Discussion About the Use of ViSi Mobile at RadboudUMC
To detect a patient's timely deterioration, Radboudumc has been using ViSi Mobile, a continuous monitoring system developed by Sotera Wireless, Inc., for some time. Whereas previously the nurse measured the five vital signs of the patient at fixed times, this is now done 24/7 by a small box on the wrist. Recently, with the help of #machine #learning techniques, the decline is detected early or even predicted up to hours in advance. In addition to improved patient safety, this also saves time for the nurses. For Zorg Enablers 2020, we spoke to Harry van Goor and SJH (Bas) Bredie, initiators of the ViSi Mobile project, about the increasing demand for continuous monitoring and its added value for the healthcare providers and patient. We talked at length about the challenges and developments during the pilot and implementation phase and what the upscaling goals are for the future. Read the full floor in ViSi Mobile below!
