Representatives from Sotera Wireless will discuss the impact of continuous patient monitoring on improved healthcare outcomes at the upcoming AAMI conference in Tampa, Fla. “Advances in Surveillance Monitoring: Improving Patient Safety Outcomes” will feature Rosemary Kennedy, chief nursing officer, and James Welch, executive vice president of product development, discussing how hospitals can use monitoring to quickly detect patient deterioration and increase patient safety. The session will be held on June 6 at 7 AM. 

“Multiparameter surveillance of patients is becoming an important new standard of care, aimed at reversing the unacceptable level of avoidable patient incidents,” said Kennedy. “We hope this session will equip attendees with a greater understanding of technologies that address the full complement of vital signs, their utility and integration capabilities, and how the value of improving patient safety outcomes can be measured.”

Welch recently coauthored an article for the May/June 2016 issue of BI&T about developing a mature framework for alarm management. Guidelines from the paper will be discussed during the presentation.

Sotera representatives will also be available during the conference at the company’s booth to demonstrate the ViSi mobile system. The wireless, wearable platform captures a range of patient parameters including heart rate, respiratory rate, systolic blood pressure, SpO2, pulse rate, and skin temperature.
