Bernoulli®, a leader in real-time connected healthcare, today announced the successful go-live of its advanced Bernoulli One™ clinical surveillance, medical device integration (MDI), and real-time data analytics platform at Virginia Hospital Center (VHC), located in Arlington, VA.
Using Bernoulli One, varying brands and types of patient care devices including physiologic monitors, ventilators, incubators, CRRT systems, and perfusion equipment as well as the hospital's Epic EHR are now integrated. The deployment spans multiple units including anesthesia procedure areas, pre- and post-operative beds, Gastrointestinal, Intensive Care Units including ICU, NICU, and Cardiac ICU, Stepdown, Emergency Department, Cath Lab, and Interventional Radiology.
Further, a once laborious manual process of printing and scanning waveform strips by nursing staff is now an automated process with Bernoulli One. Bernoulli integrates both scheduled and on-demand patient ECG waveform reports with clinical annotation directly into the patient's EHR record. "This is a huge time saver for nurses and physicians," said Mike Mistretta, Chief Information Officer of Virginia Hospital Center. "The workflow enhancement will speed data entry, waveform reviews by physicians, and will positively impact cost savings while supporting quality of care."
Bernoulli One supports integration with a comprehensive array of medical devices and clinical systems from every major manufacturer using standards-based data protocols and the existing network infrastructure. Bernoulli pairs historical data from the EHR with real-time streaming data to identify early signs of patient deterioration. The solution's FDA Class II clearance means it can be used for active patient monitoring as well as secondary alarm notification.
A cost-effective solution, Bernoulli provides comprehensive connectivity and platform monitoring tools that do not require expensive add-ons, easy plug-and-play device connectivity, the highest level of patient data security and privacy, integrated clinical mobility and positive patient association.
According to Janet Dillione, Chief Executive Officer at Bernoulli Health, "Virginia Hospital Center choose Bernoulli in part because of our proven track record with medical device integration but also because our team was able to fulfill their request to automate the waveform report to EHR process. We believe many hospitals can take advantage of this functionality to help reduce the burden of documentation and enhance caregiver satisfaction. We are pleased to provide these capabilities to VHC and all of our hospital and health system clients."
