Trillium implements clinical monitoring system

TORONTO – Trillium Health Centre recently transformed their 763 bed, two-site hospital with ConnexALL technology. The system enhances communication between Philips devices (including patient monitors and telemetry packs) and Cisco Voice-Over IP (VoIP) wireless phones, making it easier for clinical staff to monitor patients at Trillium’s Queensway West location.

ConnexALL ensures instant notification by integrating communication tools - Trillium staff know immediately when patients’ vital signs require closer monitoring, or when the system becomes inoperable due to technical error.

The Philips/Cisco integration enhances communication in Trillium’s new seven-storey, 136 bed West Wing, along with an integration between a Rauland-Borg Responder IV nurse call system and Cisco VOIP wireless phones. The West Wing project follows a Rauland/Cisco pilot implementation in 2008.

David Tavares, CEO of GlobeStar Systems, explains what this means for other hospitals: “We’ve provided hundreds of hospitals that use Philips patient monitoring a way to ensure that critical notifications are getting to the people that need them. This makes the lives of staff easier and gives patients an added level of comfort, knowing that clinical staff have immediate access to the information they need.”

Used in numerous healthcare organizations, ConnexALL enables instant communication among mobile staff and patients. With ConnexALL’s versatile integration options, detailed reporting capabilities, and easy-to-use interface, end-users achieve immediate improvements:

• Reduce operating costs by integrating existing technology in one common platform

• Streamline communications and improve workflow, resulting in better clinician response time and increased staff and process efficiencies

• Increase workplace satisfaction and staff retention

• Improve patient care and safety

• Reduce patient delays
