Cardiovascular Business - Excel Medical launches the first FDA-cleared patient surveillance system. The WAVE Clinical Platform is the first of its kind cleared for marketing.
The WAVE Clinical Platform is an always-on remote monitoring platform that displays near real-time clinical views of physiologic and medically relevant data including waveforms and alarms for at-risk patients across hospital workstations, mobile devices and inside electronic medical records. WAVE automatically calculates risk, giving an at-a-glance early warning of patient deterioration up to six hours in advance of when clinicians would otherwise notice—and while there is still time to prevent further deterioration. In fact, while using the Visensia Safety Index, WAVE’s first FDA-cleared predictive algorithm, UPMC went from six unexpected deaths in their control group to zero.
