Stasis Labs piloted its Stasis Monitoring System, a bedside monitoring system, along with a portable tablet that serves as a patient chart, in Cloudnine Bangalore Jayanagar branch hospital wards to monitor patients who no longer need intensive care but still need monitoring.
January - March 2017
Cloudnine Hospital in Jayanagar, Bangalore
178 patients were monitored using the SMS over the course of the pilot. The pilot reinforced the product-fit for both high-acuity and low-acuity areas.
89% of clinicians agree that the product improved the quality of patient care
100% agree that long-term trends provided by the SMS are useful for clinical decision-making
100% of clinicians recommended the implementation of Stasis at their facility
Nurses overwhelmingly agreed that the SMS should be implemented in In high-acuity areas (SICU), where post-operative patients are monitored.
100% agreed that the SMS is easy to use and saves time.
In wards with private, semi-private, and general patient rooms with typically low-acuity patients, 89% of nurses agreed that the SMS is easy to use and improves patient care delivery.
Being able to pilot the SMS at Cloudnine - a maternity and women's care hospital - provided a unique opportunity to understand the use of the SMS product in a niche setting. The patient profile was predominantly low acuity patients who were ambulatory within a few hours of surgery. In addition, a majority of the patients had fixed hospital stays, as a result of which impact on operational metrics would be hard to realize.
The pilot provided crucial business lessons and defined the use case for SMS in a maternity and woman's care setting - enabling Stasis to 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 this niche scenario. The pilot helped define standard operating procedures (SOP) for use in obstetrics and gynecology units across all hospitals.
It also provided insights into the commercialization process and development of contracts for niche hospitals as well as multi-specialty centers. The pilot helped validate the pricing and the financial model for niche maternity hospitals, with a very different profile of payors and patients compared to multispecialty centers.
