When Data is Siloed, Care is Compromised.

Patient data is one of the most valuable assets in health care, but it is an asset not always available to clinicians.  Bedside devices offer just a snapshot of data and the effort it takes to monitor and analyze data from a series of standalone devices leads to desensitization, alarm fatigue and information gaps. Gaps in data can lead to gaps in care and result in a reactive approach based on trial and error. Tools developed using AI have given us the ability to make highly-informed clinical decisions, but they’re only as good as the inputs they receive.

Health systems are looking to improve quality and lower costs through more precise and proactive care. These models rely on a steady stream of high-fidelity data, integrated and disseminated in a way that enables critical insights.

Data can be a distraction rather than a guiding tool.

  • Documentation takes up to 35% of a nurse’s time 4
  • Manual documentation isn’t just time-consuming; it’s also error prone 5,6
  • Clinicians don’t have access and visibility to critical data, with only < 0.1% captured and charted in the EMR 7
  • Inconsistent and inaccurate data can impact coordination and handoffs and lead to gaps in care

Visibility of data empowers clinicians and improves care.

  • A secure infrastructure that connects data across care settings, with one of the world’s largest integrated ecosystem of medical devices and applications
  • Aggregates, standardizes and contextualizes data and makes it accessible at all points of care, giving clinicians ready access to the information they need
  • Intelligent connectivity management systems can also capture data at the bedside, reducing documentation time from hours to minutes while reducing the transcription error rate to zero 8
  • High-quality streaming data feeds algorithms that deliver insights to clinicians caring for the highest acuity patients
