Reduce the risk of delayed or missed messages in your Clinical Alarm Messaging
In a clinical environment physiological monitors are constantly sending warning and critical level alarms to your staff. These alarms must be managed carefully and reliably transmitted to the appropriate personnel within in a matter of seconds. Any delay here dramatically increases the risk to patient safety.
As a practical matter, alerting personnel to a clinical alarm is measured by three characteristics:
The probability that the system will be ready when needed. (uptime)
Unlike other alerting solutions, the Critical Response System is physically small self contained system that limits outages due to external forces (congestion, network failures, etc).
Additionally users have the option to add full redundancy, thus providing an affordable option to for 99.99999% uptime.
How quickly messages are delivered to users (throughput or latency)
By eliminating unnecessary communications and grouping common messages into standard group messages, the system is able to keep bandwidth low while increasing practical throughput.
The result is a consistent user experience, with messaging performance at a very predictable 5 second latency, even in the worst conditions.
The effort required for personnel to use the system
The Simpler a system is to use, the more likely it will be used correctly and effectively. Response paging systems are low in complexity, from the standpoint of personnel carrying pagers as well as personnel administering the system.
The devices are simple four button units with an LCD and a speaker, users receive an alert and with a single button press can confirm or deny the ability to respond to an alarm.
