TempTraq® Wearable, Bluetooth® Temperature Monitor Gives Hospitals a Smarter Way to Monitor Multiple Patients at Once and Respond Quickly to Fevers

Single-Use, FDA-cleared Medical Device Monitors Patients’ Body Temperatures Continuously for up to 72 Hours and Works with Health Care Provider Electronic Health Records (EHR) Systems

 

CLEVELAND (May 2017) — TempTraq® is a wearable, Bluetooth® temperature monitor in the form of a soft, comfortable patch. This FDA-cleared medical device provides continuous, real-time axillary body temperature monitoring for up to 72 hours, allowing hospitals to reach a new level of health care for people of all ages.

Through TempTraq Connect, a secure, HIPAA-compliant service supported by the Google Healthcare Cloud Platform, the may be integrated directly with hospital central monitoring systems and electronic health records (EHR) to safely and securely store patient health care data. Nurses can view the temperature in their system as frequently as needed and can receive real-time audible or visual temperature change alerts at patient bedsides and/or through the central nursing station.

Unlike other devices that provide physicians with only one point of data and offer no continuous monitoring or alerts, TempTraq is the ideal, non-invasive, solution for doctors and nurses who need a smarter way to track, log and respond to fevers quickly. Studies have shown that early fever detection empowers clinicians to intervene faster, treat the cause of the patient’s infection and reduce the risk of complications.

Plus, no more waking patients to take their temperatures, and the hygienic, single-use, disposable design eliminates the hassle, time and cost of sterilizing the device between uses.

Critical patient conditions include the following:

  • Sepsis Prevention
  • Oncology Transplant Patients (Stem Cell, Bone Marrow)
  • High-Dose Chemotherapy Patients (Leukemia, Lymphoma)
  • Immunocompromised Patients
  • Post-Op Patients Identified with Fever
  • Post-Surgery Step-Down Areas
  • Infusion Therapy/Central Line Patients
  • Post-Discharge Remote/Home Patient Monitoring

To-date, TempTraq has shown proven efficacy in the most demanding environments, including University Hospitals Seidman Cancer Center and Akron Children’s Hospital, as well as several other leading hospitals. The TempTraq system is scalable and can support a single hospital or a multi-hospital/physician group healthcare system.
