Masimo Introduces SafetyNet(TM) Surveillance at HIMSS16Patient Video Surveillance System Provides High-Definition Real-Time Imaging at the Bedside
IRVINE, Calif.--(Healthcare Sales & Marketing Network)--Masimo (MASI) today announced the debut of SafetyNet™ Surveillance at the HIMSS (Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society) 2016 Annual Conference and Exhibition in Las Vegas.
SafetyNet Surveillance is a video surveillance system that provides real-time video images of a patient’s room, including the patient with connected monitoring devices, to a central station. Masimo SafetyNet Surveillance is a software option for Masimo’s Patient SafetyNet system, adding existing communication technology to central monitoring.
The camera delivers a high-resolution, high-frame rate video feed to the Patient SafetyNet view-station. An external mechanical lens cap lets patients or their visitors disable the camera at any time. Two-way audio is available to allow the caregiver to listen and communicate with the patient. The system utilizes the existing hospital IT network and can provide viewing of images in the same care area.
“Video surveillance that is not cost prohibitive adds an exciting new dimension to hospital healthcare systems,” said Joe Kiani, Founder and CEO of Masimo. “SafetyNet Surveillance combines innovations we take for granted in our everyday lives—real-time video and two-way audio communication—with top-tier noninvasive medical technology to deliver a holistic system cost effectively. We hope this enhancement to Patient SafetyNet will improve the quality and safety of patient care and help reduce costs.”

Masimo (MASI) is a global leader in innovative noninvasive monitoring technologies. Our mission is to improve patient outcomes and reduce the cost of care by taking noninvasive monitoring to new sites and applications. In 1995, the company debuted Masimo SET® Measure-through Motion and Low Perfusion™ pulse oximetry, which has been shown in multiple studies to significantly reduce false alarms and accurately monitor for true alarms. The benefits of Masimo SET® have been proven in more than 100 independent and objective studies and it is estimated to be used on more than 100 million patients in leading hospitals and other healthcare settings around the world. In 2005, Masimo introduced rainbow® Pulse CO-Oximetry technology, allowing noninvasive and continuous monitoring of blood constituents that previously could only be measured invasively, including total hemoglobin (SpHb®), oxygen content (SpOC™), carboxyhemoglobin (SpCO®), methemoglobin (SpMet®), and more recently, Pleth Variability Index (PVI®) and Oxygen Reserve Index (ORI™), in addition to SpO2, pulse rate, and perfusion index (PI). In 2014, Masimo introduced Root®, an intuitive open architecture patient monitoring and connectivity platform designed to speed the pace of innovation and reduce the cost of care. Masimo is also taking an active leadership role in mHealth with products such as the Radius-7™ wearable patient monitor and the MightySat™ fingertip pulse oximeter.
