Vios Monitoring Solution

Showcase

Overview

The Vios Monitoring System is a wireless, FDA-cleared patient monitoring platform designed to improve resident safety and outcomes. The system continuously monitors 7-lead ECG, heart rate, oxygen levels, pulse rate, respiratory rate and posture. It can be paired with Remote Monitoring Services for 24/7/365 monitoring by a team of cardiac-trained technicians that alerts the on-site care team in real time if there is a change in a resident’s condition.

Features and Benefits

Preventing Resident Transfers back to the Acute Care Hospital

Post-Acute HCF’s are, now more than ever, being tasked with caring for high acuity, medically-complex Residents. Readmissions to Acute Care Hospitals consequences include: A potential 2 percent reduction in Medicare payments starting October 1, 2018, for higher-than-expected readmission rates the previous federal fiscal year, A loss of referrals from hospitals that won’t send their patients to underperforming post-acute care providers, A loss of referrals from patients and families who use publicly available readmissions data to make decisions about where to receive post-acute care, Higher costs from providing additional medical care to patients who were not cared for properly during their post-acute care episode. Continuous Vital Signs Monitoring (cVSM) has long been the gold standard for the early identification of significant clinical deterioration of at-risk patients. Spot-checking vitals every 4, 6 or 8 hours can leave them at risk for the occurrence of adverse events. The Vios Monitoring Solution allows the on-site Care Team to quickly identify and treat the early signs of clinical deterioration potentially avoiding a transfer back to the Acute Care Hospital.

Staffing Shortages

Staffing shortages across the nursing home and assisted living industries have forced most facilities to reduce new admissions and rely on overtime shifts and pricey agency hires to maintain operations, according to a new industry survey. Across a sample of 1,183 long-term care providers polled by the American Health Care Association and the National Center for Assisted Living (AHCA/NCAL), 99% of nursing homes and 96% of assisted living communities said they are facing some degree of staffing shortages. Fifty-nine percent of nursing homes and 30% of assisted living communities characterized their staffing situation as “severe.” The Vios Monitoring System, when coupled with Remote Monitoring Services (RMS), becomes an extension of your on-site Care Team. You can be assured that someone is “always watching” even when a caregiver is not in the room. Clinical staff know their residents are being monitored as they care for their total resident assignment. The Vios Remote Monitor Technicians remove the oversight and alarm burden from the clinical teams to ensure utilization and integration into clinical practice.

Clinical Efficiency & Workflow Optimization

The on-site Clinical Care Teams are often being asked to do “more with less” due to staffing challenges and due to the lack of newer technology. The Vios Monitoring System is fully integrated with PointClickCare and the monitored vital signs will be automatically uploaded into the resident’s chart for clinical review. This benefit reduces time lags, eliminates transcription errors and allows the on-site teams to focus on important resident care activities. In addition, all of the ECG and Vital Signs Reports will be uploaded into PointClickCare for the Clinical and Medical Teams to review.

Pressure Injuries

Pressure injuries (PIs) are a significant concern for patients with very limited mobility in skilled nursing facilities. Almost 11% of long-term care residents in the US develop a PI during their stay; prevalence can exceed 20%. Individuals in nursing homes, especially those receiving mechanical ventilation, are at increased risk for developing a PI because of lack of mobility, decreased oxygen delivery, and poor nutrition status. The Vios Chest Sensor has a built-in 3-axis accelerometer that detects and displays the resident’s posture in real-time. The Vios Monitoring System can be customized based on the turn orders and intelligent algorithms are used to determine when a compromised patient is at-risk of developing a pressure injury. In addition, the Vios Remote Monitor Technicians can notify the staff if a resident turn is required further reducing the incidence of these costly and dangerous pressure injuries.

Integrated with PointClickCare

The Vios Monitoring System is fully integrated with PointClickCare and the monitored vital signs will be automatically uploaded into the resident’s chart for clinical review. This benefit reduces time lags, eliminates transcription errors and allows the on-site teams to focus on important resident care activities. In addition, all of the ECG and Vital Signs Reports will be uploaded into PointClickCare for the Clinical and Medical Teams to review.
