Is there a Difference between Telehealth and Remote Patient Monitoring?

Remote Patient Monitoring Devices can make your job easier, whether you're an IT expert or a hands-on healthcare provider. Healthcare workers have already purchased or are in the process of buying one.

Vital Sign Monitoring For Early Intervention In General Care Units

Patient monitoring in low-acuity general hospital wards is now dependent largely on nursing staff's intermittent observations and measurements of the vital signs. In a fast-paced environment, timely detection of changes in vital signs may provide a critical early indication of potential health problems. Continuous wireless vital sign monitoring provides an effective and efficient means of patient vital sign monitoring in general care units.

Continuous monitoring of bodily functions improves patient safety

The ViSi Mobile is a wrist monitor that can measure the most important bodily functions of patients day and night (24/7). After almost 5 years of trial runs and scientific research, Radboudumc will now use this wrist monitor in 7 departments and 117 beds to improve patient safety. Research shows that thanks to the wrist monitor and the timely identification of patient deterioration, there are 32% fewer unplanned ICU admissions.

When COVID-19 Strikes Your Hospital

As a hospitalist on the front lines of COVID-19, I know firsthand how the homeostasis of a hospital is altered when community cases of COVID-19 increase. For example, emergency departments immediately enact novel pathways and protocols for triage, evaluation, and admission (1). Hospitals begin to assess and enhance inpatient capacity, often by opening units not traditionally used for general medical care (for example, postoperative care units) as COVID-19–designated areas (2). Additional tactics, such as decreasing elective surgical cases, merging specialized intensive care units (ICUs), and offering staff moonlighting opportunities to increase critical care capacity, are also pursued. And in short order, hospital command centers spring up to monitor patient flow, streamline communication, and coordinate activities ranging from patient visitation policies to media releases (3).

ViSi Tip - Ambient Light

Ambient light occurs when an external light interferes with the optical sensor of a pulse oximeter. To prevent any issues with the ViSi Mobile thumb sensor, follow these steps.

Improving Nursing Workflow with ViSi Mobile

ViSi Mobile is an extremely useful tool for not only providing continuous vital sign monitoring but also for improving nursing workflow.

What is Telemetry and Why It's Being Overused

Over the years, telemetry monitoring has moved away from the acute care setting and into specialized telemetry units and onto general medicine floors with remote telemetry capabilities4. According to recent studies, more than fifty percent of patients ordered telemetry lacked relevant cardiac histories or medical indications...

ViSi Mobile Shows Patient Vitals on a Remote Viewer Display

All patients being monitored with ViSi Mobile, will be shown on a Remote Viewer Display, also known as the RVD as patient tiles or patient monitoring sessions.

ViSi Mobile Allows Patient to Sleep Comfortably in Hospital

Patient, Anastasia Sant Augustine, shared her experience with ViSi Mobile at Palomar Medical Center where she was recovering after a car accident in San Diego, CA. She was able to sleep more comfortably because the system was able to monitor her vital signs wirelessly, and she was able to get the rest she needed to recover.
