Improving Patient Safety in Real-Time

One Platform: Clinical Surveillance, MDI, Real-Time Data Analytics

There are a few key things that separate Bernoulli One™ from any other system. Patient health monitoring and advanced clinical surveillance are among these things. Our far-reaching data collection ability and what we do with the data is another. We believe that data is knowledge and knowledge is powerful. Like other medical device integrators, we can get the data. But we go farther. We get old and new data. Past and present. Retrospective and real-time. And connect it to paint a picture for clinicians. A picture of what could happen if things don’t change.

What Does “Real-Time” Really Mean?

There is some ambiguity in defining “real-time”. Here we define what “real-time” means to Bernoulli and illustrate how our real-time data can improve your workflows and patient outcomes.

Bernoulli real-time data collection – A key advantage to real-time data collection is greater granularity into a patient’s situation. Bernoulli aggregates high-frequency, streaming data. For comparison, data manually entered in the EHR is only valid if the patient’s condition is unchanged from the time of collection to the time of data entry. Retrospective EHR data is not an accurate representation of a patient’s current condition and could cause serious safety risks.

Consider this example of a nurse caring for an elderly patient admitted with congestive heart failure. The nurse hasn’t had time to chart the last two sets of patient vital signs or the patient’s input and output. The last two sets of blood pressure have decreased to a dangerously low level. And since the beginning of the nurse’s shift nearly eight hours ago, the patient’s urinary output has exceeded input. Signs that point to severe dehydration. A life-threatening situation. Going by the data charted in the EHR several hours prior, the physician unknowingly orders an improper dosage of medications. The patient is given the new medication causing her blood pressure to plummet. The rapid response team is notified.

In a different scenario where Bernoulli was in use, the nurse would have received an early warning notification indicating a trend in decreasing blood pressure and this would have been avoided.

Bernoulli real-time data analysis – Bernoulli analyzes data as frequently as six seconds or as quickly as a device will allow. By immediately analyzing real-time patient vitals and pairing the results with retrospective data from the EHR, Bernoulli One can detect events before they occur.

Bernoulli real-time notifications – The system sends an alert to the appropriate caregiver when a worsening condition is detected. Early intervention can make all the difference.
