STMicroelectronics And Preventice Partner To Deliver Real-World Remote Monitoring That Brings Clinical Support To Patients At Home

According to Preventice, this connection is made possible by a small body-worn sensor that is attached to the patient's chest. This sensor collects important data, including the patient's ECG, heart rate, respiration rate, and activity level and transmits that data to physicians via mobile-phone technology, enabling doctors to monitor patients from their iPad or desktop. The wearable body sensor in the BodyGuardian RMS is enabled by ST hardware and software technology that includes sophisticated MEMS, low-power STM32 microcontrollers, and analog components combined with advanced ST-proprietary algorithms.

"ST is a pioneer and leader in the sensor industry and working with them allows us to bring the high-end, clinical monitoring technology developed by Mayo Clinic and Preventice to a broader base of patients," said Jon Otterstatter, co-founder, president and CEO of Preventice. "Our goal at Preventice is to bring sophisticated remote patient monitoring to patients where they live, work and play—creating an environment of continuous care for patients with cardiac arrhythmias and a variety of other chronic conditions."

The potential for remote patient monitoring to reduce patient costs and influence care delivery is contributing to rapid growth in the use of wireless monitoring, which is expected to continue in the coming years. In fact, recent research from  Kalorama shows that the U.S. market for advanced patient monitoring systems has grown from $3.9 billion in 2007, to $8.9 billion in 2011. The market is expected to reach $20.9 billion by 2016, according to this same study.

About BodyGuardianThe BodyGuardian Remote Monitoring System (RMS) is a cutting edge approach to remote patient monitoring that allows physicians to monitor important biometric data outside the clinical setting, while patients go about their daily lives. Preventice has licensed the remote monitoring algorithms for the BodyGuardian Remote Monitoring System from Mayo Clinic and leveraged STMicroelectronics strong IP portfolio for the sensor. The BodyGuardian System detects, records and wirelessly transmits physiological data to the Preventice Care Platform, a secure, cloud-based mHealth platform.

The BodyGuardian wearable sensor adheres to the patient's skin and is much smaller than a cell phone, giving patients complete mobility and freedom go about their normal lives without restriction. Physicians and medical professionals can securely view the captured medical information anytime, any place on devices such as the iPad®, or online.
