Overview

Collect. Display. Decide.

Quality care depends on relevant patient information, sent to the right caregiver, at the right time. Digistat® Patient Watch provides tools to help visualize alarm workflows and manage clinical data effectively, efficiently, with clarity. It cuts through the clutter of data from multiple medical devices, helping clinicians evaluate care area alarm strategy, identify priority tasks, respond quickly, and make sound decisions.

The Digistat Patient Watch can be configured to serve a department, a hospital, or an entire healthcare organization with multiple facilities – whatever you require. It is comprised of several components, and is scalable to accommodate your current and future needs:

  • Digistat Connect gathers data and alarms from multiple devices.
  • Digistat Smart Central displays bedside information on an intuitive interface.
  • Digistat Smart Central Mobile sends complete bedside data and alarms to clinicians’ handheld devices.
  • Digistat Dashboard provides trending of vital signs and alarm history, plus statistical analysis tools.

Digistat® Patient Watch comes to you from Ascom and a distribution partnership with GE Healthcare, companies with decades of experience and deep expertise in healthcare.

Benefits

Digistat Patient Watch helps you turn patient data into action. It delivers the information that doctors and nurses need, clearly and intuitively.

Helping address alarm fatigue
Digistat Dashboard shows the alarm distribution statistics for a given time frame. A report can be generated to show metrics for a single patient or multiple patients. A unit-wide visual presentation enables staff members to make decisions that can increase efficiency, save time, and improve resource utilization. This helps you implement procedures to reduce the number of alarms and evaluate the effectiveness of their strategy.

Helping organize patient care
Near real-time information displayed on large screens and on mobile devices can enable users to be informed at a glance about the situation in the ward. Digistat Patient Watch also provides automated, accurate device data collection, mitigating the risk of errors from manual data transcription. This can help caregivers respond appropriately to changes in patients’ condition and facilitate sound clinical decisions.

Supporting greater staff efficiency
An intuitive display, updated every few seconds, gives an overview of a single patient or multiple patients on one screen. Caregivers can quickly analyze aggregated data from multiple devices and make timely, proactive decisions.
