Formerly known as Vitalpac, Vitals is our market-leading electronic observation system, designed to improve patient safety and outcomes.
Key components of Vitals:
- Electronic observation: Vitals enables a clinician to take patient observations electronically, removing the need for paper charts altogether. A nurse can manage scheduled observations based on clinical need, reducing the time spent on routine tasks and freeing up staff time for care. Patient deterioration is detected early and escalated to the relevant doctor or specialist team. This ensures faster rescue, improving outcomes and reducing length of stay.
- Assessments and screening: these procedures are completed at the bedside with full connectivity to pathology and radiology results. Common Vitals assessments include dementia assessment, VTE assessment, nutritional screening & alcohol assessment.
- Alerts: Vitals provides a powerful and scalable alerting capability and ensures that subscriptions are configured to suit different workflows. This functionality helps users receive selected, immediate updates on a patient as soon as an alert is triggered.
- Fluid management: the Vitals fluid management module simplifies the task of monitoring a patient’s fluid balance by integrating the electronic recording of a patient’s fluid inputs and outputs with observations. This intuitive functionality allows clinical staff to record the volume and nature of each fluid input and output accurately. Balances and charting are automatically generated and accessible across all modules. Accurate, timely charting means clinical staff can make critical decisions promptly.
- Sepsis: the Vitals Sepsis NICE Module delivers comprehensive functionality to identify, risk-stratify and audit the delivery of appropriate care for patients with potential sepsis, in accordance with published NICE guidance. The module uses a combination of EWS and qSOFA scores to identify patients at risk of sepsis, guiding clinical staff through an easy-to-follow workflow with the aim of aiding and supporting clinical decision-making. The module also supports all key indicators required by the national CQUIN “Reducing the impact of serious infection”.
