WALTHAM, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--EarlySense, a market leader in proactive patient care solutions, announced today that Robert M. Wachter, MD, has joined the company’s Medical Advisory Board. “Hospitals are facing a growing challenge in providing high quality medical care under tight budgetary constraints. Nowhere are these challenges greater than on the general medical-surgical ward, where increasingly ill patients are cared for by overstressed doctors and nurses. We simply have to find ways to monitor our patients using new intelligently designed information technology tools, rather than depending on human eyeballs and shoe leather. Continuous monitoring systems such as the EarlySense system hold great promise for filling this crucial patient safety gap. This is why I am so excited about joining EarlySense’s Medical Advisory Board,” said Dr. Wachter.
