Bernoulli case study details multi-hospital medical device connectivity

Bernoulli, the real-time leader in patient safety, has published a new case study detailing its successful efforts to bring medical device integration to Virtua, one of New Jersey’s largest non-profit, multi-hospital health systems.

Utilizing Bernoulli’s standards-based, open architecture Bernoulli One™ system enabled Virtua to bring medical device integration and connectivity across a complex healthcare ecosystem with an integrated, scalable, secure, and cost-effective web-based platform.

Virtua’s need for medical device integration and connectivity grew in part to free clinicians from writing out hundreds of patient data numbers from scores of different devices and machines every day in the course of care delivery. The health system wanted a plug-and-play medical connectivity paradigm that was uniform across different departments, could seamlessly interface with their Epic EHR, and could easily scale with the health system’s future growth.

With the conclusion of the Phase I integration in Virtua’s Perioperative Department, which includes Endoscopy, ECT and Interventional Radiology, the health system has realized complete electronic documentation, which has allowed clinicians to devote more of their time facing the patient and meeting their care needs.

Phase II will focus on Virtua’s Critical Care Unit, which includes the ICU and NICU/PICU, and will integrate the units’ physiological monitors, ventilators, anesthesia machines, smart tourniquets, and brain activity monitors.

Bernoulli One, the company’s flagship platform, is the market’s only real-time, end-to-end, connected healthcare platform that combines comprehensive and vendor-agnostic medical device integration with powerful middleware, clinical surveillance, telemedicine/virtual ICU, advanced alarm management, predictive analytics and robust distribution capabilities into one solution.

Bernoulli’s vectored event grid architecture enables true interoperability across disparate devices, networks, and systems by utilizing dynamically programmable intelligent appliances at the network edge. The system’s granular level of patient data detail, in real-time, at the point of care for improved decision support applications while also providing flexibility for user-defined configuration and control for device connectivity, monitoring and management, results in better allocation of personnel resources and reduced support costs.

at Risk of Respiratory Depression, rdss

Bernoulli chosen for Real-Time Surveillance for Patients at Risk of Respiratory Depression

It has been well-documented that patient populations managing chronic illnesses or co-morbidities, such as sleep apnea and obesity, are particularly vulnerable to respiratory depression. Current practices for monitoring patients receiving opioids are still not adequate or comprehensive. For example, reliance on periodic physical spot checks by direct-care clinical staff can leave patients largely unmonitored up to 96% of the time.

An award-winning not-for-profit community hospital chose Bernoulli One™ to enable real-time surveillance of post-operative patients who were at risk for respiratory depression. Following the success of that initial implementation, the hospital has subsequently expanded usage to all at-risk patients being monitored by pulse oximetry and capnography, while leveraging the Bernoulli platform for alarm management, reducing the estimated number of alarms by 78%.

According to the health system’s director of respiratory care services, “Bernoulli became just a part of our day-to-day operations. We’re able to safely monitor patients across the entire facility without the constant distraction and fatigue of responding to false alarms. Our nurses and respiratory therapists know it’s there and know it’s working.”

NorthShore Case Study: Medical Device Integration across a Health System to Support Patient-Focused Care

NorthShore Case Study: Medical Device Integration across a Health System to Support Patient-Focused Care

comppicture3NorthShore University HealthSystem partnered with Nuvon—now Bernoulli—to deliver medical device connectivity and integration in order to provide enhanced quality of care and patient safety at the health system’s four Chicagoland hospitals.

Bernoulli  developed, deployed and implemented medical device connectivity within anesthesia and critical care areas, including surgical services in the Operating Rooms and supporting departments at all four of NorthShore’s hospitals. Supporting departments include Gastroenterology, Catheterization Lab, Interventional Radiology, Computed Tomography, Labor and Delivery, and Pain Clinic.

Bernoulli’s Nuvon VEGA platform delivers on its promise of accurate, real-time patient data, anytime, anywhere, because it is the only system that delivers these five unique benefits:

  1. Best patient care outcomes with real-time synchronized patient data that are available wherever the patient is, and wherever the clinician is, on multiple platforms like workstations, tablets, or Smart phones.
  2. Lowest overall cost of ownership, with a single system management controller that does not require expensive add-ons as the hospital expands connectivity.
  3. Maximum reliability, with plug and play connectivity supporting the automatic identification patient care devices of any make and model, and a dashboard providing technicians with real-time monitoring and alerts so they can remotely address issues before the clinician realizes that a problem exists.
  4. Highest level of patient data security and privacy, with data encrypted from the point of capture and throughout the transmission and data access protected by authentication.
  5. An MDI platform integrated with rules and post-processing that enables creating new information, notifications, analysis and reports from the discrete data collected from the bedside.

HSC case study - acheiving clinical clarity form ventilator overload

Achieving Clinical Clarity from Ventilator Overload Case Study

HSC’s Achieving Clinical Clarity from Ventilator Overload case study summary:

The Bernoulli One™ enabled HSC to achieve real-time surveillance of more than 100 patients on ventilation support and reduce the number of ventilator alarms by an estimated 80%, helping achieve compliance with The Joint Commission NPSG on alarm management. Bernoulli’s intuitive, intelligent software allows HSC’s team of RTs to provide continuous monitoring of vital patient information and intervene before a situation becomes critical, enhancing patient safety. The data collected is leveraged by Respiratory Care Services in reporting to the Performance Management Audit Committee, which monitors ventilator management performance, and also helps identify potential areas of need. The system also automates processes that were previously done manually, such as manual ventilator checks, which frees up the RT to focus more on the patient rather than the ventilator.
