BioIntelliSense is expanding its patient monitoring solutions with the acquisition of AlertWatch, a firm that develops clinical support systems for hospitals.

The Ann Arbor, MI-based company, which was founded in 2011, has won clearance for its AlertWatch. The technology is a patient monitoring solution that includes integration, data analysis, and an intuitive display of contextual patient data for more efficient, actionable clinical decisions.

Boulder, CO-based BioIntellisense has developed the BioButton, a wearable device for remote patient monitoring and early detection.

“The addition of AlertWatch offers healthcare providers comprehensive continuous monitoring solutions, and an accelerated path from adoption to full-scale utilization,” Jim Mault, MD, founder and CEO of BioIntelliSense said in a release. “The patented AlertWatch multi-parameter interface displays and analyzes data from inpatient vitals, the electronic medical record, laboratory systems, and BioIntelliSense medical-grade wearables, to provide clinical intelligence across care settings and acuity levels.”  

As part of the recently announced strategic partnership with Medtronic, the Dublin-based company’s patient monitoring business will distribute AlertWatch to hospitals throughout the U.S. as a new offering in the HealthCast portfolio. 

“I am excited to see our partnership with BioIntelliSense expand so, together, we can help more patients in more places,” said Frank Chan, president of the Patient Monitoring business, which is part of the Medical Surgical Portfolio at Medtronic. “The addition of the AlertWatch system to our HealthCast portfolio of connectivity and remote monitoring solutions strengthens our commitment to patient safety and enables workflow efficiency for our customers as they monitor patients in-hospital and at-home.”

Earlier this month, Mault, MD, was a guest on the Let’s Talk Medtech podcast. He spoke about the partnership with Medtronic and the future of remote patient monitoring. You can find that episode below.
