In a data-rich environment, the most crucial signs may go unnoticed.
Critical care is a one of the most technology-dependent, data-rich environments in the hospital.
High-fidelity data in this setting is crucial in enabling early detection of deterioration and prompt clinical decision-making.
With up to 2.2 million data elements1 and 770 alarms2 generated, per ICU bed, per day it’s easy to see that monitoring these variables and alarms can take a toll.
Compounding this problem is the fact that clinicians aren’t always getting the data they need at the bedside, further impacting their decision-making and patient outcomes.
Data Coordination is Challenging 74 % of nurses reported that the coordination of data collected by medical devices is burdensome 3 High Rate of False Positive Alarms 90 % of all alarms in critical-care monitoring are false positives 4 Patient Experience Affected by Alarms 18 % of bedside clinicians reported patients experiencing adverse events related to alarms at their institutions 5 Critical care is data rich and insight poor.
Dozens of monitoring devices, each generating enormous amounts of siloed data.
This data is complex and dynamic, requiring a high degree of integration and context to be interpreted effectively.
Lack of timely, evidence-based decision support and guidance.
The problem is aggravated by the sheer volume of alarms, which can distract and overwhelm caregivers.
The right data at precisely the right time.
