and mobile
phones, allow clinicians real-time, personalized alerts, empowering real-time
intervention with minimal alarm fatigue. We invite you to visit us at our
booth and learn about the many benefits of the EarlySense system first hand.”
EarlySense has brought to market an innovative technology designed to advance
proactive patient care and enable clinicians to achieve better patient
outcomes, by assisting in preventing adverse events from occurring through the
early identification of deterioration. The company’s flagship product, the
EarlySense System, is a continuous, contact-free, patient safety monitoring
solution that monitors and documents a patient’s vital signs and movement
using a sensor that is placed underneath a bed mattress. There are no leads or
cuffs to connect to the patient who has complete freedom of movement and is
not burdened by any cumbersome attachments. The system was initially designed
to monitor non-ICU ‘lower risk’ patients on medical surgical floors who are
usually monitored by nursing staff approximately once every four hours. The
system is currently installed at hospitals and rehabilitation centers in the
USA and Europe. It is also commercially available in Canada. EarlySense Inc.
is headquartered in Waltham, MA. Investors include: JK&B, Pitango Venture
Capital, Etgar Challenge Fund, ProSeed VC Fund (TASE: PRSD), Docor
International Management, Noaber, and Bridge Investment Fund, and Peter
Soderberg, managing partner of Worthy Ventures Resources, LLC and former
president and CEO of Hill-Rom Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: HRC). For additional
