At the Intersection of Insight and Intervention
In Medical Surgical (Med-Surg) units, every moment you spend with patients counts. As part of Baxter, we’re here to help you connect each of those moments of care with actionable insights and efficient workflows.
Connect Care Teams
When workloads rise, efficient communication becomes even more critical. In addition to reducing burdens for clinicians, hospitals that adopt clinical communications applications have seen significant improvements in time savings, accuracy and clinical workflows.
With unified clinical communications, you can spend more time where it counts — at the bedside.
Reduce Alarm Fatigue
Without the right context and coordination, alarms can add more noise than knowledge.
What if you could cut through the noise and elevate what’s urgent? We help you do it with clinical communication solutions that reduce cognitive burden while connecting your care teams to your patients — and each other.
Reduce Manual Data Entry
Your care teams need timely patient vital signs to inform the best clinical decisions. But is manual entry into the EMR presenting an avoidable obstacle?
Save valuable time and reduce the potential for errors. Our connected patient monitors and medical device integrations automate data entry, then deliver the patient data you need, where and when you need it for charting and clinical use — from the EMR to the palm of your hand.
Detect Signs of Deterioration
Warning signs can be identified 6-8 hours before a critical event.1 With continuous monitoring of heart rate, respiratory rate and other vital signs, we help you spot them sooner, so you can intervene earlier.
Reduce Hospital-Associated Infections
Infection control is top of mind in med-surg units everywhere — and for good reason.
Now you can keep a watchful eye while reducing risk. Help limit potential infection exposure with dedicated devices and accessories — and help identify signs of HAIs at the earliest indications — with continuous monitoring where you need it.
We prioritize falls prevention in so many of our products to help you:
- Monitor bed states
- Automate bed exit alerts based on patient fall risk status in the EMR
- Suspend and re-arm bed exit alerts based on caregiver presence
- And much more
From smart beds to clinical communications to safe patient handling equipment, we design our solutions to help patients mobilize safely and reduce their risk of falls.
Reduce Pressure Injuries
The negative impacts of pressure injuries on patients cannot be understated — and their impacts on healthcare spending are equally jarring.
Pressure injuries are pervasive and urgent issues, but they’re also preventable. To better protect your patients’ skin — and their outcomes — look to your surfaces.
Improve Staff Safety with Real-Time Precision Locating
Violence against clinicians has long been a pressing concern for the healthcare industry – with violence in healthcare about four times more prevalent than in any other industry.2 The right technologies can help support a safer environment.
Alert the right response teams to unsafe scenarios at the touch of a button
Real-Time Staff Locating
Further improve safety by tracking staff locations for quicker responses to duress alerts
Count on precise locating and easy-to-use duress alarms to help you protect your teams.
