Zebra Technologies Corporation announced that Mindray Medical International has deployed Zebra TC52-HC touch computers to deliver critical patient alarms direct to front-line clinicians to streamline workflows.
This solution is in use at more than 200 hospital wards across Europe improving patient care and safety.
Mindray needed to centralize its patient alert system to prioritize critical alarms as well as increase clinician mobility and response.
The global medical instrumentation developer collaborated with Software Team, a Zebra PartnerConnect Independent Software Vendor (ISV) and Premier Business Partner, AISCI Ident GmbH.
“Staff can be fully mobile whilst never missing an important alarm,” said Andreas Engels, Patient Monitoring Life Support, IT Product manager PMLS Europe, Mindray Medical International. “Now all room monitors are connected to our centralized alarm management system, allowing clinicians to only enter individual patient rooms when necessary. This is increasingly important during the current COVID-19 pandemic and improves overall safety.”
The new solution reduces alarm noise and fatigue for medical staff, with only relevant and critical alerts sent to the touch computer of the correct clinician, at the right time.
This enhances staff efficiency, operational workflows and patient care. Clinicians can also access patient monitors and basic medical details via the application on the TC52-HC.
“With this new mobile solution, doctors and nurses can be flexible and work more efficiently, knowing they will be alerted whenever they are needed and the alarm will be escalated if they are unavailable,” said Sebastian Rethage, Business Development manager Healthcare, Zebra Technologies. “Noise on the wards is kept to an absolute minimum, creating a calm atmosphere conducive for patient recovery and care.”
