Dozee launches contactless vitals monitor for hospitals
Dozee Pro to monitor patients with a contactless remote patient monitoring solution
Dozee has launched Dozee Pro, a contactless vitals monitor for hospitals. The Dozee Pro features an AI-powered triaging system that converts any bed into a step-down ICU in under two minutes and enables remote monitoring of patients outside of the ICU.
The company is seeing increased adoption of its new RPM solution with over 70 hospitals across India partnering with the startup in less than three months. It has deployed 4000 devices in hospitals to monitor patients continuously and to help them enhance patient care and clinical outcomes. Around 16,000 patients have been monitored and the company expects to partner with more than 500 hospitals and monitor an additional 200000 patients in the next 12 months.
Dozee Pro enables the continuous (more than 100 times per hour) and accurate monitoring of a patient’s heart rate, respiratory rate, and other clinical parameters like sleep apnea, myocardial performance metrics without coming in contact with the patient. It comes with an industrial-grade contactless sensor, communication pod and cloud-based patient monitoring tool with an AI-powered triaging system that captures real-time body vitals, and provides round the clock monitoring for patients who were previously manually monitored only every couple of hours. The Dozee Pro also features an extensible platform where it integrates with other devices such as SPO2 sensor, ECG and temperature sensor to provide the entire suite of vitals parameters including oxygen saturation, body temperature and ECG.
The Dozee Pro captures 250 data samples per second and gives a reading every 30 seconds. This consistent stream of patient data aids the medical staff with early detection of patient deterioration and notifies the care team of any abnormalities before it becomes critical. Doctors and healthcare teams can remotely monitor the patients’ health from the centralised patient monitor, where at a time, hundreds of patients can be monitored from the web dashboard and also from a mobile phone app. Custom alerts can be put on every patient, helping doctors optimise treatment plans, focus on deteriorating patients and provide improved proactive care.
Made in India, Dozee Pro has been successful in clinical trials conducted with over 1000 subjects at NIMHANS and Sri Jayadeva Institute. The solution includes an integrated early warning system for patients in the post-discharge, outpatient settings and hospital-level home care settings. Dozee Pro helps patients, their family members, and healthcare providers with real-time data and alerts, enabling early identification of clinical deterioration.
Mudit Dandwate, CEO and Cofounder, Dozee said, “Remote patient monitoring is rapidly becoming a way for hospitals and healthcare providers to deliver an enhanced level of quality patient care through the pandemic and beyond. From COVID-19 patient care to post-surgical follow-up, to ongoing care management for patients with chronic illness, Dozee has been helping doctors and hospitals with clinical-grade technology to provide quality care safely and at scale. Our focus is to provide a solution for hospitals that is cost-effective without compromising patient care. Dozee provides doctors with continuous data on a patient’s vitals and raises an alert when there is deterioration in health, empowering them to make informed care decisions no matter where they are.”
