Masimo announces U.S. launch of Iris device management system
January 23, 2019
IRVINE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Masimo (NASDAQ: MASI) announced today the U.S. launch of Iris Device Management System (Iris DMS), an automation and connectivity solution designed to streamline management of Masimo devices used throughout a hospital system.
Iris DMS is designed to address the challenges of maintaining many patient monitors in a complex hospital environment. Iris DMS securely connects over a hospital’s existing network to all connected Masimo devices to provide an easy-to-use dashboard that allows Biomedical Engineers and IT professionals to view detailed diagnostic information about connected Masimo devices at a glance, without the need to physically interact with each device. Iris DMS supports remote software upgrades to ensure all devices stay up to date, easily and efficiently. Patient profiles, policy files, and network settings can be distributed to multiple devices in a single step, simplifying device management. In addition, connected devices routinely “ping” Iris DMS, allowing users to quickly identify any operational issues with any single Masimo device using the intuitive display of near real-time connection status.
Joe Kiani, Founder and CEO of Masimo, said, “More and more clinicians are recognizing the benefits of providing continuous Masimo patient monitoring, not just during surgery or in the ICU, but in all medical-surgical wards, especially for patients on opioids. Masimo patient monitoring devices are more powerful and full-featured than ever, but as a result their software is increasingly complex. Just as with consumer tech devices, medical devices now undergo regular iterative software updates as new innovations and features become available – helping prolong their utility and augmenting their abilities – and as security patches are issued. Iris DMS not only helps Biomedical and IT professionals view detailed diagnostic information about connected Masimo devices at a glance, but helps to simplify the process of maintaining, updating, and standardizing these devices, helping clinicians and hospitals stay focused on providing the best patient care using the most up-to-date technology, not worrying about device maintenance. Iris DMS is another great example of Masimo’s pursuit of holistic care solutions that improve patient outcomes and reduce costs across the continuum of care.”
Masimo (NASDAQ: MASI) is a global leader in innovative noninvasive monitoring technologies. Our mission is to improve patient outcomes and reduce the cost of care. In 1995, the company debuted Masimo SET® Measure-through Motion and Low Perfusion™ pulse oximetry, which has been shown in multiple studies to significantly reduce false alarms and accurately monitor for true alarms. Masimo SET® has also been shown to help clinicians reduce severe retinopathy of prematurity in neonates,1 improve CCHD screening in newborns,2 and, when used for continuous monitoring with Masimo Patient SafetyNet™ in post-surgical wards, reduce rapid response activations and costs.3-5 Masimo SET® is estimated to be used on more than 100 million patients in leading hospitals and other healthcare settings around the world,6 and is the primary pulse oximetry at 9 of the top 10 hospitals listed in the 2018-19 U.S. News and World Report Best Hospitals Honor Roll.7 In 2005, Masimo introduced rainbow® Pulse CO-Oximetry technology, allowing noninvasive and continuous monitoring of blood constituents that previously could only be measured invasively, including total hemoglobin (SpHb®), oxygen content (SpOC™), carboxyhemoglobin (SpCO®), methemoglobin (SpMet®), Pleth Variability Index (PVi®), and more recently, Oxygen Reserve Index (ORi™), in addition to SpO2, pulse rate, and perfusion index (Pi). In 2014, Masimo introduced Root®, an intuitive patient monitoring and connectivity platform with the Masimo Open Connect® (MOC-9®) interface, enabling other companies to augment Root with new features and measurement capabilities. Masimo is also taking an active leadership role in mHealth with products such as the Radius-7® wearable patient monitor, iSpO2® pulse oximeter for smartphones, and the MightySat™ fingertip pulse oximeter.
