PeriWatch™ Vigilance™ is a new early warning platform for obstetrics that automatically identifies patients whose conditions are worsening, facilitating more timely interventions. Vigilance augments currently installed fetal surveillance systems, providing a critical layer of patient safety without requiring a hospital to "rip and replace" current systems. The "always on" software uses proprietary intelligent algorithms to analyze maternal vital signs, fetal heart rate, contractions and labor progress in real time, informing clinicians of emerging abnormalities. Specific thresholds and automated checklists can be configured according to each institution's preferences. 

"Delayed response to clinical warning signs is by far the leading human factor found in severe birth-related morbidity," said Matthew Sappern, CEO of PeriGen. "The tireless analyses performed by PeriWatch™ Vigilance™ help clinicians see worrisome trends at a glance, and intervene before it is too late. Use of early warning systems as well as the PeriWatch modules has been associated with a reduction in morbidity."   

PeriWatch Vigilance is an enterprise-wide platform that is simple to implement and augments current fetal surveillance systems, providing a critical layer of patient safety with minimal IT investment and management. Automated analysis and clear patient identification of worsening conditions are essential for centers providing virtual clinical support for hundreds of remote sites.  

PeriGen recently entered into a strategic reseller agreement with Qualcomm Incorporated (NASDAQ: QCOM), through its wholly owned subsidiary, Qualcomm Life, Inc. To learn more, please visit PeriGen executives at the Qualcomm Life booth, #3854 or e-mail
