Signature Healthcare Selects SmartSense by Digi to Automate and Improve Processes for High-Quality Patient Care

Leading Healthcare Provider to Benefit from Monitoring Flexibility as they Manage Recovery from Hospital Fire

BOSTON, March 21, 2023 — SmartSense by Digi®, part of Digi International (NASDAQ: DGII, and a leading global provider of Internet of Things (IoT) connectivity solutions, today announced a new strategic program with Signature Healthcare, a leading healthcare system that provides primary care, specialty care, hospital care, and ancillary services for patients across 14 Massachusetts-based locations. Signature Healthcare will implement the SmartSense IoT Sensing-as-a-Service framework to monitor more than 150 critical assets for compliance, safety, and efficacy.

SmartSense’s IoT critical asset monitoring solutions will enable Signature Healthcare to automate its rigorous compliance processes through real-time critical control point visibility of temperature-sensitive vaccines, medications, and lab samples. By integrating SmartSense’s interconnected cellular gateways and wireless IoT sensors within its facilities, Signature Healthcare can simplify the complexities of compliance with actionable, data-driven insights that help streamline workflows, reduce human error and enhance asset protection.

Signature Heathcare recently suffered a 10-alarm fire at their Brockton, Massachusetts location. Fortunately, no injuries were reported, but patients and operations were displaced. Signature Healthcare will utilize the agile nature of the SmartSense solution to ensure monitoring is in place while refrigeration assets are relocated.

“Health systems nationwide have been challenged with labor intensive and complex compliance reporting for decades, and in some cases, severe business disruption,” said Guy Yehiav, President of SmartSense by Digi. “With more telemetry and behavioral data available than ever before, leading healthcare facilities are choosing agile IoT-enabled automation tools that transform data into insights and actions. Combining our best-in-class IoT sensing and monitoring devices with the power of prescriptive analytics helps healthcare organizations to ultimately boost the quality and consistency of their patient care.”   

With the SmartSense Sensing-as-a-Service Platform, Signature Healthcare will enrich existing operating procedures with data driven, intuitive workflows. The real-time visibility into asset performance will also help reduce the rate of costly equipment breakdowns and disruptive maintenance issues that could impact patients’ care.

“We researched many providers and the decision to select SmartSense was obvious,” said Margaret Clapp, Director of Pharmacy. “Signature Healthcare prides itself on delivering impactful therapeutic outcomes through consistent, high-quality patient care. SmartSense will empower our employees to continue doing exactly that, leveraging advanced data and IoT-enabled asset monitoring to drive critical decision-making. We look forward to working with SmartSense as we work through fire recovery to ensure that patient safety and compliance remains our top priority.”
