Newport News, VA, March 1, 2023– ivWatch, LLC, the IV safety company, celebrated its 12-year anniversary and a record revenue year with a 75% increase in SmartTouch Sensor usage and a 26% increase in additional patient monitors deployed into the marketplace. The ivWatch continuous IV site monitoring system consists of a disposable miniaturized sensor that is connected to a patient monitor that notifies clinicians if fluid is leaking outside of their patient’s vein. Due to the potential severity of infiltrations, it is critical for clinicians to identify these adverse events as soon as possible to prevent patient injury.
The innovation is designed to work in tandem with the current clinical standards of periodic IV site assessments. New customers are adopting this latest technology to their work flows to help improve patient safety. Existing ivWatch users continue to invest in the SmartTouch technology, adding hospital-wide policies and protocols to complement their current nursing practices.
ivWatch technology continues to be the only product in the marketplace with the ability to detect IV infiltrations and extravasations at the earliest stages. The company was founded 12 years ago and grew its business from humble beginnings to now a global company that proudly manufactures its innovations in-house in the United States. With 64 patents, seven international distributors, five FDA 510K clearances, CE marking, and market authorization in eight areas, the company has laid a strong foundation for exponential growth in 2023.
In addition ECRI, an independent third party in healthcare research, hosted a webinar titled “In-Lab Testing: Device to Reduce Risk of IV Site Infiltrations” and a recording can be found here: https://www.ecri.org/components/HDJournal/Pages/Webcast-Device-to-Reduce-Risk-of-IV-Site-Infiltrations.aspx.
