GCE Healthcare has launched a remote oxygen monitoring platform that will allow providers to remotely monitor patients’ portable oxygen concentrators. The device, called Clarity, is compatible with GCE’s Zen-O portable oxygen concentrator.
Clarity uses smart, secure and connected technology to place patient data at providers’ fingertips 24/7, from an online device, wherever they are, according to a company press release.
The information ranges from flow to oxygen purity, device location and battery life. Providers can also give their patients and their families access to the platform, giving patients an extra support network.
The platform uses the GSM and GPS in the POC unit to transmit data. This reliable system means home oxygen providers are not dependent on the patient having a smartphone or Bluetooth enabled phone.
“With Clarity, home oxygen providers can see how their Zen-O devices are performing, giving them visibility of their POC fleet and the ability to act if need be,” said Donald Oleforo, GCE’s group product manager of Home Care. “It helps predict maintenance and proactive patient visits. This will help providers reduce their operating costs by planning their time and resources. They can then deliver improved service levels to patients and even better levels of care.”
The company plans to roll out additional features and also enable its smaller Zen-O lite portable oxygen concentrator on the Clarity platform.
