Vital Sync™ VPMP is our EMR connectivity and remote continuous patient monitoring software solution. It allows clinicians to remotely view patient information from multiple device categories (ventilators, capnography monitors, pulse oximeters, depth of consciousness monitors, and regional oximetry) on any web enabled device (smartphones, tablets, desktops, Workstation on Wheels, central nurse station) and send this information to the electronic medical records and clinical information systems. Vital Sync™ VPMP also supports ADT connectivity and alarm forwarding systems. Vital Sync™ can improve clinical teamwork and communication, economically enhancing patient safety and clinician efficiency.
