WALTHAM, Massachusetts, July 15, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --
EarlySense®, the market leader in contact-free monitoring solutions for use in the hospital, alternate care and home environments, together with Custom Medical Solutions (CMS), a leading provider of Asset Management Solutions servicing LTAC's, LTC, Acute Care, Rehab Facilities, and Home Care organizations, announced today a collaboration agreement establishing CMS and EarlySense as commercial partners. Through this agreement, CMS will be offering rental programs, and direct bundled purchasing of the EarlySense System, along with the multitude of other products and solutions offered currently by CMS.
"The partnership with CMS will allow us to answer a growing need in the alternate healthcare market to enhance residents' safety and enable personalized care," said Tim O'Malley, President EarlySense, Inc. "Skilled Nursing Facilities, LTAC's and Rehab Facilities are looking to enhance and improve their clinical capabilities in an effort to accept and treat patients with higher acuity levels and greater medical complexity. EarlySense's solutions can help them accomplish this goal by warning of a pending adverse situation before an event occurs. The EarlySense System has been shown to help reduce patient fall rates, the occurrence of pressure ulcers and to provide early warning of a potential patient deterioration. These are significant challenges that caregivers face today, and having non-intrusive, non-contact technology available to assist them in diligently monitoring their patients provides an added layer of safety," continued O'Malley.
Through the partnership, healthcare systems will have access to EarlySense's solutions; CMS will offer customers a range of purchasing options including flexible and innovative rental programs.
"At Custom Medical Solutions, our goal is to offer the most advanced technologies that can answer our customers' need to improve the safety and well-being of residents/patients, while being mindful of the financial constraints and the workflow requirements of this clinical segment," said Jason Richardson, President, Custom Medical Solutions. "The EarlySense solution offers technology which is proactive versus reactive, it is designed to assist the caregivers in being notified of pending adverse events, and thereby being able to assist the patient, avoiding compromise. We are excited about introducing this breakthrough patient focused technology to our customers," continued Richardson.
EarlySense, the market leader in Contact-Free and Continuous patient monitoring, assists clinicians in early detection of patient deterioration and in identifying and preventing potential adverse events such as patient falls and pressure ulcers. The company's solutions monitor patients' heart and respiratory rate, as well as movement, with a unique sensor that is placed under the mattress. The system was designed to address safety challenges as well as failure to rescue of those patients who are usually monitored by nursing staff approximately once every four to eight hours in general care floors and alternate care facilities. EarlySense also offers OEM solutions for companies looking to expand their products by providing contact-free and continuous sensing capabilities. EarlySense's North American headquarters are in Waltham, MA, and the International headquarters are based in Israel. The EarlySense System is currently installed in hospitals and alternate care facilities in the USA, Europe, Asia and Australia. For more information, visit EarlySense.com.
