A minute and 16 seconds may not sound like a lot of time, but for nurses who often have high patient loads, every second matters.
Portland’s Marquis Vermont Hills acute care center recently completed a white paper with Welch Allyn Connex, a medical technology company, that looked into how much time an automated vital signs monitoring system can save nurses and doctors. The year-long study found the technology can save 76 seconds per patient, while also increasing the accuracy of the data collected.
