Clinical Team Researching The Impact Of The EarlySense System Wins 'Best Novel Idea' Prize At The Rapid Response Systems And Medical Emergency Teams 2013 8th International Conference

WALTHAM, Massachusetts, May 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

EarlySense, the market leader in Proactive Patient Care Solutions™, announced today that the prize for 'Best Novel Idea' at the 8 th Annual Rapid Response Systems and Medical Emergency Teams International Conference, hosted this year in the UK by the Royal College of Physicians, was awarded to a clinical research team studying the impact of the EarlySense contact-free patient monitoring system at California Hospital in Los Angeles. The prize was awarded for the poster Contact-Free Under the Mattress Monitoring for Early Recognition of End-of-Life in Med/Surg Units to Jamie Terrence, Director of Risk Management Services at California Hospital Medical Center and the author of the book 'To Err is Common' on the challenges of achieving excellence in patient care . Ms. Terrence also presented a second poster titled Contact-Free Under the Mattress for Early Recognition of and Response to Clinical Deterioration in Medical/Surgical Units.

The award winning poster was co-authored by Ms. Terrence, Dr. Zvika Shinar, PhD, Algorithms & DSP Group Leader at EarlySense, Mr. Tal Klap MSc, DSP Team Leader at EarlySense and Dr. Harvey Brown, MD, Clinical Professor of Medicine at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA and at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, and the principal investigator of the EarlySense System clinical studies at California Hospital. The second poster was authored by Ms. Terrence and Dr. Brown.

"On behalf of the clinical team, I would like to thank the conference committee and the Royal College of Physicians for such a prestigious acknowledgement of the important work we are doing to increase the level of patient safety and care using the latest in patient monitoring technology. What we know from experience as well as formally from the data is that the EarlySense system is assisting us to respond to patient deterioration and potential adverse events earlier, rather than later, in the process of care and as a result achieve better outcomes for the patient, their family members, and our staff," said Ms. Terrence.
