Alarm Navigator Solutions
Excel’s Alarm Navigator™ is a data acquisition software platform that captures alarm data from patient monitoring networks. When more than 90% of alarms are false positives, this web-based alarm analytics tool gives hospital patient safety and alarm fatigue committees a data-driven approach for better understanding and managing alarm fatigue. With hospitals working to address Joint Commissions National Patient Safety Goal on Alarm Management, Alarm Navigator is a groundbreaking tool.
Alarm Navigator acquires clinical alarms from GE Healthcare and Philips Healthcare patient monitoring systems, as well as ancillary medical devices such as ventilators. By including all corresponding waveforms, Alarm Navigator provides a more accurate context for better analysis and differentiation between false-positives and actionable alarms. It allows customized report building and clinical alarm analysis for the entire hospital enterprise.
EMR Alarm Integration: Traditionally, telemetry shift reports (or cardiac strip reports) has been a series of manual, time-consuming tasks requiring clinicians to process information by printing, scanning and hand-delivering documents throughout the hospital. Excel automates this process and adds unique functionality that allows central monitor technicians to send alarm strips with waveforms and vitals from GE Healthcare Carescape/Unity patient monitors, Philips Healthcare Intellivue patient monitors and ventilators to the EMR and handheld devices simultaneously. Excel specializes in integration to major EMR companies, including Epic, Cerner, Allscripts, MEDITECH, and McKesson.
