California-based management provider 42Gears is helping UK digital health technology company Isansys Lifecare secure and manage its patient monitoring system.
 
Isansys has developed the PSE patient status engine, a certified CE class IIa and FDA class II patient monitoring platform that uses digital and wireless sensors to enable near-ICU grade monitoring and analytics of patient data.
 
The wearable sensors, including the Lifetouch smart patch cardiac sensor and the Lifetemp continuous temperature sensor, automatically collect and analyse the patients’ heart rate, respiration rate, temperature, oxygen saturation levels and blood pressure in real time. If a patient’s health starts to deteriorate, the system will provide a warning to nursing staff so they can act on it immediately.
 
Now, with the support, knowledge and expertise of 42Gears Mobility Systems, Isansys can help healthcare professionals around the world by further enabling remote management of its patient monitoring devices through interoperability with electronic medical record systems and secure management of patient information.
 
“We are seeing a surge in orders for our PSE product as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic,” said Keith Errey, CEO of Isansys. “Hospitals are seeking to deploy the PSE to rapidly increase capacity and numbers of higher dependency beds and isolation wards in order to monitor ventilated patients and to use it to provide high-grade monitoring of patients at home or other locations outside the hospital itself. We are delighted to partner with 42Gears to provide a unified approach to endpoint security and management of our advanced patient monitoring devices and ensure both our valued customers can manage their patient data safely and securely. This will help drive down costs and provide better visibility of their patient’s healthcare status at all times.”
 
42Gears’ SureMDM ensures that the Isansys remote patient monitoring platform operates reliably and effectively within clinical workflows that place the patient at the centre, regardless of whether the patient is in a hospital or community setting. The features of the 42Gears mobile device management enable healthcare CTOs and IT administrators to install and maintain the PSE and its wearable sensors with security and peace of mind.
 
“Deploying a solution that can securely manage healthcare equipment in the hour of need is top priority here,” said Abhay Koranne, senior vice president at 42Gears. “As technology providers, we intend to meet the needs of those healthcare teams on the frontline. There are a host of devices being used by healthcare professionals within the PSE, recording patient data and monitoring patients’ health. Now, when healthcare professionals are pressed for time it is vital these wireless devices are not only used to monitor health status automatically, continuously and in real time, but are also secured and fixed remotely, if and whenever required. That is where our solution helps.”
 
Isansys Lifecare provides remote monitoring that improves patient care, drives clinical performance, ensures economic value and enhances patient safety. Headquartered in Oxford, UK, Isansys has offices in Germany and India.
