The state of healthcare today has created complex communications challenges for clinicians and hospital staff. With the number of patients rising and the number of clinical support staff dropping, many caregivers are overwhelmed by clinical interruptions, which can increase the likelihood of medical errors and alarm fatigue.
To mitigate these risks, many progressive healthcare facilities have created clinical command centers to centralize management of patient alerts/alarms and clinical surveillance. These virtualized clinical command centers enable hospitals to operate at maximum efficiency without the need to expand staff, increase the number of work hours, and/or sacrifice the quality of care.
Imagine a central control center much like NASA or the airline industry where real-time patient information from all relevant software and medical devices provides a comprehensive picture of patients more so than what can be ascertained from a single solution or device.
Clinical Workflow Manager – Flexible, Customizable & Easy-To-Use
Our Patient Request Palette, a component of our clinical workflow manager, is completely customizable and supports patient’s clinical needs as well as any other patient-related notifications and actions emanating from the patient room which we refer to this as our Patient Event Bus.
The Patient Event Bus consumes data from anything that rings, dings, or buzzes and indicates a patient’s condition or need, enabling true real-time care team collaboration.
