EarlySense, AmericanWell partner for sensor-based telehealth

EarlySense, developers of contact-free health sensors, has partnered with AmericanWell, one of the nation’s leading telehealth companies.

Through the partnership, EarlySense users in the United States will have access to clinical experts and consultation sessions with doctors practicing on AmericanWell’s telehealth network for general health questions. The service is available alongside EarlySense’s new digital health solution for home-based settings, LIVE, which also launched this month.

EarlySense’s technology uses a sophisticated sensor to monitor and analyze more than 50,000 data points every night, including heart rate, breathing patterns, sleep and motion.

Electronic capture of health data increases the clinician’s ability to provide person-specific care from a remote location, notes Avner Halperin, CEO of EarlySense, in a corporate announcement. “This is the next crucial step toward empowering people to take control of their health from the comfort of their home, and it also provides a safety net for family members, who are able to remotely monitor their loved ones.”
