HIMSS Trade Show and Exhibition, New Orleans, LA and Waltham, MA, March 4, 2013 — EarlySense Ltd., the market leader in Proactive Patient Care Solutions™, announced today that it will be demonstrating the company’s contact-fee, continuous, patient safety monitoring solution at the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) trade show this week at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans, March 3 -7, 2013. Attendees are invited to visit the EarlySense exhibit at booth #4719.


“The EarlySense System has made a significant and positive difference in the nurses’ workflow at the hospital. Nurses save time ‘hooking up’ patients to the system because it is contact-free, which obviously also increases the comfort level of the patient. The system based design of this solution allows for our caregivers to be notified of a potentially adverse condition long before the situation becomes life threatening. In today’s environment, we are looking at each and every bed in our institution as a critical care environment. Patients are more complex and require more vigilance in monitoring than ever before. The EarlySense System allows us to have this capability. It is designed for the environment in which it is used, and therefore alarms appropriately, and provides information about patients in a timely manner,” said Timothy Quigley, RN, MBA, Vice President of Nursing Services and Chief Nursing Officer at South Shore Hospital in South Weymouth Massachusetts.


Mr. Quigley continued, “Knowing that the patient is always monitored and that the system will alert if a parameter is crossed makes the patients, their families, and the nursing staff feel comfortable. It also helps us to more proactively and efficiently treat our patients, avoid adverse events, save lives, and ultimately save the hospital money.”


Tim O’Malley, President of EarlySense Inc. said, “The EarlySense System brings a unique ‘systems’ capability to the MedSurg environment by eliminating the need for the usual overly burdensome technology interfaces. In addition, the multiple ready interfaces, to EMR as well as mobile devices and mobile phones, allow clinicians real-time, personalized alerts, empowering real-time intervention with minimal alarm fatigue. We invite you to visit us at our booth and learn about the many benefits of the EarlySense system first hand.”
