Early detection can make the difference between life and death.

Patients typically show signs of deterioration 8 to 12 hours before a critical event.1  Now, you can ensure early signs of deterioration are recognized and your care teams know how to respond. Designed to supplement your EMR’s Early Warning Scoring System (EWSS), our system uses hospital-configured scoring systems and interventions to identify patients at risk and guide care teams right at the bedside. This optional add-on to Capsule Chart Xpress* or Vitals Plus is the ideal tool for non-critical care areas.

Reliable, accurate assessment of patient decline

  • Registers subtle changes in vital signs captured through Chart Xpress or Vitals Plus
  • Provides an immediate acuity score based on your custom-configured algorithm
  • Eliminates manual errors while reducing lag time and guesswork with computerized calculations

Actionable insight reduces complexity and informs timely interventions

  • Sends score to alarm management systems to activate rapid response teams
  • Guides care teams step-by-step through the recommended actions
  • Displays vital signs history and the previous four scores to place new score in clinical context, regardless of the Chart Xpress or Vitals Plus device

Helps hospitals continuously improve response protocols and outcomes

  • Transmits results to appropriate downstream systems to support safety initiatives
  • Automates early recognition of deterioration so it’s more predictably assessed
  • Can mitigate adverse events and mortality associated with failure to rescue
