RPM maker Dozee from India has unveiled a new AI-powered continuous patient monitoring system that can be used outside the ICU and at home.
HOW IT WORKS
Much like Dozee’s existing connected bed platform, the new Dozee Pro Ex, according to a press release, can also continuously monitor patients’ vitals and comes with an AI-powered early warning feature that alerts care teams in instances of patient deterioration.
What is new with the solution is it allows healthcare providers to monitor patients not just on beds, but also ambulatory patients within the hospital and those at home via a central command centre and caregivers’ mobile app.
Additionally, Dozee Pro Ex features the wireless ECG patch from Seoul-based Wellysis, a spin-off from Samsung SDS. The S-Patch Ex, which received United States Food and Drug Administration approval last month, does continuous cardiac rhythm monitoring and provides AI-powered analysis. Dozee teased the addition of the AI-enabled ECG patch to its RPM offering almost a year ago.
THE LARGER TREND
Among many things, the Dozee Pro Ex has been emphasised as a continuous RPM solution that can “enhance the delivery of home healthcare services.”
It seems that Dozee is betting on the emerging home healthcare market, which growth was accelerated during the COVID-19 pandemic. It has served as a care option to relieve an overburdened health system while catering to an unprecedented volume of demand outside the hospital.
Major providers taking up space in this segment now are Apollo, care 24, Max, and HCAH, to name a few. According to a market analyst, these providers may need technology solutions to meet the growing demand for comfortable treatment at home. Driven by such demand, a fast-ageing population, and rising cases of chronic diseases, the home healthcare market has been projected to be worth around $52 billion by 2032, growing at 19% CAGR from 2022.
Meanwhile, the Dozee Pro Ex also comes as an addition to Dozee’s ambitious MillionICU programme which aims to convert a million hospital beds across India into connected beds, helping hospitals digitise patient monitoring.
ON THE RECORD
“With Dozee Pro Ex, we transcend the boundaries of traditional healthcare and ensure that a patient is monitored 24/7, whether they are on the bed, off the bed, at the hospital, or at home,” said Dozee co-founder and CTO Gaurav Parchani.
