Snoqualmie, Wash. – As part of an ongoing commitment to patient safety, Albany Med, the only academic medical center serving 25 counties in Northeastern New York and Western New England, recently selected Spacelabs Healthcare to upgrade its physiologic monitoring and telemetry systems. Additionally, the health system also chose to include Spacelabs’ tools to further complement their drive towards data management and reporting to improve patient experience and outcomes.
With this project, Albany Med also completed a house-wide upgrade to the latest line of patient monitors. Xprezzon®, Qube® and Qube Mini bedside and transport patient monitors, Xhibit® central stations, and Spacelabs’ latest telemetry technology will allow caregivers to be able to access critical patient data through the hospital’s monitors, PCs, and mobile devices. Albany Med can now broaden its focus on workflow improvements, patient throughput, and the patient experience using Spacelabs’ SafeNSound™ tools for comprehensive reporting, device management, and communications automation.
“We are excited to partner with one of the Northeast’s premier health systems to help them achieve the best clinical outcomes for their patients today while helping them build a platform ready to harness tomorrow’s technology,” said Spacelabs Healthcare President Shalabh Chandra.
