Netherlands-based Royal Philips has introduced its suite of next-generation patient monitoring solutions with an intuitive, portable IntelliVue X3 transport monitor in the US.

The Patient Monitoring system comes with transport, bedside, mobile and central station monitoring technology as well as options for consulting, training, services, and customer support.

Developed to improve patient care, accelerate clinical performance and aid in lowering costs for health systems, the monitoring system acquires detailed patient data from monitors and medical devices.

The captured data is securely sent to the hospital’s electronic medical record (EMR) for virtually gap-free patient records, even during transport, where various independently operated devices are used.

Designed to fit into existing IT systems, the integrated solution delivers vital signs, waveforms, and alarms to caregivers directly.

“We are aiming to provide clinicians with smarter alarms and seamless solutions to lower the chances of preventable adverse events while helping them to improve patient care.”

These clinical decision support tools and advanced algorithms are expected to provide caregivers with better visibility into the changing condition of a patient.

Royal Philips Monitoring and Analytics business leader Felix Baader said: “The healthcare industry is making strides to address clinician pain points, but issues such as lack of complete patient data and exhaustive alarm fatigue still remain.

“We are aiming to provide clinicians with smarter alarms and seamless solutions to lower the chances of preventable adverse events while helping them to improve patient care.”

Philips incorporated similar monitors for all its bedside, transport and mobile devices to ensure consistency, minimise complexity, and improve care throughout patient transports across the hospital.
