Acute patient management


Help identify at-risk patients early, react confidently to changing patient conditions and more precisely fine-tune treatment for every patient. 

Our integrated system of advanced physiologic monitoring, central station, mobile applications and clinical decision-support tools work together to provide the actionable insights your care teams need in the moment so they can:

  • Gain visibility into patient status anytime, anywhere;
  • Be notified of early signs of potential patient deterioration;
  • Proactively fine-tune treatment;
  • Rapidly adapt and scale patient monitoring;
  • Collaborate during care transitions and effectively decide the optimal time to transition.

Our standardized, interoperable acute patient management includes:

  • Advanced patient monitoring systems, measurements and sensors
  • Workflows designed to reduce administration and documentation time 
  • Continuous, near real-time data, and predictive insights and analytics
  • Whole hospital connectivity and end-to-end surveillance

Our s­­olutions can help clinicians detect, interpret and intervene to enable: 

  • Reduction in adverse events and medical errors
  • Reduction in length of stay, ICU readmissions and 30-day readmissions
  • Improved patient and staff experience and satisfaction scores
  • Decrease in staff fatigue and turnover
  • Decrease in patient-level total cost of care

Trends and issues that may benefit from acute patient management:

  • Widening gap between nurses’ experience levels and patient complexity as a result of staff turnover, contributing to more adverse events
  • Increase in older, sicker and more medically complex patient populations creating more unpredictable transitions and unplanned admissions
  • Increase in care team cognitive overload and burnout
  • Need for real-time data to plan resources and respond with correct course of care
  • Reimbursement penalties tied to care quality and readmission rates
