Medical vital signs and health conditions monitoring

Powerful forces are changing the healthcare landscape.

Hospitals

Hospitals are under pressure to improve care while reducing costs and lowering readmission rates.

The elderly and chronically ill

The population of elderly and chronically ill patients worldwide is growing.

Pharmaceutical companies

Pharmaceutical companies want to go “Beyond the Pill and get closer to their patients and customers to become a trusted adviser and partner in the delivery of healthcare.

Medical tourism

Medical tourism is becoming more prevalent as increasing numbers of people travel from their home countries to obtain care.

Hospitals

The ATLASense Biomed patient remote monitoring solution can help hospitals reduce costs and lower the likelihood of readmission by enabling them to discharge patients sooner and continue monitoring them from home. Continuous out-of-hospital monitoring can detect changes to vital signs and conditions in real time, allowing treatment before the patient’s condition deteriorates and they need to be readmitted to the hospital.

In emergency medical treatment situations, the ATLASense Biomed solution can be used in the field or in-transit to immediately begin collection and transmission of vital signs data. This enables emergency care professionals to make timely and informed medical treatment decisions based on real-time data.

Elderly persons and chronically ill persons at home

Patient remote home monitoring provides added piece of mind to elderly and chronically ill patients, their loved ones and caregivers. Remote monitoring assures that serious or life threatening conditions or falls are detected and reported enabling rapid response. Remote home monitoring is also much more convenient for these patients as it can be inconvenient or difficult to travel to healthcare facilities for periodic checkups.

Pharmaceutical companies

Pharmaceutical companies can use patient remote monitoring to continuously monitor for physiological changes and trends in patients taking their medications. This allows companies to learn more about the efficacy and side effects of their medications, and go “Beyond the Pill” to maintain closer connections with their patients and customers. This can enable them to play a more central role in delivering care by working collaboratively with patients and their healthcare professionals.

In pharmaceutical trials, patients are often required to travel to clinics or labs for monitoring and data collection. Pharmaceutical companies can use patient remote monitoring for continuous, unobtrusive data collection. This is a convenience for trial participants, and can improve the completeness and quality of the trial data. It also reduces the costs to the pharmaceutical company associated with bringing patients to clinics or labs for monitoring.

Medical tourism

Patient remote home monitoring enables healthcare facilities to continue monitoring patients when they return to their home countries.
