Alarm differentiation for reducing alarm fatigue
Through the “smart” link, IQ Messenger Medical receives an alarm notification from a medical device. This notification also displays the specific alarm details. This is called a differentiated alarm. This way you know exactly what the alarm is about, the priority level and the actions to take. Differentiated alarms is therefore a necessary part of reducing alarm fatigue.
Healthcare organisations can now decide independently which alarms they find important and who should receive them, on a device of their choice, of course.
This makes it easy to distinguish between medical and technical alarms and to filter alarms based on their priority level. It offers full chain monitoring, informing you when a medical device is connected or disconnected or no longer works properly.
Apart from the differentiated alarm notifications, IQ Messenger Medical adds several powerful functionalities. For example, alarm notifications are no longer transferred endlessly once the nurse has adjusted the monitor, alarm notifications can be combined to prevent false alarms and alarm fatigue. You can also view live monitor values on the SmartApp, view camera images and set up speak-listen connections.
