ZephyrLIFE™ Home and ZephyrLIFE™ Hospital Released to Market
ANNAPOLIS, Md. --(Business Wire)--
Zephyr Technology is proud to announce the release of ZephyrLIFE™ - the
world's first remote monitoring system designed specifically for the
growing market of transitional care. Transitional care involves managing
the continuity of health care during the transition between health care
practitioners and facilities as a patient's condition and care needs
change during the course of a chronic or acute illness, which ZephyrLIFE
has been designed for.
ZephyrLIFE increases safety, reduces never events and assists clinicians
in providing care in hospitals, skilled nursing facilities and homes.
Using wearable sensors, wireless communication to the cloud and advanced
workflow based algorithms and data display, ZephyrLIFE saves costs,
ZephyrLIFE is designed to be easily deployed while remaining able to be
integrated enterprise-wide - with industry standard interfaces to
electronic medical records, such as Epic, Rhapsody and other web-based
Deployed in multiple hospitals, ZephyrLIFE has been used to aide in fall
and bed sore prevention, enhance sepsis detection and assist in remote
titration of care.
Zephyr recently completed a 2-year Congestive Heart Failure (CHF) trial
of ZphyrLIFE in partnership with Qualcomm Life, Verizon Wireless (News - Alert), NIH,
IHS and Flagstaff Hospital in Arizona. The results of the study
indicated a 3-fold increase in time between hospital visits and a 2-fold
decrease in the cost of patient care.
Gigi Sorensen, CNO of Flagstaff Hospital stated, "The Zephyr system
enabled critical patient communication with the clinical staff leading
to the improvements in care."
Brian Russell, CEO of Zephyr Technology agreed, "This is a huge leap
forward - with the first fully operational system to truly deliver on
the promise of wearable, wireless care that follows patients from the
hospital into their homes. ZephyrLIFE continues to lead the industry in
wearable, wireless health solutions."
