VitalConnect has introduced its Vista Solution 2.0 during HIMSS 19.
The updated system now features weight scale, blood pressure and pulse oximetry via third party devices, and core temperature to the existing eight vital sign measurements monitored by the VitalPatch bionsensor. This includes single-lead EKG, heart rate, heart rate variability, respiratory rate, skin temperature, body posture, fall detection, and activity [steps]), the company said.
VitalConnect’s VitalPatch is used in post-discharge settings and in the hospital, and is a Class II medical device.
The additional information gives physicians more predictive analytics built in, the company said. To develop 2.0 the company worked with customers such as the Mercy Health system.
“Mercy Virtual is committed to transforming healthcare by creating new care models supported by telehealth teams and technology,” said Mark Saxon, vice president of clinical operations for Mercy Virtual. “Vista Solution 2.0 will support us in this mission by providing our clinicians with unprecedented access to information for informed decision making on patient care, while also giving patients peace of mind that their condition is being monitored as closely as possible.”
