With the addition of Imprivata Medical Device Access to Masimo Root and Iris Gateway, hospitals gain access to an even more powerful patient monitoring and hospital automation solution designed to improve clinical workflows and efficiency in numerous ways. By allowing clinicians to instantaneously log on securely to medical devices, the enhanced solution will help them spend more time caring for patients without compromising the security of sensitive patient information.

“We are excited to work toward bringing Imprivata’s authentication technology to Masimo customers, to enhance their experience with our monitoring and automation solutions and to help them stay focused on improving patient outcomes. Our Root and Iris® platforms are designed to aggregate and automate the transfer of patient data as seamlessly as possible, to make sure clinicians have the most relevant, most timely information at their fingertips at all times,” stated Bilal Muhsin, Chief Operating Officer, Masimo.

“In today’s complex Internet of Medical Things, healthcare organizations are faced with the challenge of protecting the security and integrity of the information stored on and transmitted through medical devices without impeding clinical productivity,” said Wes Wright, Chief Technology Officer at Imprivata. “By partnering with Masimo, we’re pleased to give our joint customers the ability to implement and enforce the security of sensitive information captured on Root and Iris platforms, without affecting clinical workflows.”

Masimo Root is a powerful, expandable patient monitoring and connectivity hub that integrates an array of technologies, devices, and systems to provide multimodal monitoring and connectivity solutions in a single, clinician-centric platform. Root’s plug-and-play expansion capabilities allow clinicians to centralize patient monitoring by bringing together advanced rainbow SET® parameters, brain function monitoring, regional oximetry, capnography, and vital signs measurements on an easy-to-interpret, customizable display, empowering clinicians with more information for making patient assessments.

Iris Gateway is a component of Masimo’s Hospital Automation solution that provides third-party device integration and automates the transfer of data from medical devices into Electronic Medical Records (EMRs) to help improve productivity and reduce the likelihood of transcription errors.

Imprivata Medical Device Access is part of a comprehensive identity and multifactor authentication platform for fast, secure authentication workflows across the healthcare enterprise. Imprivata Medical Device Access combines security and convenience by enabling fast, secure authentication across clinical workflows while creating a secure, auditable chain of trust wherever, whenever, and however users interact with patient records and other sensitive data.

About Masimo

Masimo (NASDAQ: MASI) is a global medical technology company that develops and produces a wide array of industry-leading monitoring technologies, including innovative measurements, sensors, patient monitors, and automation and connectivity solutions. Our mission is to 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 newborns,3 and, when used for continuous monitoring with Masimo Patient SafetyNet™ in post-surgical wards, reduce rapid response team activations, ICU transfers, and costs.4-6 Masimo SET® is estimated to be used on more than 150 million patients in leading hospitals and other healthcare settings around the world,7 and is the primary pulse oximetry at 9 of the top 10 hospitals listed in the 2019-20 U.S. News and World Report Best Hospitals Honor Roll.8 Masimo continues to refine SET® and in 2018, announced that SpO2 accuracy on RD SET® sensors during conditions of motion has been significantly improved, providing clinicians with even greater confidence that the SpO2 values they rely on accurately reflect a patient’s physiological status. 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® and Radius PPG™, 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®. Masimo hospital automation and connectivity solutions are centered around the Iris® platform, and include Iris Gateway®, Patient SafetyNet, Replica™, Halo ION™, UniView™, and Doctella™.
