Sentrian, the Remote Patient Intelligence™ company aspiring to eliminate all preventable hospitalization, has been selected as a 2015 Global Digital Health 100 company by the Journal of mHealth.
Reflecting the growing prominence of mobile, digital and connected solutions in the healthcare sector, the 2015 Global Digital Health 100 includes innovative companies from 15 countries. Sentrian was recognized for its Remote Patient Intelligence (RPI) solution, designed to reduce avoidable hospitalization by leveraging the revolution in biosensors and machine learning to remotely detect health deterioration in high-risk patients earlier and with higher accuracy. That enables lower-cost interventions to be utilized before the patient becomes acute and requires hospitalization.
"We are honored to be recognized as one of the Global Digital Health 100," said Sentrian CEO Dean Sawyer. "This recognition is validation of the importance of the work we're undertaking with our customers in applying advanced analytics to remote biometric data streams. We believe the technology will drive significant reductions in hospitalization while increasing the efficiency of remote care teams – accomplishments that will help our healthcare system cope with the crushing expense of caring for the chronically ill."
