Patient Monitoring for the Clinical Informaticist

Posted by Andrew Wescott on Mar 17, 2016 @ 09:24 AM

Information technology produces vast amounts of data; however, in order to be truly useful, systems need to be integrated and data requires proper patient context. For example, vital sign measurements alone are not actionable without knowing patient demographics, history, and current observations. Vital signs can also contribute to the calculation of an early warning score to detect early identification of a patient’s decline. This information can be sent to a handheld nursing device as an alert or to a unit view in the EMR. In this example, multiple technologies - an electronic medical record, a medical device, a clinical calculator, and a nurse call system - are all integrated to provide actionable information to busy clinicians.

Under the Hood of Medical Devices

Posted by Kevin Phillips on Oct 01, 2015 @ 04:00 AM

This article was orginally published on September 11, 2015 in Hospital EMR and EHR.

When it comes to medical devices, most people think of patient monitoring and physiologic data such as HR, SPO2, respiration rate waveforms and physiologic alarms. But there’s a lot more “under the hood” of a device – a lot more than just physiologic data that, when applied in new ways, can contribute to patient safety efforts and help with operational efficiencies.

Harnessing the Power of Medical Device Data

CHALLENGE: Optimizing the management and use of medical device data

Government mandates, quality initiatives, and incentives have encouraged healthcare delivery organizations to more rapidly implement information technology throughout their respective enterprises, especially when it comes to automating the documentation of patient care in their electronic medical records.  Only recently, though, have they begun to realize the unique value of medical device data elements — a combination of physiologic data, therapeutic device settings, and alarm information — to provide powerful clinical and operational insight and support, and to drive other applications essential to patient care and safety.
