In 2016, adoption of the EarlySense continuous medical monitoring system increased by almost 40 percent, to include over 105 clinical care areas around the world. The contact-free system was used to monitor the vital signs of over 115,000 patients in hospital facilities and home environments last year.

According to statistically analysis conducted by EarlySense, the company estimates that their monitoring system may have helped save more than 550 lives, and prevent 800 falls and over 45,000 hospitalization days. In the absence of EarlySense monitoring and alerts, these events would cost a combined $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.”



EarlySense has since made some upgrades to it continuous monitoring medical devices. The company launched InSight, a product aimed at reducing patient falls and hospital admissions in nursing facilities. A new Multi-Parameter Alert was also introduced, which monitors a patient’s heart and breathing rates to help healthcare providers in the early detection of sepsis.

“Non-ICU patients are at risk for a variety of complications during hospitalization and early warning signs are often subtle and not easily detected,” said Halperin. “By providing healthcare professionals with continuous data and timely indication of change through our Multi-Parameter Alert, precious time can be saved enabling early detection and treatment of sepsis as well as other potential adverse events.”

EarlySense is also breaking into the consumer health space by introducing its LIVE health monitoring solution. LIVE is primarily a sleep monitor, which EarlySense claims is the first consumer health monitoring product to be based on medically-proven technology.
