Turn up the signal. Shut down the noise.
Our goal is to eliminate all non-actionable alarms. Vital Signs equipment is great at finding signals (and, in turn, creating alarms) but horrible at eliminating noise. They’re a one-size-fits-all solution, not tailored to a patient’s specific needs. CalmWave determines optimized alarm thresholds, using each patient’s unique information and advanced AI techniques, with the ultimate goal of reducing unnecessary, non-actionable) alarms.
Nurses spend 35% of each shift adjusting alarms.
Alarm fatigue is when clinicians, especially nurses, become desensitized to the overabundance of alarms they are hearing and become desensitized to the point that they may miss alarms and/or have a delayed response. Alarm fatigue is endemic in the modern healthcare system, causing more stress for providers, their patients, and their families, which ultimately impacts patient outcomes and staff retention.

We focus on improving the lives of patients AND providers.
Alarm fatigue and nurse burnout are more closely related than many realize. At CalmWave, our mission is to eliminate all non-actionable alarms, which brings us one step closer to a more stable, and quieter ICU. We generate AI-driven insights from this alarm data to increase the transparency of the burden on patients and providers.
Data-driven decision making.
Operations Health™ is the ability to define, capture, and analyze operations metrics to gain visibility of workload events so clinicians can take appropriate action. Applied to Healthcare, the CalmWave Operations Health artificial intelligence platform captures, analyzes, and synthesizes real-time data from dozens of data sources (monitors, labs, orders, findings, etc.) to empower hospitals with the intelligence critical to improving patient outcomes, optimizing operations, and retaining staff.
