Connex Spot Monitor Single Sign-on

Protecting Patient Privacy, Data Integrity and Nurses’ Time

Your clinicians need fast access to patient vitals. But hospitals must secure medical devices to protect patient privacy, data integrity and compliance.

That’s why the Welch Allyn Connex family of vital signs devices feature secure access with Imprivata®.


For Office-Based Settings

Importance of BP Averaging

A firsthand observational study by a leading cardiologist revealed that more than half of patients could be misdiagnosed in a hypertensive category using the single reading method.

Averaging multiple blood pressure readings helps to provide a more precise measurement that can take into account the following anomolies: 

  • white coat hypertension
  • talking or active listening
  • distended bladder
  • cuff over clothing
  • smoking within 30 minutes of measurement
  • unsupported arm
  • measurement while standing


For Hospital Settings

Connex Custom Scoring App

Capture a custom patient score at the bedside—right from your Connex Spot Monitor. The Connex Scoring App provides an optional point-of-care calculator that is customized to your facility’s protocols. With the Connex Scoring App, clinicians can document and track signs of patient deterioration and make informed patient care decisions quickly.

Support your facility’s early warning score protocol:

  • Create your own custom calculations or match national standards
  • Automate calculations, such as scores, falls assessments or other data captured at the bedside
  • Capture additional data needed, such as intakes, outputs or patient consciousness levels
  • Customize your messages based on calculations

Connex with Electronic Vitals Documentation



Connex with Electronic Vitals Documentation - Patient vitals are sent directly from the bedside to the electronic medical record (EMR), giving clinicians immediate access to accurate patient vitals information to make informed patient care decisions, while also helping to reduce transcription errors and the time spent manually entering patient vitals.

Connecting Vital Signs Devices to the EMR

Going One Step Further for Patients and Nurses: Eliminating Manual Vital Signs Documentation to Prioritize Value-Added Care

Understanding the value of nursing efficiency, a large hospital wanted to examine the effects of eliminating manual vital signs documentation in its medical/surgical units. The hospital measured vitals capture and documentation times before and after connecting their Connex® Vital Signs Monitors to the hospital’s EMR. During the study, this hospital wanted to explore the impact of connected devices on nurses' time and value-added care.

Wireless EMR Connectivity

Improved data accuracy, efficiency and mobility.

  • Wireless transfer of vital signs to the patient chart eliminates data entry errors.
  • Elimination of typing into patient records helps to increase staff efficiency.
  • Freedom from wires and cables provides the flexibility to easily work in a limited space.
Special Information for U.S. Customers Only
The FDA issued Enforcement Policy for Non-Invasive Remote Monitoring Devices Used to Support Patient Monitoring During the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) Public Health Emergency. During this emergency and while the policy is in effect, FDA does not intend to object to limited modifications to the FDA-cleared indications without prior submission of a 510(K) where the modification does not create an undue risk. Hillrom does not yet have FDA 510(k) clearance on the combination use of the Connex Spot Monitor with Masimo RRp. Hillrom intends to adhere to FDA’s recommendations to market CSM with Masimo RRp with appropriate testing and labeling while the policy is in effect.
This device is intended to provide recommendations that should be used in an adjunctive (supportive) manner and are not intended to be used as a primary means to make diagnosis, prevention, or treatment recommendations.
Modifications to FDA Cleared Indications for Use (modifications are underlined)
The Connex Spot Monitors are intended to be used by clinicians and medically qualified personnel for monitoring of noninvasive blood pressure, pulse rate, noninvasive functional oxygen saturation of arteriolar hemoglobin (SpO2), and body temperature in normal and axillary modes of neonatal, pediatric, and adult patients. Monitoring Respiration Rate from photophlethysmogram (RRp) is indicated for adult and pediatric patients greater than 2 years old.
The most likely locations for patients to be monitored are general medical or surgical floors and general hospital and alternate care environments. The product is available for sale only upon the order of a physician or licensed health care professional.
Device Performance
Validation of the integration of Masimo RRp technology into the CSM device was completed through software verification testing and design validation of the RRp parameter in the device user interface and IFU. The CSM device has been tested and shown to comply with IEC 60601-1 Edition 3.1 and IEC 60601-1-2 4th Edition. A Risk assessment has been performed according to ISO 14971. Any identified hazards have been found to be acceptable.
