Masimo (NASDAQ: MASI) has announced that it is partnering with Samsung Electronics America to make the Masimo SafetyNet™ Patient App available on select Samsung smartphones, pre-installed and pre-configured, the company said.
Masimo SafetyNet is an innovative, economically scalable cloud-based patient management solution designed to help clinicians care for patients remotely in hospital settings and in non-traditional settings and circumstances. The partnership with Samsung is expected to allow for broader, faster distribution of Masimo SafetyNet to COVID-19 patients, especially older patients who are less likely to own a smartphone or have the comfort level to configure the Masimo SafetyNet App on their own.
Masimo´s telehealth platform uses a tetherless, wearable single-patient-use SET® sensor to monitor a patient´s blood oxygen saturation and pulse rate, as well as respiration rate, perfusion index, and PVi®, and is designed to help manage the surge in COVID-19 patients while maintaining distance from other patients and providers, allowing hospitals to expand patient remote monitoring into alternative care spaces, including overflow locations, emergency recovery facilities, skilled nursing facilities, and home care settings.
Masimo is a global medical technology company that develops and produces a wide array of industry-leading monitoring technologies, including innovative measurements, sensors, patient monitors, and automation and connectivity solutions.
