John Zaleski, PhD, CAP, CPHIMS, Chief Analytics Officer of Bernoulli, the real-time leader in patient safety, is featured in the May/June cover story of RT Magazine, “Patient Monitoring and Alarm Fatigue.”
The article notes that alarm fatigue continues to remain a significant patient safety threat and details how clinicians can mitigate this problem.
Zaleski says that hospitals and health systems need better understanding of their current state environment, including clinical workflows, patient cohorts, and assessments in order to develop comprehensive guidelines and protocols for clinical alarm management.
As for solutions, Zaleski recommends one with integration capabilities. “Combinatorial alarms take multiple sources of information and bring it together to corroborate events. This is not simply limited to data extracted in real time from patient care devices at the point of care, but also can be drawn from ancillary sources.”
Presentation will highlight how real-time patient data delivery to mobile clinical communication platforms improves safety, efficiency and care quality.
Milford, CT—February 7, 2017—Bernoulli and PatientSafe Solutions are teaming up at the 2017 Annual HIMSS Conference & Exhibition (HIMSS17) in Orlando to demonstrate how access to real-time patient data, alarms and waveforms delivered on a workflow-driven secure communication platform seamlessly extends hospital communication and patient infrastructure.
The demonstration will be held Monday, Feb. 20 through Wednesday, Feb. 22, at the PatientSafe booth (#815) and features the award-winning Bernoulli One™, which enables real-time collection, aggregation, and distribution of patient-generated data (including alarms and waveforms), integrated with PatientTouch®, a care collaboration platform that unifies secure messaging, voice, alerts, nurse calls, EMR data and clinical workflows all in one mobile app, on one device.
Medical device and alarm data routed instantly through a secure mobile platform provides frontline caregivers immediate access to a patient’s condition, enabling greater insight, faster response, improved patient safety and more efficient care delivery.
“Hospitals are experiencing a dramatic acceleration of mobile device adoption alongside increased focus on healthcare value and care coordination,” said Si Luo, President and CEO of PatientSafe Solutions. “Integrated patient and clinical context is a critical ingredient for success. Our demonstration of Bernoulli’s real-time data delivery highlights an innovative solution to drive improved patient safety and satisfaction.”
PatientTouch is a context-driven care collaboration platform that improves productivity and clinical performance by unifying communication with clinical workflows like specimen collection, rounding and assessments. The solution interfaces to EMRs and other clinical and IT systems to deliver relevant patient and clinical data in one app on one device for the entire frontline care team.
“With today’s mobile workflows, a clinician’s ability to deliver timely interventions is greatly hindered without anytime, anywhere access to real-time patient data,” said Janet Dillione, CEO of Bernoulli. “PatientSafe is an ideal and innovative partner to show hospital leaders and clinicians a clear path toward improved patient safety, quality of care and collaboration.”
Bernoulli One collects, aggregates, and distributes patient-generated data (including alarms and waveforms) from a broad range of medical devices in real-time. This provides caregivers with instant access to a holistic and medically contextual portrait of a patient’s condition, which is critical for timely clinical interventions and enhanced patient safety.
In addition to the demonstration with PatientSafe, Bernoulli will be present at the HIMSS17 Interoperability Showcase (Hall F, #9000), where they will be demonstrating use cases in Surgery & Recovery and Childhood Asthma. Links to the tours and demonstrations can be found here and here.

Bernoulli One™ Recognized by KLAS as One of the Best Platforms for Alarm Reduction and Management
Bernoulli middleware platform well positioned in 2016 to combat notification fatigue in hospitals and health systems
Milford, CT—December 12, 2016—A new report by KLAS — Alarm Management 2016: Which Vendors Are Best Positioned to Help Reduce Notification Fatigue?—rated Bernoulli, the leader in real-time connected healthcare, as one of the top vendor options for clinical alarm management and alarm reduction.
As a result of KLAS’s evaluations with Bernoulli customers, the healthcare industry analyst firm gave Bernoulli an 86.7 overall middleware satisfaction rating for Bernoulli One™, 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 a single solution.
Alarm Management 2016 noted that customers were satisfied with Bernoulli’s responsive support and alarm customizations; that the company’s complimentary webinars were found to be valuable; and that Bernoulli’s reporting helped providers perform status checks and details on alarm time stamps, system performance and clinical intervention notifications.
Customer Feedback Indicates Improved Outcomes
Feedback collected by KLAS from Bernoulli customers offers powerful evidence that the company’s solutions empowers clinicians to drive better outcomes, improve the patient experience, and enhance provider workflow.
Representative quotes within the report include:
Alarm Configuration. “Bernoulli has provided the greatest guidance in terms of reducing notification fatigue. Not only does their system configure to critical alarms so that we don’t have many nuisance alarms, but also Bernoulli has given us a lot of information about how we can program our equipment to ensure that we don’t have frequent nuisance alarms. That makes a big difference.”
Best Practices & Education. “Bernoulli has been very good at sharing best practices with us. Bernoulli has webinars that I send… my techs to. Bernoulli is providing education, and that is always appreciated. Bernoulli is flexible, accessible, and timely. They are very supportive. Bernoulli is always accessible for support. The product is user friendly and is a great safety adjunct, depending on the facility layout.”
Alarm Reduction & Management. Bernoulli told us how their middleware could be programmed and what we would need in order to reduce the number of nuisance alarms. About one-fourth of our alarms were nonactionable, and when we shared that with Bernoulli, they coached us in how to be more selective so that we could ensure that the nuisance alarms would go away. Their suggestions certainly worked.”
“It’s always an honor to be recognized and validated by the customers we work with,” said Janet Dillione, CEO of Bernoulli. “Bernoulli prides itself on being more of a partner than a vendor. And that beyond delivering a solution, we are offering our customers—and the broader healthcare industry—objective thought leadership and best practices in order to enhance patient safety and streamline the workflows of clinical staff.”
