Designed to improve patient care so that clinicians can intervene more quickly, IntelliVue Guardian with EWS includes among others connectivity to the Philips Wearable Biosensor – a medical-grade, self-adhesive, single patient-use wireless device that automatically and continuously measures key vital signs, including heart rate and respiratory rate.

By automatically acquiring vital signs data from its specified and network-connected medical devices, Philips IntelliVue Guardian helps caregivers identify subtle signs of patient deterioration early, often hours before an adverse event occurs. The solution also contains intelligent clinical decision support algorithms that allow caregivers to obtain vital signs data and integrate it with the patient’s electronic medical record (EMR). Validated patient data can be sent directly to the EMR, helping to reduce human error and save time. As soon as the system detects a patient deterioration, a notification can automatically be sent to the appropriate caregiver’s smartphone, enabled by Philips’ innovative CareEvent event management mobile app.

Having automated tools that provide a comprehensive view of a patient’s condition helps to enhance workflow efficiencies, simplify the medical documentation process, and better utilize limited staff resources.

“This project is the epitome of how smart technology can support quality of care,” said Ronny Goethals, Medical Director at the Maria Middelares Hospital. “Automated measurements and wireless technology will help us transform the way care is delivered and enable us to implement additional improvements in the care trajectory through extensive data analysis based on algorithms. This will allow care providers to fully concentrate on providing personalized care.”

“Philips’ IntelliVue Guardian Solution with EWS and Wearable Biosensor technology provides clinicians with peace of mind that their patients are being monitored more frequently while they attend to other tasks, as well as providing patients with much greater freedom of movement,” said Henk Valk, Market Leader Benelux at Philips. “Having automated tools that provide a comprehensive view of a patient’s condition helps to enhance workflow efficiencies, simplify the medical documentation process, and better utilize limited staff resources.”

The latest version of Philips’ IntelliVue Guardian Software has been available in countries requiring CE Marking since January 2018, and has been available in the U.S. since early 2017.
