Joe Kiani is an entrepreneur and inventor responsible for some of the most innovative medical

technology in the world. As a dedicated patient safety advocate, Kiani has worked to create

medical devices that improve accuracy and efficiency so that clinicians can provide the best

care possible.

In 1989, Kiani founded Masimo, which he has built from a “garage start-up” into a globally

recognized medical technology company. Mr. Kiani began the company with one goal in

mind—to create a pulse oximeter that solved what the medical community had deemed

unsolvable—reliable pulse oximetry. He did so by co-inventing Masimo Signal Extraction

Technology ® (SET ® ), which reliably and accurately reports on a patient’s blood oxygen levels.

Today, Kiani’s invention is considered to be modern pulse oximetry and is used by hospitals

around the world.

Ever since, Masimo has led the way in inventing monitoring devices that bring the same

accuracy to many of the monitoring devices that clinicians and patients alike rely on. With

hundreds of patents between Kiani and his team, he is responsible for a significant number of

contributions to the medical device industry. Kiani has also taken his inventiveness to the

consumer side of healthcare. He and his team are tackling problems that bring advanced

medical technology into the home with devices like the Masimo Stork baby monitor and Opioid


Kiani’s desire for innovative solutions doesn’t end with additions to his medical device lineup,

either. He has made it part of his mission to advocate for patient safety as well. In 2013, Kiani founded the PSMF

the Patient Safety Movement Foundation, an organization committed to

ending avoidable patient harm and deaths in U.S. hospitals. Kiani also serves on PCAST, the

President’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology, where he works with other experts

and legislators to find solutions to the country’s most pressing issues of patient safety.

A graduate of SDSU’s College of Engineering, Kiani was invited to speak at the university for the

President’s Lecture Series and currently serves on the Dean’s Advisory Board. He is committed

to inspiring young people to find and follow their passions—no matter their career path. Kiani

encourages students to chase what inspires them, to learn at every turn, and to work hard to

make the world a better place.
