What happens when a resident’s measurements are out of range?
CareConnection supports a broad range of alarms and alerts that trigger immediate notification of any breached threshold directly on the Vitals CareCart tablet during vitals capture and to decision makers via pop-up application on medcart laptop and/or nursing desktop and, if desired, via email. Thresholds can be set individually for each resident, or your team can use the global ranges embedded in CareConnection. In addition, the alerts can be configured to show patterns – for example, a high diastolic reading 3 days in a row or a weight change of more than 5 pounds within 2 days. If your EHR system allows you to set ranges, the CareConnection measurements will trigger the notifications through your EHR as if a caregiver had manually entered the information.
