Stasis' monitoring system enables timely clinical decisions

Various research reports suggest that only 25% hospital beds in India are continuously monitored vis-à-vis 50-70% in matured markets. To ensure appropriate delivery of healthcare, consistent monitoring of the patient is necessary, and clinically relevant data leads to better decision making by doctors.

This inspired the two young guys — Dinesh Seemakurty and Michael Maylahn, both students at the University of Southern California — to build a continuous monitoring system that could continuously monitor patients outside ICUs. Hence came up Stasis Labs, a healthcare technology startup that aims to make proactive healthcare accessible, affordable, and universal.

Sharing the USP of the system, Stasis Labs co-founder Dinesh Seemakurty said, “It significantly improves a patient’s outcomes by providing the required information to clinicians so that they make more accurate clinical decisions in a timely manner.”

Referring to the importance of monitoring system, Seemakurty said, “In a country like India where hospital beds are in short supply, continuous vitals monitoring is a boon to speed up the treatment process and more number of patients can now be treated in a similar time frame.”

Stasis Monitoring System was designed to seamlessly integrate with existing clinical and nursing workflows in Indian hospitals. The product uses the same probes and sensors that are clinically trusted by hospitals.

 The system, designed in partnership with the Cedars-Sinai Medical Centre in Los Angeles, monitors six key patient vitals continuously – heart rate, SPO2, three-lead ECG, respiratory rate, non-invasive BP, and temperature. Its colour-based icon display gives patients and nurses a quick visual readout of the patient’s condition.

 The system, integrated with an online dashboard, collects and presents the data in an easy to interpret format. This enables clinical decision making based on historical patient vitals trends. Vitals are recorded every five minutes, providing ICU-grade long-term patient vitals trends that clinicians can now use to make informed decisions.

“The hardware is manufactured completely in India in partnership with an ISO 13485 certified medical devices manufacturer at a factory in Mysuru,” Seemakurty said.

The Stasis Monitoring System is deployed across four hospitals in Bengaluru such as Narayana Healthcare and Cloudnine. In 2016, the company raised $5 million in its seed investment round led by RTP-Healthcare Ventures. The round also saw participation from Wonder Ventures and Techstars Ventures, among others.

On future goals, co-founder Michael Maylahn said, “We are slowly penetrating in other tier-I cities across the country. The seed fund will allow us to make pan-India presence by the end of this year, and scale us into tier-II and tier-III cities.”
