Current Health Receives FDA Clearance for Remote Patient Monitoring Solution

By Ken Briodagh May 07, 2019

Current Health, an AI-powered wearable remote patient monitoring platform (RPM), recently announced it has received Class II clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for post-acute care, which is available for both hospital and home as an end-to-end, real-time, passive RPM wearable and platform.

Current has already partnered with six of the largest health systems in the U.S., including Mount Sinai, and with several U.K. NHS Trusts, assisting them in delivering healthcare at home earlier to reduce readmissions and preventable deaths.

“Real-time, at-home monitoring of vitals allows our team to proactively act on early signs of health decline, preventing avoidable hospitalizations,” said Dr. Neta Faynboym MD, CPE Executive Director, Innovation: Medicare Advantage/Affordability, at Banner Health.

The company said that this solution has been designed specifically with the patient in mind, passively measuring a patient’s vital signs in real time with an upper-arm wearable. Current’s proprietary algorithms continuously analyze data to derive a patient’s health trajectory by detecting potential indicators of patient decline earlier for faster intervention, according to the release.

Current received FDA clearance for its entire RPM and telehealth platform, which includes Bluetooth integrations with other best-in-class devices to track metrics. Patients receive a tablet equipped with a chatbot for Q&A, medication reminders and educational content, which lets patients connect with clinicians via video chat or text message to report symptoms and discuss care.

“Our rapidly growing customer base indicates how focused health systems and home health agencies are on moving more healthcare from hospital to home,” said Christopher McCann, CEO and Co-Founder, Current Health. “Today, Current is helping them do just that by monitoring patients’ health trajectories to enable earlier interventions, reduce the overall and growing cost of hospital readmissions and, more importantly, prevent avoidable deaths. But more fundamentally, we’re building a future where healthcare comes to us. Patients don’t always know when to call their doctor. Current will.”
