Adoption of EarlySense’s medical system increased by nearly 40% in 2016 to more than 105 clinical care areas globally, according to a company news announcement. In total, the system monitored more than 115,000 patients and over half a million patient-days in hospitals and skilled nursing facilities. In addition, more than 100,000 home monitoring days were recorded, the company said.
EarlySense estimated that clinicians using the system were able to leverage the data and alerts to save more than 550 lives, 800 falls, and over 45,000 hospitalization days, creating a total cost savings of approximately $30 million.
“In 2016, EarlySense significantly expanded the reach and impact of our hospital-proven technology and we are pleased to achieve these milestones,” said Avner Halperin, Founder and CEO of EarlySense. “Almost daily we hear from medical institutions about how they saved a life or dramatically improved a patient’s outcome by leveraging EarlySense – it is extremely rewarding. It is clear that continuous monitoring is poised to become a global standard of care, and we look forward to providing valuable health insight and support to facilities, health teams and patients in 2017 and beyond.”
