CHICAGO and MINNEAPOLIS –– Avery Dennison Medical Solutions announces its partnership with Preventice Inc. to produce patch-based wearable sensors for clinical monitoring of a patient’s unique physiological characteristics.

Preventice is a developer of mobile health applications and patient monitoring systems that deliver continuous care, wherever an individual might be. Mobile health applications, like those developed by Preventice, improve the doctor-patient relationship by establishing a constant connection and exchange of information between care providers and their patients. This connection encourages patients to stay engaged in actively managing their health while away from their health care providers, and feeds data to clinicians about a patient’s health status without impacting their daily lifestyle.

“Preventice has a unique understanding of clinical care delivery, which when combined with their expertise in mobile device platforms, remote monitoring protocols, algorithms, data management and EMR integration, gives us an advantage in the marketplace,” said Howard Kelly, vice president and general manager, Avery Dennison Medical Solutions. “Together, we will leverage these strengths, along with Metria Wearable Sensor Technology, to offer clinical remote monitoring applications that address the unmet needs of health care providers, while helping improve patients’ quality of life and reducing costs.”

Through this partnership, Avery Dennison Medical Solutions will develop a new version of the Metria patch-based wearable sensor and user interface for the Preventice Care Platform, which creates a real-time, continuous connection between patients and health care providers through mobile, cloud-based and sensor technology. The Metria solution, which incorporates sensor technology from Proteus Biomedical, will be sold as part of the Preventice Care Platform for remote monitoring applications to hospitals and health care systems in the United States.
