Masimo Founder and CEO Joe Kiani to Speak on AI at Global Patient Safety Summit in Chile

SANTIAGO, Chile - Tuesday, 16. April 2024

Kiani’s Speech on Wednesday, at the 6th Global Ministerial Summit on Patient Safety, Will Explore How AI-Based Medical Solutions Can Empower Clinicians and Improve Patient Safety

(BUSINESS WIRE) -- Masimo (NASDAQ: MASI) today announced that its Founder and CEO, Joe Kiani, will be a featured speaker tomorrow, April 17, at the 6th Global Ministerial Summit on Patient Safety. Kiani’s speech, “Empowering Patient Safety Through AI,” will discuss how artificial intelligence-based technologies, by analyzing both historical and immediate data, can help clinicians prevent errors of omission, improving patient safety, patient outcomes, and clinician efficiency.

As Kiani will note, Masimo’s AI-powered medical technologies, including those used as part of the Masimo Hospital Automation™ family of solutions available today, can ease the burden of staffing shortages by improving clinician efficiency. Furthermore, by integrating and analyzing patient data from a variety of sources, in real time, such technology can provide greater situational awareness than alarms alone and help predict increases in patient risk, prompting clinicians to intervene sooner to catch physiological deterioration before a patient’s condition worsens.

“We introduced the Halo engine in 2010,” said Kiani. “Halo is the first predictive algorithm to incorporate learnings from expert clinicians to identify deterioration patterns in multiple physiological parameters simultaneously in real time to help clinicians identify patient safety issues before it’s too late. Without AI, these types of solutions would not be possible. We’re proud to be at the forefront of this very promising avenue of improving patient safety and patient care. AI – when implemented with the ingenuity, integrity, and expertise Masimo is known for – has the predictive power to help clinicians shape robust streams of patient data – both historical and immediate – into meaningful, actionable insights about their patients. Tools such as Halo ION® and the newly introduced Opioid Halo™, soon to be joined by Sepsis Halo, Activity Halo, and more, can help clinicians prioritize patient needs, make more informed decisions and more efficient diagnoses, and streamline workflows in numerous ways. At Masimo, we have always championed patient safety, and we’re particularly excited to collaborate with caregivers around the world to advance patient safety using AI.”

Our mission is to improve life, improve patient outcomes, and reduce the cost of care. Masimo SET® Measure-through Motion and Low Perfusion™ pulse oximetry, introduced in 1995, has been shown in over 100 independent and objective studies to outperform other pulse oximetry technologies.1 Masimo SET® has also been shown to help clinicians reduce severe retinopathy of prematurity in neonates,2 improve CCHD screening in newborns3 and, when used for continuous monitoring with Masimo Patient SafetyNet™ in post-surgical wards, reduce rapid response team activations, ICU transfers, and costs.4-7 Masimo SET® is estimated to be used on more than 200 million patients in leading hospitals and other healthcare settings around the world,8 and is the primary pulse oximetry at 9 of the top 10 hospitals as ranked in the 2022-23 U.S. News and World Report Best Hospitals Honor Roll.9 In 2005, Masimo introduced rainbow® Pulse CO-Oximetry technology, allowing noninvasive and continuous monitoring of blood constituents that previously could only be measured invasively, including total hemoglobin (SpHb®), oxygen content (SpOC™), carboxyhemoglobin (SpCO®), methemoglobin (SpMet®), Pleth Variability Index (PVi®), RPVi™ (rainbow® PVi), and Oxygen Reserve Index (ORi™). In 2013, Masimo introduced the Root® Patient Monitoring and Connectivity Platform, built from the ground up to be as flexible and expandable as possible to facilitate the addition of other Masimo and third-party monitoring technologies; key Masimo additions include Next Generation SedLine® Brain Function Monitoring, O3® Regional Oximetry, and ISA™ Capnography with NomoLine® sampling lines. Masimo’s family of continuous and spot-check monitoring Pulse CO-Oximeters® includes devices designed for use in a variety of clinical and non-clinical scenarios, including tetherless, wearable technology, such as Radius-7®, Radius PPG®, and Radius VSM™, portable devices like Rad-67®, fingertip pulse oximeters like MightySat® Rx, and devices available for use both in the hospital and at home, such as Rad-97® and the Masimo W1® medical watch. Masimo hospital and home automation and connectivity solutions are centered around the Masimo Hospital Automation™ platform, and include Iris® Gateway, iSirona™, Patient SafetyNet, Replica®, Halo ION®, UniView®, UniView :60™, and Masimo SafetyNet®. Its growing portfolio of health and wellness solutions includes Radius Tº®, Masimo W1 Sport, and Masimo Stork™.
