Patient Monitoring business at Medtronic partners with BioIntelliSense for exclusive U.S. hospital and hospital-to-home distribution rights of the BioButton multi-parameter wearable

Partnership enables Patient Monitoring business’ commitment to transforming health monitoring by expanding access to continuous vital sign monitoring of patients from in-hospital to home

adding value

The BioButton® medical grade multi-parameter wearable measures up to 1,440 vital sign measurements per day, including skin temperature, respiratory rate at rest, heart rate at rest, and more.1 This has the potential to help enable clinicians to better detect early signs of patient deterioration or, conversely, identify stable patients who may be candidates for earlier hospital discharge. The rechargeable BioButton has configurable acute and post-acute modes to continuously monitor patients as they transition from higher to lower acuity settings.

“Our vision is to empower clinicians and patients with actionable insights to personalize care — anytime, anywhere,” said Frank Chan, president of the Patient Monitoring business, which is part of the Medical Surgical Portfolio at Medtronic. “Today, our solutions touch more than 100 million patients annually in hospitals. Through our collaboration with BioIntelliSense, we will expand our reach to help  more patients in more places than ever before — supporting continuous connected care from hospital to home.”

Since the pandemic, patient safety events resulting in death, permanent harm, or severe temporary harm have increased more than 30 percent.2 Providers are faced with the unprecedented need to monitor higher-risk patients in lower acuity and home care settings. This is becoming increasingly difficult with staffing shortages projected to reach 3.2 million healthcare workers by 2026.3  

“In partnership with Medtronic, we are poised to accelerate continuous connected care models that offer a new level of clinical surveillance and workflow efficiencies for hospitals that are challenged in today’s environment of growing workforce shortages and cost of care management,” said James Mault, MD, founder and CEO of BioIntelliSense. This advanced remote physiologic monitoring simplifies care delivery to facilitate personalized patient care, clinical workflow automation and proactive clinical interventions.”
