Partnering with Dozee, the hospital equips all ward beds with AI-powered Remote Patient Monitoring for enhanced safety.

Kozhikode-based Baby Memorial Hospital in collaboration with Dozee has launched the ‘Continuous Connected Care@BMH’ initiative. 

This initiative will empower the hospital’s healthcare providers to track patient vitals, enabling them to promptly identify any clinical deterioration and intervene proactively to ensure the best possible patient outcomes.

Partnering with Dozee, a 'Made-in-India' healthcare technology provider, the hospital has equipped all ward beds with cutting-edge AI-powered remote patient monitoring and early warning systems.

Regarding the initiative, Dr Vineeth Abraham, director, Baby Memorial Hospital, said, "At Baby Memorial Hospital, our commitment to providing accessibility, affordability, and quality healthcare for all our patients runs deep."

Dozee’s Tech Offerings

Under the 'Continuous Connected Care@BMH' initiative, Baby Memorial Hospital has integrated Dozee's technology into its operations to facilitate continuous monitoring of patients outside the intensive care unit (ICU). 

Through this integration, healthcare workers can remotely monitor vital parameters such as heart rate, respiration rate, blood pressure, SPO2 levels, temperature, and ECG in real-time. 

Additionally, the 'Continuous Connected Care@BMH' initiative seeks to enhance patient safety and contribute to operational efficiency within the hospital. 

Furthermore, research conducted by independent consulting firm Sattva indicates that for every 100 Dozee-connected beds, it can save 144 lives, reduce the time taken for vitals by nurses by 80%, and decrease ICU ALOS by 1.3 days.

Dozee's Early Warning System (EWS) is crucial in tracking vital parameter trends and providing timely alerts to healthcare providers, facilitating early detection of clinical deterioration and prompt medical intervention. 

Speaking on the partnership, Mudit Dandwate, CEO & cofounder,  Dozee, said, "We are excited to partner with Baby Memorial Hospital, a renowned institution with over a three-decade legacy of prioritizing patient safety at the forefront of healthcare." 

He emphasized that the partnership is a force multiplier that empowers healthcare providers with actionable insights to deliver quality healthcare.

Founded in 2015 by Mudit Dandwate and Gaurav Parchani, Dozee focuses on contactless health monitoring technology.

Baby Memorial Hospital, Kozhikode, on the other hand, was established in 1987. It is recognized for its healthcare services emphasizing accessibility and quality.  The hospital offers a wide range of medical specialties and is equipped with modern facilities to cater to the needs of its patients. 

AI-Backed RPM Use Cases

In addition to Baby Memorial Hospital, other healthcare institutions also leverage Dozee's technology to enhance patient safety and care standards. 

For instance, KIMS Hospitals in Kondapur recently introduced the 'Enhanced Patient Safety with Smart Wards' program, integrating Dozee's AI-based Contactless Remote Patient Monitoring and Early Warning System into 25% of the hospital's beds.

Previously, Mangalore-based AJ Hospital and Research Centre adopted Dozee's AI-based Contactless Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM) and Early Warning System (EWS). The hospital integrated its ambulatory-connected patient monitoring systems into non-ICU ward beds, allowing for continuous contactless monitoring of vital signs.

In a parallel development, in June last year, Max Healthcare introduced an AI-powered patient monitoring framework in partnership with MyHealthcare, a digital health solutions provider.

With this framework, patients can self-monitor their vital signs with clinical devices connected to the Max MyHealth app. 

These readings are then transmitted to the electronic medical records (EMR) for the healthcare provider's assessment. The system can monitor key health metrics such as heart rate, ECG, Spo2 levels, blood sugar, and blood pressure.
