VitalConnect®, Inc., a leader in wearable biosensor technology for wireless monitoring in hospitals and remote patient populations, announced today the launch of the Vista Solution™ platform. The Vista Solution platform enables wireless, real-time, continuous patient monitoring, and delivers a seamless feed of patient data that supports timely caregiver analysis in the hospital or at home.
The new platform integrates the company’s existing VitalPatch® wearable biosensor, which is the only FDA cleared Class II device that continuously measures eight biometrics in real-time. Together, the Vista Solution and the VitalPatch biosensor offer an elegant, best-in-class solution that increases patient mobility and comfort, provides oversight without additional caregiver burden, and enhances patient care.
The Vista Solution platform is a complete end-to-end solution that improves monitoring standards in both hospitals and in remote care environments. The platform enhances patient safety in the hospital general ward by providing monitoring between periodic spot checks that can span up to eight hours (once per shift). Vitals for all patients are now easily accessible at nursing stations or remote monitoring centers through the cloud-supported VistaCenter™application, as well as in individual patient rooms. In home care environments, such as home-hospitalization or post-discharge monitoring, remote and continuous monitoring have shown significant cost savings, fewer readmissions, and improved rest for the patient.
“Waking patients up multiple times in the middle of the night for a vitals check is required for most hospital patients. This is disruptive for the patient and time-consuming for nursing staff. The VitalPatch brings a light, wireless, and comfortable solution to patient monitoring. Now with our Vista Solution, caregivers will have continuous insight into their patients, and can intervene when additional care is needed between spot checks,” said Dr. Nersi Nazari, chief executive officer and founder, VitalConnect.
The Vista Solution platform was piloted in collaboration with Mercy Virtual. It will be launched in Mercy Hospital St. Louis, and then deployed to additional hospitals and outpatient settings across Mercy facilities in four states in 2018. Read more about the collaboration by clicking here.
