Continuous monitoring of key bodily functions improves patient safety 32% fewer unplanned ICU admissions thanks to wrist monitor
The ViSi Mobile is a wrist monitor that can measure the most important bodily functions of patients day and night (24/7). After almost 5 years of trial runs and scientific research, Radboudumc will now use this wrist monitor in 7 departments and 117 beds to improve patient safety. Research shows that thanks to the wrist monitor and the timely identification of patient deterioration, there are 32% fewer unplanned ICU admissions.

When COVID-19 Strikes Your Hospital
As a hospitalist on the front lines of COVID-19, I know firsthand how the homeostasis of a hospital is altered when community cases of COVID-19 increase. For example, emergency departments immediately enact novel pathways and protocols for triage, evaluation, and admission (1). Hospitals begin to assess and enhance inpatient capacity, often by opening units not traditionally used for general medical care (for example, postoperative care units) as COVID-19–designated areas (2). Additional tactics, such as decreasing elective surgical cases, merging specialized intensive care units (ICUs), and offering staff moonlighting opportunities to increase critical care capacity, are also pursued. And in short order, hospital command centers spring up to monitor patient flow, streamline communication, and coordinate activities ranging from patient visitation policies to media releases (3).
