Optimizing The Research Flow: How Wireless Vital Signs Can Help

In 2010, the Institute of Medicine Roundtable on Value & Science-Driven Health Care examined ways to improve the way clinical research is conducted in the 21st century. It concluded that the ideal would be a virtuous circle in which research and practice worked closer together, feeding in to one another.

“Where we are ultimately headed,” the report concluded, “is to establish the notion… of a learning healthcare system. This is a system in which evidence is generated as a byproduct of providing care and actually fed back to those who are providing care, so that we become more skilled and smarter over time.”

Now, as we enter the third decade of the 21st century, wireless vital signs monitoring is poised to enable this vision.

Case Study: The University of New England and NSW Health

Background

Virtual hospitals have become strategic for modern healthcare organizations, where patients’ vital signs are monitored remotely using wireless technology. Virtual care enables medical teams to track hundreds of ‘remote patients’ at any given time, resulting in far more efficient use of resources and alleviating the strain on physical hospitals.

Public health expert Professor Rod McClure, Dean of Medicine at University of New England, is the pioneer of virtual hospitals in Australia and was asked by New South Wales Health in Australia to come and set up the country’s first virtual hospital, with the aim of providing remote healthcare for patients with chronic conditions, many of whom live a long way from their nearest hospital.

Clinically Distanced Monitoring – keeping Patients and Clinicians Safe

During the peaks of the Covid-19 pandemic, the last place you wanted to find yourself was in a hospital. The high incidence of severe cases of Covid-19 among hospital clinicians was a reflection of just how dangerous their work is when it brings them face-to-face with patients suffering from a highly contagious virus.

Minimizing the risk to clinicians has been one of the key learnings from this experience, along with the need to be able to scale patient care rapidly and flexibly, the need to provide earlier diagnoses and interventions and the need to learn fast and deploy staffing resources as efficiently as possible.

In all these requirements, remotely distanced wireless patient monitoring holds the key.

Beyond The ICU: Maintaining Standards in Remote Patient Monitoring

Continuous, uninterrupted Patient Monitoring is a critical element in the treatment of intensive care patients. Vital signs such as temperature, respiratory rate, heart rate and blood pressure must be kept under constant surveillance, as early recognition and prompt treatment of escalating symptoms improves recovery rates and reduces the risk of prolonged hospitalization or worse.
