The Vital Links system enables nurses to record more than the standard patient vital signs. By scanning an ID barcode on a patient’s armband, the monitor verifies the patient’s identity with the EMR. The technology allows for capture of the vital signs data as well as nursing information such as a patient’s pain scale or other clarifying information. The nurse then validates the data and saves it to the EMR, all while interacting with the patient. Vital Links improves data accuracy and saves time for clinicians by updating the EMR instantly. Clinicians can access information wherever the EMR is accessible, prompting quicker response when a patient needs assistance.
