When responding to patient deterioration, timing can be critical. Early warning scores use multi-parameter patient information so you can identify at-risk patients sooner – up to six hours sooner than monitoring a single parameter.([FOOTNOTE=Maupin JM, Roth DJ, Krapes JM.

The Vital Sync™ early warning score app continuously monitors patient data and automatically calculating a patient’s early warning score. This innovative clinical decision support (CDS) app is designed to make the implementation of an EWS protocol simple, facilitate clinical collaboration, and help you get a head start on escalating care.
The Vital Sync™ EWS app continuously and automatically pulls information from your devices to provide accurate, real-time parameter measurements. And because our app pulls information directly from bedside devices — rather than only the EMR — it provides an “earlier” early warning score than many other systems that rely on the EMR as the sole source for data. This direct-from-the-device capability helps get critical information to you quickly so you can respond to signs of clinical distress quickly.
And it automatically presents information when and where you need it, on the web-enabled devices you use throughout the day on your hospital’s network. This easy remote access to early warning scores and other vital information helps your clinical team prioritize patient care.
The Vital Sync™ monitoring and CDS solution is a software platform with a set of CDS tools that provides you with the right information, at the right time.
This white paper provides detailed information that will show you how others have realized the value of early warning scores and systems.
Learn more about how early warning systems can help you detect subtle signs of patient deterioration before there’s a problem.
The Vital Sync™ EWS app helps you realize the benefits of using a remotely accessible early warning system. It calculates an automatic EWS using multi-parameter information such as:
The Vital Sync™ EWS app gives you a choice of implementing a commonly used EWS based on published literature, as well as the option to use a custom EWS based on your hospital’s protocols. The Vital Sync™ EWS app includes the following programmed EWS protocols:
The Vital Sync™ early warning score (EWS) app requires the use of the Vital Sync™ virtual patient monitoring platform (VPMP) 2.6.
