Monitoring tool released, geared to reducing falls and readmissions
EarlySense has released InSight™, a new product line extension for skilled nursing facilities that want to reduce hospital readmissions and falls.
The vital sign monitoring tool allows providers to catch problems earlier, the company noted. InSight also provides advanced warning of cardiac and respiratory changes.
“Clinicians can detect patient deterioration early, as well as keep patient fall episodes to a minimum, resulting in fewer hospital readmissions and penalties. Additionally, facilities implementing our solution provide patients and their families a high level of confidence and peace of mind, knowing that clinical teams will be notified at an early sign of risk,” said Avner Halperin, CEO of EarlySense.
InSight has a contact-free sensor under a resident's mattress, which relays continuous data.
“Adoption of continuous monitoring by skilled nursing facilities will play an important role in discharge planning while strengthening relationships between hospitals and rehab facilities,” said Perry An, M.D., Chief Operating Officer, Division of Hospital Medicine at Newton-Wellesley Hospital in Newton, MA.
