“This is another significant step in our strategy to expand EarlySense’s presence in growing markets in East Asia” says Yfat Scialom, VP international Sales and Marketing. “By utilizing EarlySense technology, hospitals in Korea will be able to provide the staff tools to detect patient deterioration early and to avoid adverse events such as patient falls and pressure ulcers.”

South Korea’s medical market size in 2013 was around US $4.2B and grew by more than 7% between 2010 and 2013. The Korean health care system has several advantages that provide a strong platform for the contact-free monitoring technology: world-class information technology infrastructure and healthcare data, increasing demand for greater accountability and a recent focus on providing cost effective solutions for an aging population with a growing chronic disease burden.

“We are excited to start operating in the South Korean market, as it has a strong focus on patient safety and quality of care, ” said Dalia Argaman, VP of Clinical and Regulatory Affairs & QA of EarlySense. “This regulatory clearance is additional evidence for EarlySense’s robust quality system.”
