This paper is part of a series of reports developed to highlight the improvements needed in patient safety and to ease the pressures and daily burdens on healthcare professionals. The report refers to NHS hospitals in the UK and although it was prepared three years ago unfortunately little has changed in that time and we suspect the same trends can be found in hospitals globally.
The Birmingham Women's and Children's NHS Foundation Trust have conducted the first wireless study in children, the Real-time Adaptive Predictive Indicator of Deterioration (RAPID) study to - assess feasibility of a wireless monitoring system in ward environment - develop and test smart alarm algorithms for the detection of deteriorations
Meet Sam Sys, Isansys' hero. He has to go into hospital but is scared because of his previous experience. Once he is told about the new revolutionary monitoring platform which will look after him wherever he goes, he feels much more comfortable and settled. Little does he know it will turn him into a superhero... Read the comic book here: https://issuu.com/isansys/docs/comic_book_sp

The neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) can be one of the most stressful hospital environments. At present, monitoring technology in the NICU requires multiple wired sensors to track each baby’s vital signs. This study describes the experiences that parents and nurses have with the current monitoring methods, and reports on their responses to the concept of a wireless monitoring system.

Heart arrhythmias are one of the top ten reasons why people go to the hospital. Certain arrhythmias can cause sudden cardiac death, which kills 100,000 in the UK annually. According to the Arrhythmia Alliance, 80% of these deaths could be avoided through better diagnosis.
Every day hospitals around the world are under enormous pressure. More patients, sicker patients, fewer resources trying to help them all. When the worst happens outside the intensive care unit the call sometimes comes too late to help. Fortunately, now there is a way to predict critical events in hospital before they happen.
Täglich herrscht in Krankenhäusern überall auf der Welt hoher Druck. Mehr Patienten, morbidere Patienten und weniger Fachkräfte um allen zu helfen. Wenn sich außerhalb der Intensivstationen der Zustand eines Patienten massiv verschlechtert, kommt der Ruf um Hilfe oft zu spät. An English version of this handout is available.
Die Patient Status Engine (PSE) ist ein innovatives, integrierbares und anpassungsfähiges Patienten-monitoring außerhalb der Intensivstation. Die PSE bietet eine kostengünstiges, kontinuierliches und detailliertes Monitoring für alle Patienten auf Station und daheim. An English version of this handout is available
Laut der deutschen Sepsis Stiftung sterben jährlich 67.800 Menschen in Deutschland an Sepsis. Im Vergleich: 50.900 Menschen sterben jährlich an einem akuten Herzinfarkt. Die hohen Fallzahlen, die hohe Sterblichkeit, die lebenslangen Spätfolgen und die hohen Kosten müssen reduziert werden. An English version of this handout is available
“For years, the digital world has hardly pierced the medical cocoon. Until now. Now, for the first time we have the tools to check vital signs on mobile wireless digital devices and capture all the relevant data from each individual to push the field forward.” Eric Topol Creative Destruction of Medicine: How the Digital Revolution Will Create Better Health Care. 2013

The Patient Status Engine (PSE) is an innovative, continuous, vital sign data acquisition, analysis and prediction platform that combines unobtrusive wireless wearable sensors, wireless networks, analytical algorithms and big data to provide low cost, continuous, high resolution monitoring for all patients in hospital, and at home.
In just five years, Oxford-based Isansys has developed a lifesaving heart monitor and secured contracts with two Birmingham hospitals. Deals are lined up with healthcare professionals in Germany and the company is already employing 15 staff here and is hiring workers in India. Here Rebecca Weir discusses the secrets of her success.
Isansys is a company that digitises life at both home and in acute care settings. It has developed a technology which no longer ties patients to the hospital bed or tangles them within over-sensitive and sometimes temperamental wires and cords, but instead allows them the freedom to heal in a safe environment.
