patient status engine: Manipal adopts PSE for remote management of patients in critical condition but not in ICU



Manipal Hospitals has launched Patient Status Engine (PSE), a health device in collaboration with Isansys Lifecare for wireless and remote monitoring and management of patients who are in critical condition but still do not require admission in USI.

The PSE will determine if the patient will require intensive care or if they can be managed and treated on the ward. Patients admitted to the hospital are urgently transported to the intensive care unit or to the ward depending on the parameters of their state of health. However, there are cases where patients may not require ICU admission but require strict monitoring.

There was a proof of concept in which 3 PSE machines were used in hospitals in Manipal (MH), Old Airport Road, Bangalore. The data helped to provide correct medical help to the patient. The machine helped to read the patient’s vital signs whereby the patient was later transferred to intensive care for better care, Manipal Hospitals said in a statement.

This proof of concept convinced him to order 100 additional devices to be installed in other units of Manipal hospitals. Of these, 10 devices will be used in ambulances, as it is during an emergency that the patient needs to be monitored, he added.

Karthik Rajagopal, COO of Manipal Hospitals, said, “Currently, we have four machines deployed in Manipal Hospitals, Old Airport Road. We will receive an additional 100 machines for delivery next month, the majority of which will be used in hospitals in Manipal, Old Airport Road, and 10 will be installed in the MARS (Manipal Ambulance Response Services) ambulance.

“By the end of the year, PSE will be rolled out to Sarjapur, Whitefield, Varthur, Yeshwantpur and Hebbal in a phased manner after a short proof of concept.”

Keith Errey, CEO of Isansys, said, “We are delighted to partner with Manipal Hospitals on this groundbreaking initiative. PSE has benefited patients in many countries and we look forward to seeing Manipal create this success story in India.
