Torrence Sound: Revolutionizing Patient Care and its Role in Surveillance-Level Data Monitoring
The critical shortage of clinical staff, exacerbated by the long-standing nursing deficit, has reached new heights due to the lasting impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. A recent report reveals that over one-third of nurses are contemplating leaving their roles by the end of 2022, intensifying the competition for nursing professionals among hospitals.
In response to staffing challenges, hospitals are grappling with capacity limitations, prompting a need for innovative solutions to ensure safe and effective patient care. Recognizing the significance of addressing these challenges, the healthcare industry stands at the forefront of providing technologies and informatics solutions to enhance patient care and streamline the efficiency of healthcare practitioners.
The article, ‘The Importance of Surveillance-Level Data Monitoring in Hospitals,’ from Philips, emphasizes the pivotal role of surveillance-level data in transforming healthcare practices. Playing a key role in this transformation, Philips advocates for the integration of live streaming surveillance-level data throughout the entire hospital, not just in critical care units.
Access to real-time surveillance-level data allows practitioners to stay informed about a patient’s status across various care settings. This proactive approach enables healthcare professionals to move from reactive responses to adverse events to proactively addressing potentially life-threatening impending situations.
The benefits of surveillance-level data are profound, particularly in identifying signs of deterioration that may lead to life-threatening events. By leveraging streaming data from connected medical devices, aggregated and analyzed to generate actionable insights, clinicians can minimize and prevent adverse events. Philips emphasizes the importance of continuous patient monitoring, going beyond traditional vital sign measurements to provide a comprehensive view of a patient’s physiological status.
