Our Solution

Get the patient-centric alarm data and decision support tools you need to optimize alarm limits for an individual patient in 2 minutes or less

Determining what alarms to make changes to across the institution is the first step in meeting NPSG. However your patient population is always changing. In order to realize ongoing alarm noise reduction you need to find a way to optimize alarm limits for the highest alarming patients.

PatMon Alarms makes this possible.. It gives care providers the web-based tool they need to perform optimization during rounds in 2 minutes or less. It also gives clinicians a view into trends so they can see if the care plan needs to be changed and go from managing alarms to managing care. Listen to the AAMI webinar replay to see how Texas Children’s did just that and why they received the ECRI award for improving team communication, care, and overall patient experience.

  • See historical view of patients alarms in past 24 hours
  • Compare patient’s average against norm and unit settings
  • Get specific recent indications for how patient alarms would have been impacted if limits were changed
  • Optimize alarm limits for an individual patient to reduce nuisance alarms

“I had a patient who kept having brady alarms but the doctor didn’t want to change the limits. I showed the doctor the statistics and decision support tool in PatMon Alarms: ‘It’s gone off 56 times in the last 3 hours, since midnight’. It changed the conversation from alarms to improved patient care. He was comfortable changing the alarm limits and made a few tweaks to the care plan making the room quieter, patient more comfortable, and allowed the staff to focus on real events.”
