Bernoulli Health Publishes New eBook on How Clinical Surveillance Impacts Patient Safety and Operational Efficiencies

Bernoulli Health, the developer of the advanced Bernoulli One™ clinical surveillance, medical device integration (MDI), and real-time data analytics platform has released a new eBook entitled, Continuous Clinical Surveillance: A Business and Clinical Case for Creating the Foundation for Real-Time Healthcare. The eBook provides a framework for understanding the value and purpose of clinical surveillance technologies in hospitals and across enterprise health systems.

The Case for Continuous Clinical Surveillance

Reducing false alarms has been the subject of countless meetings, lectures and peer-reviewed studies. Many approaches have been identified for reducing alarms in high-acuity settings. For example, Görges [2] showed that a 14-second delay before alarm presentation would reduce non-actionable alarms by 50%. A 19-second delay would reduce this further to 67%.

The increasing complex state of health care and compounding nursing vacancies are playing a role in un-achieved outcomes and putting patients at risk. This is the reality that most hospitals face today. More critically-ill patients are seeking care and are being cared for by fewer clinicians.
