Vital Time Savings

Evaluating the Use of an Automated Vital Signs Documentation System on a Medical/Surgical Unit

This study published in the Journal of Healthcare Information Management, a HIMSS publication, compared the accuracy and time efficiency of manual-entry vital signs documentation with workflows that use a data management system to automatically transfer vital signs assessments from a bedside vital signs device into the electronic medical record. The study found that the automated vital signs documentation system was more accurate than manual documentation and errors were reduced by 75 percent. The wireless automated vital signs documentation system saved time compared to manual documentation, and combined vital signs acquisition/documentation times were reduced on average by 96 seconds per reading.
