What medtech startups need to know about remote monitoring

Four medtech executives talked about the future of hospital at home, and the difference between consumer devices and medical devices, in an event hosted by the Colorado Bioscience Association. The Golden, Colorado-based startup BioIntelliSense makes a wearable sticker that records temperature, breathing rate, and heart rate, among other variables. Last summer, Medtronic's patient monitoring division partnered with BioIntelliSense. The organisation identified a trend where more patients were moving from high-acuity regions of the hospital to lower-acuity settings and their homes, which was one of the factors that led to the purchase. In a panel discussion last week, Frank Chan, president of Medtronic's patient monitoring business, said that the company provides its customers with the technology that enables clinicians to follow patients into lower-acuity hospital areas where monitoring is "sometimes not well done or not done at all, and then follow them to the home."
