Patient SafetyNet Connects Patients and Caregivers

Masimo Patient SafetyNet is a remote monitoring and clinician notification system which displays near real time information from any connected Masimo device at a central station and allows for alarms and alerts from the bedside devices to be sent directly to clinicians via pager or 3rd party gateway to IP phones.

Select Studies with Patient SafetyNet

In a study published in Anesthesiology, researchers found that Patient SafetyNet helped improve clinical outcomes1

In their initial 11 month evaluation of Patient SafetyNet on a single 36-bed orthopedic postsurgical unit, researchers found a significant reduction in rapid response team activations and unplanned ICU transfers.1

Due to the decreased ICU transfer rate, an annualized total of 135 days in the ICU were saved. Upon expansion of the system to all post-surgical units, a second unit realized a 30% decrease in ICU transfer rate and a corresponding annual total of 168 days in the ICU saved.1

* The calculation of reduced rapid response activations by 65% was based on reduction of rescue events from 3.4 per 1000 discharges to 1.2 per 1000 discharges.

In another article published in the Anesthesia Patient Safety Foundation Newsletter, researchers found that:

Since Patient SafetyNet was instituted on a post-surgical orthopedic unit in 2007, there were no patients that suffered irreversible severe brain damage or death as a result of respiratory depression from opioids over a five year period.2

When analyzing the financial impact of the reduction in ICU transfers and the reduction in ICU length of stay for a patient with transfer, versus the implementation and operating expenses associated with the system, the realized annual opportunity cost savings was $1.48 million on a single post-surgical unit.2

† Since expansion, no patients suffered irreversible, severe brain damage or died as a result of respiratory depression from opioids over a 5-year period.
