Continuous Surveillance Monitoring – a Chat with Brian McAlpine

Medical Connectivity interviewed Brian McAlpine, VP of Strategy and Business Development at Bernoulli Health to discuss real-time continuous clinical surveillance and extending continuous monitoring of patients in units such as med-surg, critical care, step-down and telemetry. They discussed how technology assisted clinical surveillance increases safety, lowers costs and offers timely and accurate clinical decision support to identify patients who are developing problems.

This may seem like a subtle difference, yet, the approach means a shift in philosophy: proactively identify those patients who are likely trending towards adverse events versus sending a reactive notification of the event’s occurrence. This shift requires detecting, validating, and communicating developments in patient conditions using smart alarms.

During the webinar we will focus on the different types of smart alarms and how they can help to identify patient deterioration. We’ll also discuss “shoulder tap” communication of smart alarms and how they enable timely patient intervention.


  • What is continuous clinical surveillance, and how does it differ from the data typically captured by MDDS for use cases like clinical documentation?

  • What do you see as the key use cases that will drive continuous clinical surveillance adoption with the early majority market

  • How does clinical decision support tie into continuous clinical surveillance?

  •  What systems integration requirements are there for continuous clinical surveillance?

  • Is it possible to integrate data from devices made from different manufactures?
