Allowing users unprecedented access to secure, continuous health data from the comfort of home, and facilitating their ability to share data with clinicians and loved ones, Masimo’s latest innovation will initially be made available via software upgrade in over 20,000 HEOS Denon Home devices and Masimo Home Health Hubs in the U.S. An additional four million devices around the world are planned for activation in 2023.

Masimo is bringing together synergies in health, cloud-based IoT, and entertainment technologies to create a rich ecosystem designed to revolutionize how we connect and interact with health technologies, including the availability of Masimo’s latest wearable monitoring devices. Using this powerful software platform, the Masimo W1™ advanced health tracking watch, Masimo SafetyNet® patient management solution with Radius PPG® and Radius Tº® sensors, and many more devices, will not only wirelessly relay data to the HEOS and Masimo Health cloud for storage, analysis, reporting, and transfer, but make this data available via in-home displays and apps, alongside customizable notifications and reminders.

To ensure that health data remains safe, secure, and reliably available, Masimo’s HIPAA-compliant ecosystem provides safeguards such as redundancy in communication with the cloud. As users move throughout the home, and even beyond it, key health data, including oxygen saturation, pulse rate, respiration rate, hydration, and temperature, are available continuously, allowing users to track their health and wellness. The platform will also support the hosting of telehealth sessions from home, with data transfer to clinicians streamlined to assist them in providing the most comprehensive remote care possible.

Joe Kiani, Founder and CEO of Masimo, said, “Today represents a major milestone in the integration of our iconic, premium audio brands and our revolutionary healthcare products designed to save and improve lives. Leveraging Masimo’s clinically proven monitoring technologies, alongside the state-of-the-art engineering and reach of the HEOS technology platform, Masimo plans to transform existing healthcare, safety, and entertainment paradigms to improve life in the hospital and in the home.”
