5 solutions to reduce alarm fatigue
1. Alarm filtering
By filtering alarms you can significantly reduce the amount of notifications. The IQ Messenger platform has extensive filter functions whereby the healthcare organization can determine which alarms they want to receive. Of course, this filtering can be adjusted per device or department, giving a central role to the work process.
2. Combining alarms
Alarms can also be combined, reducing the number of false alarms. This means that repeated alarms are clustered together into one alarm notification.
3. Apply alarm differentiation
Prioritize the alarms so that the alarm with the highest priority is at the top of the list and further differentiate the alarm message using colors, sounds and icons. All this is possible with the SmartApp. With this functionality, the nurse can determine how to respond with one look at the smartphone.
