Technology is contributing to the transformation of healthcare facilities. Convergint Technologies, in partnership with Axis Communications, can help enhance patient care and improve hospital efficiencies with the incorporation of modern audio and video technology. By utilizing the latest IP cameras in conjunction with audio solutions and analytics, hospitals are able to closely monitor patients and provide critical information and alerts to the clinical staff, allowing for more proactive care and attention.
Life-Changing Response Times
A study published by JAMA Pediatrics discovered that alarm fatigue is an industry challenge. With the addition of audio and video technology installed in patient rooms and tied into a monitoring system, staff and patients both benefit from additional eyes and ears. This results in improved and more responsive care. Even when a patient’s vital signs are trending well, staff need to remain vigilant because even a minor spike in temperature or an unexpected drop in respiration can send a patient into distress. Plus any delay in responding to the situation can have dire consequences.
Benefits from modern video and audio technology include the ability to:
Enhance patient care and hospital efficiencies
Provide care that’s proactive instead of reactive
Improve emergency response times
Balance HIPAA privacy with patient observation
