Palomar Medical Center in San Diego County Introduces New Wrist-Worn Wireless Patient Vital Signs Device
Date:2/26/2013

with the hospital’s electronic medical record system, which will reduce the need to manually document patient vital signs.

The new groundbreaking technology is intended for general medical/surgical floor patients, who have traditionally been considered lower-acuity care patients. It will not be used in intensive care units, where patients are already being monitored continuously.

Nursing staff members who use the ViSi® Mobile system will not have to wheel around bulky monitoring machines whenever they need to check a patient’s vital signs. Nurses and doctors who want to do spot checks can do so without disturbing their patients.

“Patients being awakened from much needed sleep to have their vital signs taken will become a thing of the past,” Palomar Health Chief Nurse Executive Lorie Shoemaker said. “Rather than checking vital signs every several hours, our participating clinicians will be able to obtain continuous measurements without disturbing the patient, and receive instant alerts if a patient’s condition begins to deteriorate. At the bedside, they can simply tap the ViSi® Mobile monitor for an instant reading of heart rate and pulse, or they can check from a remote viewing device,” Shoemaker said.

“It’s always important to get patients up and moving around the units as soon as possible after surgery,” Shoemaker added. “With the ViSi®, Mobile we can watch their vital signs while they’re walking. If their heart rate changes, we’ll know that right away and take appropriate steps to keep them safe.”

Palomar Health’s historical first-use of the ViSi® Mobile System underscores the health care system’s commitment to making technological advancements in the delivery and management of patient care, said Palomar Health Chief Innovation Officer Orlando Portale.

“Having Sotera in our portfolio of innovative companies, positions Palomar Health, and the San Diego region at the forefront of the mobile health
