EarlySense InSight

Shenzhen Lachesis Mhealth, which is a China-based developer and sister company of leading medical corporation United Imaging Healthcare (UIH), has integrated EarlySense’s InSight contactless monitoring technology into its new Intelligent Hospital Ward Solution, EarlySense has announced.

Lachesis’ Intelligent Hospital Ward Solution provides a complete suite of technologies that enable an advanced and streamlined healthcare flow to deliver more efficient and improved medical services. The platform includes a closed-loop infusion management system, intelligent diagnosis and treatment assistant, nurse digital assistant device, nurse information system, IoT management and a variety of patient monitoring sensors. With the addition of EarlySense, real-time cardiac and respiratory data and notifications will be relayed to the nurses’ station, as well as handheld devices and other remote viewing displays within the facility.

“The need to continuously monitor post-acute care patients is growing, and we are pleased to collaborate with leading smart sensor developer EarlySense on a solution that will prove essential to both patients and healthcare staff across the region,” Shuangquan Zhu, CEO of Shenzhen Lachesis Mhealth, said in a statement. “Our platform combines wireless sensing technology and advanced analytics to create a seamless, end-to-end solution for safe, cost-effective monitoring of general care patients.”

EarlySense’s patented sensor is designed to be placed under a bed mattress from where it can accurately and continuously monitor patient heart rate, respiratory rate and movement without ever touching the patient. Leveraging advanced algorithms that analyze two patient data points per second, the solution assists healthcare teams with early detection of patient deterioration, helping to prevent adverse events, including code blues, patient falls and pressure ulcers.

“China is a key market in our global strategy and we look forward to working together to provide best-in-class solutions to one of the world’s largest markets, and to positively impacting healthcare in the region,” Yfat Scialom, VP of International Sales and Marketing of EarlySense, said in a statement.

Earlier this year, EarlySense has struck partnership with American Well to provide smart sensor-powered telehealth services. Also, the company has teamed-up with Samsung to launch the Korean-branded version of its sleep tracker.
