Matt Johnson is the CEO of EarlySense and our guest in this podcast episode.

The company makes a contact-free continuous patient monitor that turns any bed into a smart bed.

Their clients are typically hospitals and nursing facilities, along with some home applications, too. In a typical day at a hospital, heart and respiratory rates are collected from patients about six times per day.

EarlySense can collect this data twice per second, giving an earlier indication of patient deterioration that allows nurses and doctors to react quickly.

The goal of EarlySense’s work in reducing deterioration events and improving patient outcomes is to make hospital care more predictable.

From this, hospitals will perform much better overall. Matt hopes that within a few years, unmonitored beds will be on every hospital’s list of problems to solve.
