We’ve changed the way vitals are documented to give your staff access to accurate patient data anytime, anywhere. Vitals documentation today: prone to errors and missing information. Why compromise your EMR investment by relying on manual transcription of vital signs? When vitals are captured and recorded on a piece of paper for manual entry into the EMR later, it’s easy to transcribe them incorrectly, enter them into the wrong patient’s record, or never enter them at all. And even when vitals are entered correctly, there’s a delay between the time they’re captured and when they’re actually posted into the EMR. This can make staff less efficient—and force physicians to delay clinical decisions or make them without the latest information, potentially putting patients at risk. The Welch Allyn Connex Electronic Vitals Documentation System Automates the vitals documentation process to reduce errors, ultimately enhancing clinical decision making, minimizing risk, and improving patient safety. The Connex Electronic Vitals Documentation System provides wireless transmission of patient vitals data from the point of care into the patient chart in your EMR. This dramatically reduces the time and labor required to document data and thereby eliminating transcription errors. The Connex EVD System helps you deliver the highest level of patient care: > Provides clinicians with faster updates of changes in a patient’s vital signs > Intuitive and easy-to-use design - integrates into your department’s workflow, so staff won’t have to learn new ways to work - eliminates need to type vitals data into your EMR > Makes complete, accurate information available when it’s needed - improves efficiency and helps deliver positive patient outcomes Add it all up, and you get a considerable return on your investment—in both the Connex EVD System, and in your EMR. Quick and easy: Automating vitals documentation allows clinicians to identify themselves and the patient, then capture and wirelessly transmit the readings to the EMR—eliminating extra steps and ensuring that vital signs are accurately documented. Designed for medical/surgical and noncritical care floors. At Welch Allyn, our experience helps us understand frontline care and the people who provide it. That’s why we don’t simply try to retrofit an ICU solution for noncritical care settings. Workflows are different. There’s no need for duplicate data confirmation. So we created this complete system for electronic vitals documentation specifically for medical/surgical and general care floors—adding to our legacy of innovation. > Provides immediate access to accurate data The Welch Allyn Connex EVD System An end-to-end solution that includes the Connex Vital Signs Monitor, Accessory Cable Management Stand, Connex Vitals Management (VM) Software, and Partners in Care comprehensive service and support. Getting accurate patient information to the people who need it, when they need it, has never been more important—and with the Connex EVD System, it’s never been more possible. Connex Vitals Management Software The backbone of the Connex EVD System works behind the scenes to seamlessly integrate and manage data from discrete data sources and repositories (EMR, ADT, and devices). > Communicates directly with the Connex VSM via your wired or wireless network* > Two-way communication capability allows users to transmit: – vitals data (NIBP, temp, SpO2, etc.), manual parameters (pain, respiration, weight, height, etc.), and modifiers (patient position, NIBP site, 02 source, etc.) at the bedside—from the device directly into your EMR – patient demographic data (name, etc.) from your ADT system back to the monitor for positive patient identification at the point of care Accessory Cable Management Stand This unique mobile stand is ergonomically designed for efficiency and ease of use.
