SSM Multispeciality Hospital has partnered with LifeSigns, a Chennai-based healthtech startup, to implement 24/7 wireless patient monitoring at its facility in Hassan, Karnataka.
Following the partnership, LifeSigns introduced its iMS technology, a wearable wireless biosensor enabling continuous monitoring of vital signs.

According to Dr Vinayak Narayan, CEO, SSM Hospital, the partnership aims to improve patient experience and improve care. Commenting on the same, he said, "Our collaboration with LifeSigns brings a continuous wireless patient monitoring system to Hassan for the first time."
LifeSigns' wireless patient monitoring solution is anticipated to enhance patient outcomes, reduce medical errors, and offer real-time comprehensive monitoring not only within the hospital but also during at-home care and transit.
Highlighting the mission to bridge the gap between technology and healthcare, Dr Girish Chandra, cofounder & director, LifeSigns, said, "Our wireless monitoring solution enhances patient outcomes and significantly reduces the likelihood of human errors."
Founded in 2019, LifeSigns provides a cloud-based wireless digital patient monitoring solution for healthcare providers. The startup aims to make healthcare more accessible and affordable, using advanced alert algorithms to ensure functionality even in remote corners of India.
This collaboration aligns with LifeSigns' broader initiative to expand critical healthcare access to rural India.
