Bernoulli to Attend AAMI Foundation National Coalition for Alarm Management Safety

Bernoulli to Attend AAMI Foundation National Coalition for Alarm Management Safety

Bernoulli will take part in the AAMI Foundation’s National Coalition for Alarm Management Safety meeting July 20-21. Bernoulli CIO John Zaleski will be in attendance, as well as representatives from two of Bernoulli’s customers—the Connecticut-based Hospital for Special Care and New Jersey-based Virtua.

The goals of the meeting include determining the unmet needs in hospitals struggling to improve alarm management that the coalition should address, and what deliverables can be developed to fill those needs. In addition the coalition will continue to:

  • Build a common taxonomy around alarm signals and alarm conditions that industry, clinicians, and nursing orgs agree to adopt so all may communicate more effectively about alarms.
  • Build and populate a cloud-based database to generate improved algorithms for alarms and smart alarms.
  • Build national database to collect device alarm parameters contributed to the database by the participating hospitals.
  • Develop new tools and resources for improving alarm notification to reduce alarm fatigue.

“Bernoulli’s level of partnership and involvement in working with the foundation and its stakeholders demonstrates its commitment to improving patient safety,” said Marilyn Flack, Executive Director of the AAMI Foundation. “I am very grateful to the Bernoulli team for their help in working to prevent patients on opioids from experiencing poor outcomes due to undetected opioid-induced respiratory depression and for their help in working to reduce non-actionable clinical alarms.”

Bernoulli is a premiere partner with the AAMI Foundation and works closely with the foundation and its stakeholders on two important patient safety initiatives: National Coalition for Alarm Management Safety; and the National Coalition to Promote Continuous Monitoring of Patients on Opioids.

Alarm management and continuous monitoring for patients on opioids are two of the top patient safety priorities in healthcare today. Bernoulli supports hospitals and health systems in their efforts to achieve full compliance with the Joint Commission’s National Patient Safety Goal on clinical alarm safety and also enables continuous, real-time surveillance of patients connected to virtually any medical device.
