  • Peer-reviewed study published in Frontiers of Physiology presents the use of Biobeat's chest patch and novel warning score (MPRT-WS) to predict patient outcomes

  • MPRT-WS more accurate in stratifying patients at risk of deterioration than the clinically-used National Early Warning Score (NEWS)

  • Biobeat to host a demo booth (#2037) at ‎ViVE® 2023 from March 26 – 29, 2023, in Nashville, TN

PETAH TIKVA, Israel, March 27, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Biobeat, a global leader in wearable remote patient monitoring solutions for the healthcare continuum, today announced the publication of clinical data demonstrating that the company's remote patient monitoring chest monitor may be utilized as a pre-symptomatic and real-time detection and warning tool for patients' clinical deterioration, when combined with its AI-based ML tools. The article titled, "Developing a real-time detection tool and an early warning score using a continuous wearable multi-parameter monitor," was published online on March 20, 2023, in the peer-reviewed Frontiers in Physiology.

"Current early warning score methods like the standard National Early Warning Score relies on infrequent data measurements collected from patients only once or twice a day and requires clinicians and medical staff to perform multiple tests to obtain vital signs," commented Dr. Dean Nachman, M.D., cardiologist from the Hadassah Medical Center in Jerusalem and study investigator. "There is immense clinical utility in a novel early warning score algorithm like the Multi-Parameter Real Time Warning Score that is based on a wearable device that continuously monitors several health parameters. Utilizing MPRT-WS with a remote patient monitoring platform allows physicians to receive timely alerts of pre-symptomatic and real-time deterioration and may lead to earlier intervention of high-risk patients with both acute and chronic medical conditions."

"Biobeat's unique Multi-Parameter Real Time Warning Score was developed using both artificial intelligence and physicians' inputs seeking more precise and frequent monitoring tools for predicting patient health deterioration. Our disposable chest monitor, combined with our remote patient monitoring platform, allowed for early detection of high-risk deterioration more than 40 hours before deterioration occurred," added Prof. Arik Eisenkraft, Chief Medical Officer at Biobeat. "There is tremendous potential to shift the patient monitoring paradigm for patients at risk of deterioration, and we look forward to further investigating the capabilities of our devices, our remote patient monitoring platform, and MPRT-WS to provide clinicians with continuous insights into patient health."

The study analyzed more than 2 million datapoints collected from 521 individuals in total. 361 patients were monitored in general hospital wards with 160 healthy participants acting as control subjects. The current standard early warning score methodology, National Early Warning Score (NEWS), measures five metrics of systolic blood pressure, heart rate, respiratory rate, blood oxygen saturation, and temperature. Biobeat developed a novel multi-parameter real-time warning score (MPRT-WS) that measures nine vital signs including the five health parameters obtained from the NEWS, as well as four additional metrics of diastolic blood pressure, stroke volume, cardiac output, and systemic vascular resistance. MPRT-WS was compared to the NEWS for patients in three discrete levels of "Low," "Medium," and "High" risk of deterioration and showed a superior performance in flagging patients at high risk of deterioration with a 77% positive predictive value vs 20% with the NEWS.

Biobeat will attend ViVE® 2023 from March 26 – 29, 2023, in Nashville, TN, and will be available to provide demos of its devices at Booth #2037.

About Biobeat

Biobeat is a med-tech company with unique health-AI capabilities in the patient monitoring space. The company's remote patient monitoring (RPM) health-AI platform includes a disposable short-term chest-monitor and a long-term wrist-monitor, both of which utilize a photoplethysmography-based (PPG) sensor to continuously provide accurate patient readings of 13 health parameters, including cuffless blood pressure, pulse rate, respiratory rate, blood oxygen saturation, temperature, stroke volume, cardiac output, one lead ECG (only chest-monitor) and more. Leveraging its automatic, continuous and noninvasive AI based RPM platform, Biobeat has generated the biggest vital-sign database in the world, which it utilizes to identify early deterioration of patients via its proprietary big-data and health-AI tools.

Aggregated patient health data is viewed by medical staff via Biobeat's secure HIPAA and GDPR compliant cloud-based patient management platform. The platform includes an automated real-time early warning score (EWS) system that incorporates advanced AI-based algorithms to provide alerts on patient health status and potential deterioration. These capabilities allow Biobeat to support medical teams with tailored patient care such as adjustment of therapeutics and early prevention of specific disease exacerbations. Biobeat's wearable devices are the first to be FDA-Cleared for cuffless non-invasive blood pressure monitoring and are also CE Mark certified. Founded in 2016, Biobeat is headquartered in Petah Tikva, Israel.
