Foresite Healthcare develops intelligent sensor technologies for passive, privacy-protecting, continuous health monitoring and machine learning-based predictive analytics to enable preventive care and personalized interventions in hospitals and senior living communities.
Our cutting edge monitoring solutions support healthcare professionals and caregivers in delivering measurable improvements in healthcare quality and cost efficiency.
Foresite Healthcare got its start in 2013 as a University spinoff from the pioneering Center for Eldercare and Rehabilitation Technology and Aging in Place programs. Funded by the National Institute of Health (NIH) and the National Science Foundation (NSF), fundamental research in these university labs and healthcare centers began in the early 2000s and combined clinical research with cutting edge engineering and advanced analytics to pioneer concepts on data-driven proactive care. They showed that sensor technology and automated alerts could enable clinical staff to identify and intervene early in preventable injury and health conditions leading to better patient outcomes and lower healthcare costs.
The same clinically-focused innovation spirit drives Foresite Healthcare’s advanced engineering and data science work today. Our Patientcare® and Eldercare
® platforms are constantly advanced to deliver predictive analytics that enable preventive care and personalized solutions to hospitals, rehabilitation centers and senior living communities.
Strategic partnerships make us stronger and help us deliver on our mission.
Our technologies and innovations have been tested and validated in clinical environments for more than ten years and a number of studies have been published in peer reviewed journals. Here are a few of them:
