Visensia® – The Safety Index™ – Designed with Simplification, Risk Identification and Prevention in mind.
Layouts of the various Visensia® displays are designed to help Clinicians make sense of vital sign data, that in some instances can be complex and that may vary from device to device and from organisation to organisation in a busy environment that requires information to be clear and concise.
Visensia® – The Safety Index™ fuses vital sign data into one numerical index (The Safety Index™ – VSI), representing the patient’s wellness throughout their hospital stay. The VSI and the contributing vital sign data are then displayed hospital wide, providing simplification, helping aid clinicians in recognising those patients at the greatest risk of deterioration. Visensia® automatically alerts staff to patients whose vital signs have moved away from normality, bringing attention to that patient and helping to address the issue of responding to deterioration.
Visensia® – The Safety Index™ provides a single, highly reliable data point for caregivers to refer to when communicating a patient’s condition to other team members.Visensia® is effective because it can be trusted and helps to prevent “failure to recognise” by facilitating early identification of patients at risk.
Visensia® helps eliminate “failure to communicate” in crisis situations by providing a single health status index that all clinical team members can recognise, reference and respond to.
Accelerate response times. Having a reliable pre-crisis alert tool for Rapid Response Teams (RRTs) and other clinical teams can help improve response time system wide, leading to enhanced patient safety and outcomes
Issues with traditional paper based Early Warning Scoring Systems – Track & Trigger systems in the Inpatient – Acute Hospital Care setting have been highlighted in a number of recent news articles and clinical studies and a solution to aid caregivers to better identify deteriorating patients through simplification and automated risk identification to improve patient safety is required.
A solution like Visensia® – The Safety Index™ can be the next vital step in helping to overcome these challenges…
While warning times vary greatly from patient to patient and from hospital to hospital, in clinical trials the average warning time was over 6 hours before the MET would have otherwise been called. This early and accurate lead time has been reported in real world hospitals to have numerous benefits:
Visensia® and can be configured to show patients in individual – private rooms, wards or floors depending on your site requirements. The Drill Down display and displays that are similar to it, show the vital signs and the VSI values for the patient currently selected, along with any currently active warnings for each of the vitals being received.
Patients are ranked from the highest VSI to the lowest VSI, allowing nurses to, at a glance; identify those patients at the greatest risk of deterioration and helping to establish the acuity of patients assigned to them. The display shows, in graph form, a history of the patient’s VSI and a history of the values for each vital sign and the time when the values were last recorded.
Visensia® can help nurses identify the subtle trends in vitals that are signs of instability or deterioration, helping them to intervene earlier.
