Patient Monitoring

Overview

Patient monitoring is critical in operating and emergency rooms, intensive care and critical care units, and recovery rooms as it provides a clear view of patient data to facilitate early diagnosis and timely decisions. By closely tracking a patient's vital signs, real-time monitoring systems translate patient physiological data into clinical information. The systems can also be integrated or connected using wireless technology and other medical devices or systems, streamlining medication and treatment processes, and reducing the risk of infection and other complications.

Applications

Perioperative Information System (PIS) in the OR

ThePerioperative Information System is a total anesthesia information system that supports clinical and administrative decision making at every phase of the perioperative process. Preoperative, intraoperative and postoperative data is recorded and documented for every phase of the procedure to produce a comprehensive patient record that links to existing patient monitoring equipment, anesthesia machines, and other equipment.

Clinical Information System (CIS) in the ICU

The Clinical Information System for the critical care environment integrates patient care applications and data management tools for fast, informed decision-making at the point-of-care.At the bedside, across a hospital network, or via the Web, CIS improves access to data and communications---and helps gather, organize and process information for cost management, outcome analysis, quality improvement and regulatory compliance.
