Sotera Wireless and Intermountain Healthcare have partnered to showcase a Sotera patient monitoring device at an Intermountain medical technology laboratory set to open this month.
ViSi Mobile has been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to monitor vital signs of hospital patients, Sotera Wireless said Monday.
According to the company, Intermountain’s new lab will aim to promote innovations to improve care delivery.
“We are proud to participate in the Healthcare Transformation Lab and share Intermountain’s commitment to developing solutions that can result in better care and better cost management, starting in the hospital and moving beyond the hospital in the future,” said Tom Watlington, Sotera Wireless CEO.
The technology is worn on the wrist and works to communicate blood pressure and heart rhythm data to mobile devices.
Sotera designed ViSi Mobile with an alarm management feature intended to alert clinicians of any change in a patient’s condition.
