Automated Vital Signs Data Capture with Mobile Vitals Plus™
Automatically capture, validate and send vitals right from the point of care
In non-critical care environments, such as med-surg, nurses or nurse technicians round on the patients, collect vital signs and manually record the patient’s vitals on paper. After all patient vitals have been collected, and when the clinician has time, they then key the vitals into the patient’s record. This process is prone to documentation errors, omissions and delays – all of which compromise efficiency and the quality of patient care.
Mobile Vitals Plus, from Capsule, simplifies this process and allows clinicians to automatically capture, validate and send vitals right from the point of care, before they have even left the patient's bedside.
