Stasis Labs / Cloudnine Pilot
Stasis Labs has created the Stasis Monitoring System (SMS), a bedside monitoring system, along with a portable tablet, that serves as a patient chart. In this pilot, the SMS was implemented across Cloudnine hospital wards in the Bangalore Jayanagar Branch to monitor patients who can be relieved from the ICU but still need monitoring.
Cloudnine Hospital in Jayanagar, Bangalore
January - March 2017
178 patients were monitored using the SMS over the course of the pilot. The pilot reinforced the product-fit for both high- & low-acuity areas.
89% of clinicians agree that the product improves the quality of patient care
100% agree that long-term trends provided by the SMS are useful for clinical decision-making
100% of clinicians recommend the implementation of Stasis at their facility
Feedback from each of the areas of deployment of the product are shown below:
1. SICU: This is a high-acuity area where post-operative patients are monitored. Nurses overwhelmingly agree that the SMS should be implemented in the SICU
100% agree that the SMS is easy to use and saves time
2. Wards: This consists of private, semi-private and general patient rooms with typically low-acuity patients
89% agree that the SMS is easy to use and improves patient care delivery
Being able to pilot the SMS at Cloudnine was a unique opportunity to understand the use of the SMS product in a niche hospital setting. Being a maternity and women's care hospital, the patient profile is predominantly low acuity patients who are ambulatory within a few hours of surgery. In addition, a majority of the patients have fixed hospital stays, as a result of which impact on operational metrics would be hard to realize.
The pilot provided other crucial business lessons as listed below:
Defined the use case for SMS in a maternity and woman's care setting - helped Stasis identify the need for continuous monitoring, define areas for the deployment of the SMS, and understand the profile of patients that would most benefit from the SMS
Clinician and nurse feedback from Cloudnine helped improve the product for use in these scenarios
The pilot also helped define an SOP for use in OBG units across all hospitals
Provided insights into the commercialization process and development of contracts for the product for niche hospitals as well as other multi-specialty centers
Helped validate the pricing and the financial model for niche maternity hospital where the profile of payors and patients is very different compared to multispeciality centers
