Feb. 15, 2007 - Royal Philips Electronics announced the introduction of Philips ProtocolWatch, an application available on Philips IntelliVue patient monitors that applies patient monitoring data to evidence-based care protocols. This new clinical decision support application, as well as the newly released IntelliVue MP5 patient monitor for in-hospital patient transport, will be showcased at the Philips exhibit booth at the Society of Critical Care Medicine's (SCCM) 36th Critical Care Conference, February 17-21 in Orlando.
A new development in clinical decision support at the bedside, ProtocolWatch is the first application to deliver customer-specific care protocols on the patient monitor screen. ProtocolWatch uses monitoring measurements to offer relevant screening and treatment information from evidence-based care guidelines.
ProtocolWatch streamlines the process of checking a patient's monitoring data against evidence-based care guidelines. It allows hospitals to use their IntelliVue patient monitors to implement care protocols, helping to elevate the standard of care and improve compliance with regulatory mandates.
