The most essential component of examining a patient is obtaining their vital signs. Vital signs are usually recorded at the initial moment when the patient is evaluated. In the out-patient setting,the vital signs are usually recorded only once. If they are abnormal, the patient may be advised to seek emergency medical treatment. Research studies have suggested that patients in the pre-hospital setting, Emergency Room, General Ward patients, and ICU should be monitored in a real-time basis. With our SmartHospital device and software package, access to patient`s live data is just one click away, without the need for an onsite data center.
Reduced response time is the key to superior healthcare management. It is well documented that earlier intervention leads to improved patient outcome. Starting from managing patient’s appointments and hospitalization to reporting lab results, monitoring vital signs and maintaining medical records, SmartHospital is designed to save time, reduce costs, and improve efficiency. Our SmartHospital software package is considerably easier and cheaper to set up, maintain, and upgrade than onsite data centers while providing many additional patient benefits like direct messages to nursing staff.
As clinical research points out the continuous nature of the monitoring provides an ongoing picture of the patient's condition rather than typical monitoring by a staff member, which measures only episodically without the ability to trend data. As a result, some early deterioration signals can be missed as they occur between the times that the staff measures the patient's vital signs. Also there are several key benefits to monitoring a patient’s vital signs remotely.
The most obvious being that the clinician can evaluate a patient without being in front of them. This allows for more frequent evaluation, with less risk of infection transmission in cases of pandemic, or a faster doctor response in situations of clinical emergencies or overcrowded hospitals. This will vastly improve the outcome of the treatments and enhance patient satisfaction.
