The ROI of Continuous Surveillance

The successful implementation of real-time patient safety initiatives has long been a goal of health system leaders. Unfortunately, parsing alarms from individual medical devices, reliance on physical spot checks of patients, and the lack of rules-based advanced analytics to assess a patient’s current condition in real-time or identify signs of deterioration puts that achievement out of reach for many hospitals and health systems.

Creating the Foundation for Real-Time Healthcare

The successful implementation of patient monitoring initiatives that improve patient safety has long been a goal of healthcare leaders across the country. Unfortunately, parsing notifications from individual medical devices, reliance on physical spot checks of patients, and the lack of rules-based analytics to assess a patient’s current condition in real-time or identify signs of deterioration puts that achievement out of reach for many hospitals and health systems.

Patient safety in the era of value-based care is increasingly defined as preventing adverse events before emergency interventions or costly escalations are required. However, most common monitoring practices are reactive, not proactive; meaning, interventions are often applied only after a patient has deteriorated.
