Philips has implemented IntelliVue MX40 technology at Hurley Medical Center, a 443-bed public, nonprofit, teaching medical center located in Flint, Mich.
Clinicians at Hurley addressed the challenges raised by monitoring patients through multiple-night visits with IntelliVue MX40 technology. IntelliVue MX40 provides a view of vital patient information at the patient’s side, whether that patient is in bed or up and moving. The mobile monitors (about the size of a deck of cards) help clinicians spend more time with patients since the IntelliVue MX40 display allows them to check ECG rhythm, rate, pulse oximetry, trends, and monitoring status. Additionally, the monitors can stay with the patients even if they are moved to a different floor or area of the hospital.
Hurley is the first installation among multiple orders for the IntelliVue MX40 systems in the Midwest. The IntelliVue MX40 system will be used across four floors of the hospital, allowing flexible assignment of monitoring throughout a patient’s experience.
