Quality care depends on relevant patient information, sent to the right caregiver, at the right time. Having the tools to help visualize alarm workflows and manage clinical data effectively, efficiently, with clarity can help cuts through the clutter of data from multiple medical devices, helping clinicians evaluate care area alarm strategy, identify priority tasks, respond quickly, and make sound decisions.
Join us on the 18th of October at 2pm (AEDT) to discuss some key challenges we see in the industry related to registration of vitals ad clinical score in an electronic medical record (EMR). And how the Ascom Healthcare Platform aims to assist with ensuring the correct data are made available sooner in the EMR, providing a solid foundation for appropriate and timely clinical responses.
Agenda: • Key Challenges in clinical environments • Why are we focusing on making vital signs and scoring registration easy • Vital Signs - The basics • Early Warning Score • Next Generation Tools - Bedside data registration • Delivering measurable benefits • Workflow examples
