The showcase will highlight the benefits of continuous patient temperature monitoring in cancer patients
CLEVELAND–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Blue Spark Technologies, Inc., a leader in wearable remote patient monitoring solutions, will showcase TempTraq® at the 2023 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) at the Las Vegas Convention Center January 5-8. The remote patient monitoring company plans to demonstrate its continuous temperature monitoring device as part of the Medidata Sensor Cloud exhibit. Built within the Medidata unified data platform, Sensor Cloud manages a broad range of wearable sensor and digital health technology data for clinical trials. Medidata is one of the features of the Dassault Systèmes (Euronext Paris: FR0014003TT8, DSY.PA) presence at CES, which is located at booth number 8705 in the digital healthcare pavilion.
“As hospitals continue to manage nursing shortages and fluctuations in hospital occupancy, digital health technology is stepping up to help streamline workflows and better support patient health,” said John Gannon, president and CEO, Blue Spark Technologies. “Continuous temperature monitoring detects fevers earlier, transforming today’s vital sign monitoring standards and helping healthcare providers deliver life-saving care.”
TempTraq is a Bluetooth-enabled patch that monitors patients’ temperature continuously and alerts to temperature rise events in real time. The comfortable, disposable patch is an FDA and CE Cleared Class II medical device that goes beyond the current standard of care, providing clinicians a quicker, easier, and more effective way to continuously measure temperature in inpatient and outpatient settings.
In 2022, TempTraq joined the Medidata Sensor Cloud Network to support the adoption of medical sensors in clinical and pharmaceutical medical research with data integration and standardization.
“Having TempTraq with us at CES helps to underscore the overarching objective at Dassault Systèmes to bring together multiple disciplines to accelerate sustainable innovation and human health,’ said Ben Schlatka, vice president, Digital Biomarker Solutions at Medidata. “Blue Spark is a valuable member of the growing Sensor Cloud Network, helping to shape the future of patient data collection and analysis.”
Medidata is a wholly owned subsidiary of Dassault Systèmes.
