Working with VitalConnect

IoT is starting to have a greater stake in healthcare with each passing year. IoT is one way patient outcomes are improving and healthcare costs are reducing. One company contributing to IoT solutions in healthcare is VitalConnect.

VitalConnect was founded in 2011 and is dedicated to delivering healthcare solutions. Being a Silicon Valley company, it leverages the power of connected technologies to deliver on this promise by tapping into critical patient information beyond an intensive care environment. The company developed The Vista Solution to make continuous patient monitoring possible anywhere in the world. But there was one problem with this solution. While the concept was fairly simple, its technical execution was going to be difficult.

VitalConnect turned to Integron to put the solution into application. Integron being an expert in the matter understood the hardware requirements, source of the best product and budget. Integron helped VitalConnect with hardware procurement and directed the systematic loading of mobile device management and application software. Integron ensured that each device in the connected devices network was properly configured and kitted to meet the requirements while being ISO and FDA complaint.

Results:

-Patients could freely move, rest and recover without the removal of wires and devices

-The physicians had centralized view of vital signs which reduced the need for repetitive manual measurements and spot checks by nurses

-Continuous monitoring of the patient without disturbance

-Monitor multiple hospital units, including outpatient care from one location

-Remote monitoring of patients at home reducing the risk of readmission
