The in-patient care areas of the Intelligent Hospital™ are demonstrated in the combined ICU and general Ambulatory care areas, illustrating both the high acuity and low acuity patient care scenarios. Both environments demonstrate state of the art clinical devices and sensors, integrated through a combination of connectivity and RTLS / RFID solutions. Advanced monitoring systems, ventilators, and infusion pumps deliver patient support and metrics on the status of the patient.
The patient care areas facilitate the transfer of physiological data, both wired and telemetry, to the medical record, while simultaneously enabling the delivery of critical parameters and alarms directly to the appropriate care providers at the point of care. A variety of handheld devices demonstrate the sending of text messages and waveforms, along with either VoIP or mobile cell staff-to-staff communications, which enables rapid response to critical issues The ICU additionally incorporates bedside devices providing RFID based medication administration support, sample collection and point-of-care laboratory devices enabling seamless blood diagnostics for venous and arterial tests.
Patient centric identification using RFID and barcodes establishes and validates the unique relationship between the patient, staff, pharmaceuticals, and supplies ensuring that it is the right patient, right time and correct medication or sample. These critical associations are used in the delivery of patient care and validating that the correct information, supplies and pharmaceuticals are delivered to patients, significantly enhancing patient care and safety.
RTLS solutions are shown to ensure issues of compliance and security including; hand hygiene, infant protection, staff emergency and duress and equipment shrinkage reduction. RTLS integrations enable messaging to institutional databases, such as the CMS, to indicate device failure, requirements for PM, or need of additional devices, enabling engineering to provide a rapid response.
Overarching visualization and dashboards are used to dynamically monitor the status of the patient and environment.
