Solutions for Long-Term Care

Designed to help improve resident outcomes and workflow efficiency

As the elderly population continues to grow and residents’ acuity levels increase, the demands on long‐term care facilities continue to escalate as well. With cost constraints and higher resident‐to‐caregiver ratios, it’s more important than ever to have diagnostic equipment you can count on to help save time and improve the accuracy of resident information while still being cost effective. Hillrom can help.

Accurate, Automated Vitals Data Transfer

The Connex family of vital signs devices can automatically document and transmit resident vitals directly to your EMR. The Connex Electronic Vitals Documentation System is designed to help long‐term care facilities improve:

  • Timeliness and efficiency: Reduce duplication of efforts and delays in entering data. Vitals transmit directly to residents’ electronic records so clinicians have information at their fingertips to help them provide better care.
  • Quality of care: Proactively improve care plans and address risk management implications with accurate, timely vitals.
  • Accuracy: Wireless connectivity between the Connex devices and the electronic medical record can help reduce the opportunity for manual transcription errors.
  • Regulatory and policy compliance: Data is time‐stamped and dated, leaving an audit trail for complete accountability.

Connecting vital signs saves time at Martin Luther Care Center: 

“I have saved an estimated ten minutes per round by using the Welch Allyn Connex Vital Signs Monitor... I can use this extra time to care for my patients, tend to other tasks and possibly cut down on overtime. Not to mention the residents are safer because the human error factor associated with writing down vital signs has been eliminated. Any time-saver we can give front line staff is valuable—and safety is the number one concern for all our residents. This solution addresses both critical needs."
