Remote patient monitoring can significantly decrease call response times and reduce falls, length of stay, and hospitalization by up to 80 percent.([FOOTNOTE=Agboola S, Jethwani K, Khateeb K.

VitalSyncTM remote monitoring and clinical decision support (CDS) system can help you prioritize and save time.
After integrating remote patient data with a display system, nurses at one hospital gained 30 minutes per day.([FOOTNOTE=Turisco F, Rhoads, J.

An early warning score (EWS) can help you quickly assess the severity of a patient's condition. An EWS pulls from physiologic data including blood pressure, heart rate, respiratory rate, and observational data such as level of consciousness.
Automated early warning scores can help rapid response teams respond more quickly and improve patient outcomes.([FOOTNOTE=Bellomo R, Ackerman M, Bailey M, et al. A controlled trial of electronic automated advisory vital signs monitoring in general hospital wards. Crit Care Med. 2012;40(8):2349–2361. doi: 10.1097/CCM.0b013e318255d9a0.],[ANCHOR=],[LINK=])
You rely on multiple data points to deliver quality care — from sampling lines and electrodes to pulse oximetry and capnography. Integrating data with smart algorithms can help reduce nuisance alarms while alerting you to clinically significant events.
