Maisha Labs, a Canadian digital health solution provider and integrator, assisted Biobeat throughout the licensing process and will continue to play a pivotal role in implementing the company’s solutions in healthcare facilities throughout the country. This includes an upcoming pilot project at The Jewish General Hospital and its Montreal-based Connected Health Futures Hub – OROT, orchestrated by a joint collaboration between Biobeat, Maisha Labs and the TransMedTech Institute, which will use Biobeat’s devices in a remote chronic care program.
Biobeat’s wearable wrist and chest-monitors utilize proprietary non-invasive reflective photoplethysmography monitoring technology to automatically and continuously track multiple vital signs and health parameters. The wireless solutions connect to a cloud-based patient management system to provide medical staff with real-time data and alerts, enabling early identification of clinical deterioration. The management platform includes an integrated automated, customizable early warning score system that incorporates advanced health-AI-based algorithms that analyze aggregated patient data to identify deterioration more accurately.
