Did you know alerts and alarms can help improve patient safety, reducing the risk of sepsis?

How? By sending proactive alert and alarm notifications directly to care team members on their mobile devices – when and where they need them most. Advantages:

Early Warnings of Deterioration Speed Sepsis Risk Response

Augusta Health has saved nearly 300 lives that could have been lost to sepsis through an automated process that uses Vocera technology for alerting.

Pain Assessment Reminders Help Prevent Drug Overuse

Caregivers need to receive timely reminders to assess pain levels and administer medications.

Phoenix Children’s Hospital sends a “nudge” notification over the Vocera Platform to a nurse who hasn’t updated a patient’s pain score within 45 minutes of administering pain medication. The nurse can respond directly to the notification with the pain score, which will automatically update in the EHR.

Bed Exit Alarms Help Prevent Falls

The University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences reduced falls by 11 percent and fall-related injuries by 60 percent in its first year of sending bed exit notifications to care team members on their mobile devices, resulting in $1.27 million in savings.

Prioritizing Physiological Alarms Helps Curb Interruptions

According to The Joint Commission, 85 to 99 percent of alarms don’t require clinical intervention. Filtering out the noise so only actionable alarms are delivered can reduce the risks associated with alarm fatigue.

Staten Island University Hospital reduced the number of alarms sent to nurses on their smartphones from 13,000 to 1,000 per day after implementing an alarm management system to deliver only actionable alarms with clinical context.
