Manipal Hospitals installs Isansys’ RPM system to monitor critical patients out of ICU

Manipal Hospitals in India has adopted a remote patient monitoring system by UK-based Isansys Lifecare. 

The Patient Status Engine (PSE) is a wireless platform that captures and analyses patients’ physiological data, such as heart rate, temperature, blood saturation, blood pressure and ECG, continuously and in real time. These data, along with an early warning score, are being fed live to a central monitoring station and on care teams’ mobile phones.

The system, which has been approved for use in the United States, the United Kingdom, and Europe, can be adopted in many health facilities and allows providers to quickly establish virtual wards while seamlessly incorporating patient data into their EMR. 

WHY IT MATTERS

Manipal Hospitals will use the Isansys PSE devices to continuously track the conditions of critical patients out of the ICU. It will allow them to determine which patients will require admission to the ICU and those who can be managed and treated in wards. 

Currently installed in the hospital wards, the devices will be soon expanded across all units of the healthcare chain. 

THE LARGER TREND

Another large hospital chain in India, Apollo Hospitals, has recently unveiled an in-patient room automation system. Developed through its health technology unit Healthnet Global, AutoMaid provides an RPM system with AI-powered triaging that captures vital parameters in real time. It also comes with motion sensors, a communication pod that enables touch and voice commands, and mobile access to room services. 

Last year, US-based Stasis Health tied up with Medtronic India to deliver its RPM solution to the country. The Stasis Monitor compromises a bedside monitor that tracks six vital signs, a tablet, and a cloud-connected app that enables remote monitoring across devices.
