The University awarded a contract for biosensor platform license & support.
This emergency/quick purchase was required due to a situation in which public health or safety was threatened.
PhysIQ is personalized analytics that learns a patient's baseline and detects subtle changes to provide insight into their health. A wearable biosensor and transmitter (cellphone device) that tracks patient data across the continuum of care. The wearable device works in tandem with a web-based program license. The hospital can extract personalized patient insight to help support at-risk patients from the hospital to home. All the data and analytics are presented within a web portal user interface or exportable via API into any third-party tool or data warehouse that the hospital will access and monitor. We are using these patient wearable devices during the COVID-19 pandemic to monitor at-home patient's vitals. If a patient's vitals worsen, a patient will be instructed to return to the hospital for additional treatment.
