Continuous surveillance, automation and alarm management with a single solution

For many years, the number of ventilators and the complicated layout of the units forced the Hospital for Special Care’s respiratory therapists to spend much of their shift racing from room to room responding to hundreds of non-actionable alarms.

The critical nature of ventilators as life-support devices and the volume of alarms they produced were major drivers in HSC selecting Capsule as their partner to implement a solution that would enable their team of respiratory therapists to provide continuous surveillance monitoring of patients, while reducing non-actionable alarms and enhancing patient safety.
