Oslo, October 22, 2021 – Observe Medical ASA (OSE: OBSRV) continues its rollout of Sippi®, and reports clinical implementation at several sites in Europe – including use outside intensive care units, and clinical evaluations driving the health economic value of Sippi® 

“We are excited to see Sippi® implementation gaining momentum as society and hospitals now open up. This is a validation of the strong interest and our customers appreciation of the clinical and health economic value of Sippi”, says Bjorn Larsson, CEO Observe Medical.

Significant developments are ongoing in a range of markets:

  • Italy: The implementation of Sippi® connected to the PDMS system Digistat® in a major Italy hospital progresses well alongside the ongoing pilot clinical use. This is coordinated by our distribution partner SIM Italia.
  • Finland: A clinical site using Sippi® since several years will now connect their Sippi® systems in the Intensive Care Unit to their PDMS system.
  • Poland: Observe Medical’s distributing partner, Skamex, recently held a successful pre-launch event of Sippi® at a major intensive care conference in Poland, and in November Sippi® will be introduced to several reference clinics in Poland.
  • Sweden: At Nya Karolinska Hospital in Stockholm Sippi® will be implemented at the Intermediary ward later this year. This is an example of how the use of Sippi® is expanding outside Intensive care (ICU) departments at hospitals.

“Sippi® ongoing build-up of health economic evidence strongly supports an outstanding clinical and economic value for patients and the healthcare system, by using Sippi® compared to current manual urine monitoring systems. This is the case with regards to reduced risk for infections, reduced cost of staff and opportunities for early detection of severe clinical complications such as Acute Kidney Injury (AKI)”, Bjorn Larsson continues.

At Nya Karolinska Hospital in Stockholm Sweden, the ongoing study to evaluate Sippi® for early detection of AKI (Acute Kidney Injury) progresses with a target of 60 patients enrolled at the end of 2021. AKI is affecting more than 50% of patients at ICU departments and represents a significant clinical burden to patients and healthcare systems. Sippi® potential positive effect on early detection of AIK is thus driving significant health economic value of Sippi®

Sippi® is the only automated digital urine meter with possibility for wireless data transfer to the hospital patient data management systems and hinders biofilm formation that can lead to urinary infections. Observe Medical is currently executing on the go-to-market strategy for Sippi® with focus on the clinical rollout in the Nordics and in selected European countries. Enhanced distribution and market access, gathering of clinical evidence and experience from pilot users is emphasized in this phase.

“As the COVID-19 pandemic situation gradually improves we experience enhanced customers access for Observe Medical and our distribution partners. The increased momentum of Sippi® in clinical use is exciting and we expect further acceleration of the clinical rollout”, Bjorn Larsson concludes.
