“With preventable patient adverse events and clinical workflow issues on the rise, it’s imperative that the healthcare industry looks for ways to alleviate these challenges,” said Peter Ziese, business leader of Monitoring and Analytics at Philips. “Integrated technology with smart algorithms, like EarlyVue VS30, can benefit both clinicians and patients by limiting transcription errors and providing early risk-based alerts for timely interventions – allowing clinicians to, confidently and proactively deliver care.”
The EarlyVue VS30 monitor has received 510(k) clearance from the FDA and is available for sale in the U.S. Additional information on Philips’ full suite of integrated patient monitoring solutions is available here.
