Waltham, MA and Tampa, Florida, March 28, 2012 — EarlySense, a market leader in proactive patient care solutions, announced today its plans to participate in the grand opening of the Center for Advanced Learning and Simulation (CAMLS) on March 30, 2012, 8:30 a.m. – 10:30 a.m. CAMLS is located at 124 South Franklin Street, Tampa, Florida. A demonstration of the EarlySense continuous, contact-free, patient monitoring system is a scheduled stop on the official grand-opening tour of the new Center. Visitors will have an opportunity to experience and interact with the EarlySense system and ask questions.
“EarlySense and CAMLS share the same goal, to help nurses achieve excellence of care in hospitals. The EarlySense system contributes to this, for example, by empowering nurses to proactively and effectively identify early patient deterioration and intervene to reduce the need to utilize ICU and telemetry beds. At CAMLS, nurses and doctors will not only have the opportunity to learn how to use this sophisticated, yet very simple to operate system in an enjoyable yet focused environment, but also to understand and appreciate early on, how it will make a clear and positive difference in the way they manage their daily and nightly workload,” said Mr. Ram Liebenthal, executive vice president of sales and marketing at EarlySense and a panelist at the CAMLS Innovation Roundtable on “Medical Device Innovation” on March 29, 2012.
CAMLS, a part of the USF Health Simulation Consortium, offers a continuing education program designed for the full gamut of health professionals. The new CAMLS facility integrates three floors of innovative simulation experience with education and research excellence to push the latest advances in health care into practice. Training on the EarlySense continuous, contact- free, patient monitoring system is to be part of the curriculum as the system is in process of becoming a standard of care in hospitals across the U.S.
Hospitals and rehabilitation centers using the EarlySense system report improved quality of care, patient satisfaction and economic outcomes. The system automatically alerts on changes in a patient’s cardiac, respiratory and motion parameters using a contact-free sensor placed under the mattress. The system enables clinicians to proactively respond to the earliest indications of patient deterioration or safety risk to prevent adverse events and ICU escalations.
EarlySense is bringing to market an innovative technology designed to advance proactive patient care and enable better patient outcomes. The company’s flagship product is an automatic, continuous, contact-free, patient monitoring system that monitors and documents a patient’s vital signs and movement. There are no leads or cuffs to connect to the patient, who has complete freedom of movement and is not burdened by any irritating attachments. The system is currently installed at hospitals and rehabilitation centers in the USA and Europe. It is also commercially available in Canada. EarlySense Inc. is headquartered in Waltham, MA.
