Quickly change views from single camera to 2×2 to 3×3. Users are able to observe up to nine rooms simultaneously.
Video System for Virtual Patient Observation
In a healthcare facility, not all patients are equal. Some will be easy to work with and cooperate with their doctors and nurses. Others may not be as compliant. When patients like these enter a hospital and require medical treatment, they may require a person to monitor their actions so they don’t hurt themselves or others.
These “at-risk” patients can be determined to require monitoring for multiple reasons including:
- High risk for fall
- History of falls
- History of wandering
- Impulsive or restless behaviors
- Pulling at lines or tubes
In some healthcare facilities, at-risk patients would require an in-person monitor to remain at their bedside to ensure the safety of the patients and others. While this can be essential for patient safety and risk reasons, it could also require many patient monitors and costs can quickly add up. However, nowadays healthcare facilities are moving towards virtual patient observation through the use of HD cameras and microphones.
Easily Observe At-Risk Patients
By using video and a modern video observation platform such as VALT, healthcare facilities can easily and discreetly observe at-risk patients.
VALT is an extremely unobtrusive video installation and patients are hardly aware that they are being observed. VALT uses a central server to process all video content, meaning all that is required in the rooms are our extremely portable and lightweight HD IP cameras, which are paired with high-quality auto-gaining microphones that eliminate hum and background noise.
Our state-of-the-art IP cameras are easy to install and can be both fixed and movable (pan-tilt-zoom – PTZ), and multiple cameras may be placed in each room to provide several different viewing angles.
Patient monitor techs can watch their patients in real-time using nothing more than an internet browser and can also utilize a “talkback” feature which allows real-time communication between monitor techs and at-risk patients. This tool permits monitor techs to observe from a distance yet provide verbal assistance to patients before a nurse or doctor arrives.
Once installed, VALT requires no special expertise to operate.
Increase Video Observation Without Hiring More Staff
In the past, increases in at-risk patients usually would mean hiring and utilizing more in-person monitors. This could cost a lot of time and money for the hiring, training, and salaries of the new staff. However, with video technology, healthcare facilities can now observe multiple patients at once without needing a 1:1 ratio for monitors.
Video technology, such as our VALT platform, allows a single monitor tech to easily watch the actions of up to 9 patients at a single time. This combined with designated “runners” allows health facilities to efficiently monitor and care for more at-risk patients without requiring extra staff.
Security and Patient Privacy Assured
Patient privacy and data security is crucial for healthcare facilities and is also a key component to the design of the VALT platform. Although VALT can be used to record video, it can also be used specifically as an observation tool to ensure sensitive procedures or conversations aren’t being recorded. The VALT platform can also be paired with a privacy switch for complete assurance that others will not be able to observe a private patient-doctor interaction.
VALT utilizes assiduous safeguards to protect video content, including cutting-edge encryption, user permissions, and user authentication. These built-in features can help maintain your facility’s HIPAA/HITECH compliance standards.
IVS can provide a complete turnkey solution that can be implemented by any internal IT department or by a third-party integrator.
