Comprehensive solutions to address patient deterioration
Smart patient care and clinical intelligence where and when you need it
The general care floor encompasses a wide range of patients with varying conditions and needs. Sicker patients, unexpected clinical deterioration and lower nurse-to-patient ratios means your staff's job is increasingly more difficult.
We work with you to identify solutions to help in identifying potential patient deteriorations and tailor them to your organization’s needs and goals. Our portfolio of products, solutions and services ranges from advanced technology, devices and clinical algorithms, to clinical services, training and education that can be deployed as a comprehensive solution to solve your specific challenge in lower acuity care settings.
