SOUTH BEND, IN—a large and growing patient population is creating enormous costs to care for heart failure patients. Warning signs often develop gradually before rehospitalization is required, but only expensive and invasive measurements have proven effective at catching signs early enough to intervene. As a result, readmissions and costs remain high.

Vital View’s non-contact fluid balance monitoring system provides actionable data clinicians can use to take steps to prevent costly readmissions.  Further, the patient experience is convenient and non-contact.  A University of Notre Dame IDEA Center venture, Vital View’s potential impact on patient outcomes and Indiana’s economy is tremendous.
