Top Spanish Hospital Builds on the Success of Its Postoperative Telemonitoring Program with Masimo SafetyNet®
Masimo (NASDAQ: MASI) today announced that Hospital La Fe in Valencia, Spain, is expanding its telehealth and telemonitoring program with the Masimo W1™ advanced health tracking watch. Masimo W1, which offers accurate, continuous measurements of key physiological parameters, is available outside the U.S. as a medical device that integrates with the Masimo SafetyNet® remote patient management and telehealth platform. Hospital La Fe, one of the highest ranked hospitals in Spain and the world, has been using Masimo SafetyNet with Radius PPG® tetherless monitoring as part of its enhanced recovery pathway program for post-surgical patients since last year. Based on the initial success of that program, a hospital team led by Surgical Director Dra. M. Argente, MD, PhD, now plans to equip patients scheduled for elective surgery with Masimo W1 watches in advance, with the goal of improving prehabilitation through analysis of the heart rate variability data gathered by the watch.

Joe Kiani, Founder and CEO of Masimo, said, “Hospital La Fe has long set the bar for successful use of telehealth and virtual care – long before the pandemic. We were gratified that they chose Masimo SafetyNet as the platform for their postsurgical home monitoring program, helping them send patients home sooner and keep track of patient status to head off postoperative complications more proactively. We are excited for them to build on that foundation with the addition of Masimo W1. Masimo W1 will allow Hospital La Fe clinicians to collect a rich set of insightful baseline data for their preoperative patients, allowing them to better understand what is normal and what is not for each patient, prior to their undergoing invasive treatment.”
Oscar Díaz Cambronero, MD, PhD, Head of Perioperative Medicine in the Department of Anesthesiology at Hospital La Fe, said, “Implementing Masimo SafetyNet remote monitoring solutions in an enhanced recovery pathway programme in Hospital la Fe in Spain is allowing pro-active diagnosis of postoperative complications – improving patient safety and early hospital discharge in selected surgical patients. This future project will test the impact of telemonitoring with Masimo W1 in the preoperative setting for upgrading prehabilitation and improving patient condition and engagement.”
Masimo W1 for use in medical applications is not FDA cleared in the U.S.
