Automatic, accurate, and complete fluid data 


 

Automatic data collection with no added process 

Stel's patent-pending fluid monitor attaches to any toilet to track patient output and automatically update a patient's Electronic Health Records.

By eliminating the labor-intensive process of manual data collection, Stel's automated pipeline eases an already strained nursing system. It also standardizes and improves the quality of that data, while enabling healthcare professionals to use trends to treat patients and improve day-to-day operations.

Stel surpasses required accuracy for fluid tracking

Existing non-invasive fluid tracking processes require heavy staff engagement and poor patient experiences centered around urinal containers. Clinical nurses and assistants spend hours thoroughly documenting fluid balance charts and costs over $100/patient/day.¹ Staff is expected to be within 30mL of accuracy to ensure data quality. 

Some hospitals unnecessarily catheterize patients during staff resource constraints, in an effort to efficiently gather accurate data.³ Though that greater accuracy is achievable, urinary catheters are a leading cause of hospital acquired infections and can cost up to $2800/day and increase length of stay by 4 days.

Stel is a non-invasive solution that offers accurate data without exposing patients to risk of infection.

Automated tracking ensures complete and accurate data is used to alert healthcare professionals to incidents like severe fluid retention or weight gains, as well as relevant prognoses. 

Stel offers live data patient views and notifications to promote better patient care and lower expenses by surfacing opportunities for early intervention.

 
 
 

Importance of fluid tracking

Fluid Management nursing intervention is the number one priority in acute heart failure management ¹

90% of the hospitalizations for heart failure are due to symptoms of fluid overload ²


Manual tracking cost

Manual fluid balance charting costs over $100/patient/day ¹

Each additional nursing intervention increases hospitalization costs by $289 ¹
