Netherlands hospital deploys EarlySense contact-free monitoring tool

Franciscus Gasthuis & Vlietland hospital in the Netherlands has deployed EarlySense contact-free continuous monitoring tool amid the ongoing Covid-19 outbreak.

Franciscus Gasthuis & Vlietland hospital in the Netherlands has deployed EarlySense contact-free continuous monitoring tool amid the ongoing Covid-19 outbreak.

The hospital installed the solution in its new 12-bed pulmonary department for continuous monitoring of Covid-19 patients while mitigating exposure of healthcare staff.

In 2018, the hospital implemented the continuous monitors in its 28-bed pulmonology ward. The monitors are said to have helped in early identification and prevention of adverse events.

Also, EarlySense was successfully used to monitor Covid-19 patients at Sheba Hospital in Israel, as well as installed at more than 40,000 patient beds in healthcare facilities worldwide.

Franciscus Gasthuis & Vlietland care manager pulmonology Lex Kahlmann said: “We are dedicated to providing our patients with the highest level of care, and equipping our nursing staff with advanced technology to help them succeed in their roles.”

The contact-free continuous monitoring tool is designed to track more than 100 patient data points each minute, such as respiratory rate, heart rate and movement, without touching the patient.

A sensor is placed under the patient’s mattress to deliver real-time patient data to a display outside of the patient’s room. This enables early identification of clinical changes as well as reduces the need for staff to enter isolation areas.

EarlySense CEO Matt Johnson said: “Together with our local partner, Devices4Care, we are proud to provide Franciscus Gasthuis & Vlietland with clinically-proven technology to remotely and safely care for Covid-19 patients.

“EarlySense is excited to offer our technology to additional facilities around the world in an effort to protect healthcare workers and patients in the global fight against Covid-19.”
