Philips is releasing its latest Patient Monitoring solution in the U.S., a product designed to help hospitals keep track of patient monitor data as they move from one clinical area to another. The offering revolves around the company’s IntelliVue X3 transport monitor and it allows clinicians to easily combine all the data gathered in the OR, ICU, as well as during transport, and review it all together as a continuous record. This is important, as moving from one monitor to another typically means that clinicians can’t go back and review a patient’s history, limiting their decision making.
Using the new product, a hospital’s patient monitors automatically feed their readings into a central EMR. From there, data can be accessed anytime through other monitors to which the patient is connected to. Having the same cables across the monitors makes it easier to move patients between wards.
Philips plans on showing off its new solution at the HIMSS conference in Las Vegas in March.
