Dear EarlySense Customers.
We, like the rest of the world, have been keeping a close eye on the spread of COVID-19, coronavirus outbreak. As the global leader in contact-free continuous monitoring, EarlySense has been helping care teams identify changes in clinical condition, such as sepsis, for a decade. With the increase in coronavirus cases in the US and particularly the recent deaths in the Washington state long term care facility, the ability to recognize a change in patient condition has become critical. Identifying respiratory rate and heart rate changes that occur with any form of respiratory distress, will provide insight prior to the condition becoming acute. This will allow your care team to isolate a specific patient until more definitive tests can be performed, while attempting to protect the remainder of your residents and staff from exposure.
We know you and your teams have been making comprehensive plans to fight the spread of this novel virus and protect your residents and staff. We would like to extend our assistance as a provider of contact-free vital signs data for the early detection of changes in patient condition.
Our contact-free continuous monitoring system is currently being deployed as a solution to help monitor quarantined patients and protect caregivers by attempting to limit their exposure to this virus. We know you are facing these same challenges; to provide a high level of patient care and monitoring but also protect your care teams from exposure. We’ve configured our solution so caregivers can view and monitor patients without the need to enter the room as often. This configuration of EarlySense is actively being used to monitor passengers from the Diamond Princess cruise ship within the Sheba Medical Center in Tel Aviv, Israel.
Should you have a need for additional monitoring capabilities, we will commit to creating a monitoring solution setup that will support your patient safety preparations. We will provide your staff with some of the tools they need to care for this fragile patient population, while limiting their exposure.
As everyone in the healthcare field braces for the impact of this outbreak, all of us at EarlySense want to assist you and your staff with responsible and proven solutions to this challenging situation. Please do not hesitate to reach out to me should our support be part of your patient and staff safety initiatives in the days ahead.
Wishing you, your staff, your patients and loved one’s good health.
President & Chief Growth Officer
