CHICAGO & IRVINE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--GE HealthCare (Nasdaq: GEHC) and Masimo (Nasdaq: MASI) today announced a joint agreement to integrate Masimo Signal Extraction Technology® (SET®) pulse oximetry into GE HealthCare’s Portrait Mobile wireless and wearable patient monitoring solution. Portrait Mobile is built as an Internet of Medical Things (IoMT) platform, using the latest cloud native technology to provide an end-to-end experience for wearable continuous monitoring. By integrating Masimo SET®, clinicians will be able to leverage Masimo’s clinically proven Measure-through Motion and Low Perfusion™ oxygen saturation (SpO2) measurement technology to noninvasively detect and continuously monitor changes in patient status. The agreement follows Portrait Mobile’s 510(k) clearance from the U.S. FDA in August 2023.

“Portrait Mobile is built as an open platform, with the capability to be compatible with other technologies. The ability to integrate Masimo's innovative SET® pulse oximetry in a wearable sensor demonstrates the flexibility and scalability of our new platform while leveraging Masimo’s measurement expertise,” shared Neal Sandy, general manager of Monitoring Solutions at GE HealthCare. “Clinicians and patients will see the real benefit as Portrait Mobile enhances clinical decision-making for mobile patients and ultimately, supports earlier detection of deterioration."

Undetected patient deterioration, particularly post-surgery, can lead to hazardous yet preventable consequences, with 30-day mortality after surgery representing the third-leading cause of death globally.1 The uninterrupted flow of data and continuous measurement of vital signs, such as respiration rate, oxygen saturation and pulse rate, can help healthcare providers detect patient decline as it is happening, enabling timely intervention before a patient deteriorates.

GE HealthCare and Masimo have been long-term partners, delivering joint solutions for customers across the care continuum. This latest joint effort to include Masimo SET® pulse oximetry on the Portrait Mobile platform enables real-time continuous monitoring with a personalized view of the patient’s vitals while keeping patients mobile during critical recovery periods, especially after surgery or discharge from the intensive care unit.

“We are excited to build on our collaboration with GE HealthCare by providing integrated solutions to help our customers and optimize patient care,” said Bilal Muhsin, Chief Operating Officer at Masimo. “Through our expansion into mobile, wireless technologies, we are proud to incorporate Masimo SET® pulse oximetry into the Portrait Mobile monitoring solution.”
