Royal Philips Electronics has introduced a new telemetry system featuring bidirectional communication between patient-worn transceivers and bedside monitors, and a central station with remote clinician access:
“It offers a wider range of solutions that enhance clinical data accessibility and improve a care team’s efficiency. Lightweight wireless transceivers allow patients to walk around or rest in bed comfortably while being monitored. Clinicians can access powerful, user-friendly clinical decision support tools on the IntelliVue Information Center. Additionally, administrators recognize the value of built-in, scalable reporting tools that can be easily integrated with existing information systems. Overall, the IntelliVue Telemetry System is designed to meet the needs of today’s wireless, digital hospital,” said Russell [David Russell, vice president, global marketing, patient monitoring for Philips Medical Systems–ed.]
The IntelliVue Telemetry System, which operates in the protected 1.4 GHz Wireless Medical Telemetry Service (WMTS) band, coexists with Philips digital telemetry systems, wireless bedside and transport monitors, and even a hospital’s own WiFi systems. The IntelliVue Telemetry System features Smart-Hopping technology to avoid interference and seek out the strongest available signal for seamless data transmission as patients roam within the hospital…
Lighter and smaller transmitters enhance the capabilities of the existing Philips Telemetry Systems. All Philips telemetry solutions can coexist in the same space without interference, making it possible for hospitals to phase their transition between systems.
