VinCense - A Primer on our Product Offerings

VinCense platform encompasses three major health tech trends – mobility, IoT, analytics; built around India’s first clinical grade BLE(bluetooth low energy) wearable(with detachable straps) that measures pulse rate, oxygen saturation, respiratory rate and skin temperature. BLE enabled third party devices – Non-invasive Blood Pressure (NIBP) monitor, Glucometer and weighing scale have been integrated into the platform. A wireless 12 lead ECG device has also been incorporated. This cutting edge technology solution augments clinical decision making – enabling early intervention leading to reduced risks and complications and thereby improved clinical outcomes.

Used with straps for monitoring and without for spotcheck.

VinCense Digital Health Screening Platform (DHSP) - for NCD Screening/Spotcheck

VinCense DHSP is capable of providing 8 parameters in 4 minutes and the perfect platform for time and cost-effective NCD screening – the principal factor in being able to deliver preventive care for all.

Early identification of NCD metabolic risk factors such as raised blood pressure, blood sugar and obesity can be done from the collected vitals by the NCD analytics in the web interface. This will be very useful for the early identification of risk factors which in turn helps in better treatment outcomes thus enabling preventive and curative care, that too at a compelling price point. The health status of the individual can also be tracked. It also helps in population-based periodic screening of NCD risk factors -> facilitate early detection -> reduce premature deaths. Thus our solution is an ideal fit for mass screening and management of Non communicable Diseases.

VinCense

We have innovated and created VinCense to facilitate real-time patient care through continual remote monitoring of vital signs in an unobtrusive and non-invasive manner. VinCense automates collection of actionable data.

VinCense consists of a wearable (a device worn on the wrist like a watch), an Android app and a database accessible from a Web interface. To use VinCense, you need an Android mobile device and a reliable WiFi or data connection.

The wearables

The wearables feels just like a wristwatch. It is quite unobtrusive. It continually performs accurate, clinical-grade monitoring of three vital parameters: pulse rate, skin temperature and oxygen saturation.

The wearables is rugged and water-resistant. It is constructed of a biocompatible material and is easy to maintain. It is powered by a standard coin cell. The power consumption is low, and so the life is long.

The wearables transmits the collected data to the user’s mobile device using Bluetooth 4.0 technology. An Android app sends the data in turn to the cloud that the care-provider can study at any time from anywhere. We realise that there are hiccups in data connectivity anywhere, and so we have provided for data to be logged offline for a full 24 hours. Once the connection is restored, the data are uploaded automatically.

Help button is used to get emergency assistance. SMS alerts will be sent to five pre-configured numbers.

The Mobile App

We have built a number of features into the mobile app to make it helpful

There is a nurse call feature, for convenience.

VinCense facilitates pain management through a feature whereby the user can record pain levels.

The app can be used to send text messages with location information in case there is an emergency.

A 24-hour real-time record of the vital parameters, notifications can be visualised readily on the mobile device.

There are helpful indications: Device not connected or out of range, wearables battery low.

The Web Interface

As a clinician, you will truly appreciate the features of the Web interface, which permits you to monitor multiple patients simultaneously. The interface gives you visible and audible alerts/notifications.

Patients in the ICU as well as those in the rooms or even at home can all be monitored. Once configured, the interface is intuitive to use.

It can provide you a bird’s eye view of all your patients’ status through a macro dashboard. These dashboards enable you to monitor your patients in real time.

In the background, it is making secure backups of all the patient data.

Automated population of EMRs is also possible.

You will also enjoy the power of data analytics that the VinCense Web interface gives you. You can make better decisions using the different means in which you can examine the raw data using VinCense.

How it helps

VinCense spells convenience, assurance and reduced costs for everyone involved.
DOCTORS

Now clinicians can monitor even non-ICU patients continually. Vulnerable patients can be monitored closely without being shifted to the ICU.

The human error factor is removed, significantly improving the quality of health care delivered. Access to live, actionable data aids clinicians in taking informed decisions before potential complications could arise.

The reliability of the measurements provided by VinCense permits doctors to provide better care.

HOSPITALS

VinCense revolutionizes healthcare delivery and management. Vital parameters are logged in at higher frequencies, automatically. So is the monitoring of step-down and post-op rehab patients—in effect, regular rooms are converted to mini ICUs.

Nursing staff is relieved of the tedious chore of logging vitals and can focus more on patient rehabilitation. The throughput of patients increases, patients who have been discharged can be monitored by the hospital.

They can be tracked, and in the event of an emergency, the response is quicker and better. The efficiency and accountability of the nursing staff are improved.

As a result, the health care delivery is transformed. On the whole, VinCense can reduce operational costs and lead to quality care being provided on time.

PATIENTS

VinCense serves as a virtual nurse constantly attending on a patient, but is more affordable than one. Thus the health care bill is drastically reduced. Patients with chronic ailments can enjoy better care.

They can avoid staying in a hospital or reduce the duration of their stay. They can be more independent and participate in community activities.

They experience better health, gain peace of mind because assistance is at hand in case of emergencies. Hence, enjoy a better quality of life.
