BioBeat @ OPR
Welcome to OPR’s BioBeat solutions portal. BioBeat is an Israeli medical technology company that offers the most advanced continuous patient monitoring systems available. Their products and services have received accolades for advancing patient monitoring through innovations like cuffless blood pressure, disposable monitoring patches, and affordable, easy-to-deploy platforms. BioBeat based solutions help medical providers and emergency responders deliver higher standards of care at significantly lower operating costs.
These benefits cut across practice areas and healthcare delivery segments. For example, emergency rooms and responders using BioBeat technologies can continuously monitor patients in real-time from incident occurrence through treatment. Immediately accessing patient-specific health data improves outcomes and can save lives. BioBeat-captured monitoring data are seamlessly uploaded to patients’ records in real time. Hospital staff can continuously monitor patient progress on-site and after discharge, extending services beyond traditional brick-and-mortar boundaries, as illustrated in the video below.
These unprecedented capabilities are made possible by a new generation of physiological sensors that have rendered most competing legacy products obsolete. The tiny sensors have been integrated into two easily configured monitors with built-in HIPAA-compliant secure wireless connectivity. Attaching the small disposable patch to the patient in the field enables immediate continuous monitoring. Its one-to-two-week operational life makes it ideal for short-term hospital stays, at home monitoring, and follow-up. The wrist-watch monitor is intended for indefinite patient monitoring and can replace the disposable patch without disrupting ongoing monitoring data streams.
BioBeat’s revolutionary monitors operate inside an artificial intelligence (AI) driven advanced analytics ecosystem. Information can be displayed on nurse station monitors, while staff configured alarms improve context-sensitive awareness of patient status, as illustrated in the training video clip below. Accessing these analytics quickly using work station or handheld devices greatly improves efficiency and treatment regime collaboration. These are important considerations during high-demand stressful periods common to mass casualty events.
BioBeat's web-based console allows staff to configure monitoring parameters, set and respond to alarms, trigger spot-checks, and drill down into patients' monitoring history.
OPR's BioBeat Solutions and Strategic Services
We have over twenty years’ experience evaluating and performing long-term use studies of health technologies. These are reflected in numerous technical and related business posts on our website and LinkedIn. Our role is to facilitate provider access to BioBeat technologies and transform them into operationally effective, financially sustainable solutions. We build our solutions and tailor them to each client through dedicated teams that combine relevant experience with insights from leading national and international centers of research.
OPR's solutions consider the implications of innovative new technologies on all aspects of our clients’ operations and business models, including financial sustainability, logistics, and compatibilities with existing organizational competencies. We recognize the value of collaborative models that pull together organizations across the healthcare delivery chain, including emergency responders, hospitals, clinics, and independent physician practices. BioBeat’s technologies allow these and related entities to work seamlessly to deliver new standards in patient care and case outcomes.
BioBeat's scalable remote patient monitoring, intelligent continuous triage, and integrated management consoles can help improve community emergency preparedness and mass casualty response management.
We also leverage BioBeat's innovative technologies to help emergency managers prepare and strengthen community preparedness. For example, in mass casualty scenarios, our solutions can improve patient load management and care through continuous AI and analytics-based triage processes. These advanced capabilities continuously track patients to help medical staff and resource managers distribute the load among available facilities and channel limited resources where they are needed most.
BioBeat based emergency management support solutions are inherently scalable, logistically friendly, and financially sustainable because of their low costs, ease of deployment, small footprints, and intelligent systems support. These are indispensable factors for addressing the local, state, and national emergency preparedness shortcomings illuminated by the COVID-19 pandemic. We have been evaluating findings and developing lessons learned so that our teams can support local, State, and Federal efforts to sustainably strengthen the nation's incident response capabilities.
Epidemiology and Remote Monitoring
Epidemiology in the shadows of COVID-19 became synonymous with the study and modeling of infectious diseases. It is much more than that. Epidemiology is a core science behind public health practices and policies. Epidemiologists travel the world to study, understand, and respond to social, environmental, and other factors affecting community health. The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention defines epidemiology as:
“…the study (scientific, systematic, and data-driven) of the distribution (frequency, pattern) and determinants (causes, risk factors) of health-related states and events (not just diseases) in specified populations (neighborhood, school, city, state, country, global). It is also the application of this study to the control of health problems.”
Good data and information as indispensable components of epidemiology. They are also its biggest challenges because of limitations including comprehensiveness, quality, representativeness, and objectiveness. Field surveys, including observations, polling and interviews always include subjective biases that epidemiologists work hard to reconcile.
BioBeat’s innovative health monitoring technologies can deliver streams of epidemiological data that are ideal for advanced analytical methods, including artificial intelligence. Our solutions are engineered to deliver powerful, affordable, sustainable solutions to objectively quantify population health and health services.
