Philips stated that over 40% of unanticipated hospital deaths happen in the General Ward, where it is hard to predict which patients to watch closely. Hence, obtaining vital signs in real-time using EWS enables clinicians to identify subtle signs of deterioration in a patient's condition at the point of care, hours before a potential adverse event occurs. Lakeland Health first implemented Philips patient monitoring technology in June 2016, where the amount of rapid responses advanced significantly with the number of cardiac and respiratory arrests decreasing by about 56%.
Lakeland Health is a community-owned health system, which includes three hospitals, an outpatient surgery center, a cancer center, rehabilitation centers, long-term care, hospice, home care services, and physician practices. Lakeland Health views the IntelliVue Guardian Solution as a remarkable approach to eliminate potential transcription errors and also offer caregivers immediate access to patients' vital signs, hence reducing delays in treatment time. With the assistance of Guardian Solution, the caregivers will be now well equipped with the latest information and will be notified of changes in a patient's vital signs may put them at risk for conditions such as sepsis, cardiac arrest, or respiratory failure. Also, the frequent monitoring with automated EWS enables caregivers and Rapid Response Teams to respond earlier.
According to Philips, having automated tools that deliver a comprehensive view into a patient's condition not only helps in identifying potential patient deterioration, but it also helps enhance workflow efficiencies by simplifying the medical documentation and better utilizing limited staff resources.
