Evaluation: Extension Engage Ancillary Alarm Notification System
December 22, 2016 | Evaluations & Guidance
The Extension Engage solution is an excellent choice for most facilities considering an enterprise ancillary alarm notification system. The system has the ability to combine data from multiple measurements and assessments to create "smart" workflows and ensure response to actionable events while reducing alarm fatigue. It also facilitates collaboration and communication between multiple caregivers to ensure timely, appropriate response to every alert. Furthermore, it allows contextual information such as current limits, real-time waveforms, and other monitored parameters to be displayed along with the alert message, ensuring that clinicians get a more complete picture of the patient's current status. The system also includes a number of minor advantages, including the ability to allow users to proactively measure and track system performance using tools to trigger simulated messages.
The Extension Engage is designed to alert appropriate clinical staff to the relevant clinical alarms via mobile communication devices in a timely manner.
