Chicago-based Hillrom’s monitoring device ensures caregiver access to data-driven information with the Welch Allyn 4400 all-in-one vital signs platform that includes a patient app and clinician review portal, according to a news release.
The Welch Allyn Spot Vital Signs 4400 device takes vital signs, including temperature, Sp02, blood pressure and pulse, then connects to the Hillrom Connex app to relay patient data securely through the phone at the push of a button. Clinicians are also able to log into the portal to review data and make care decisions.
Hillrom’s Welch Allyn Spot Vital Signs 4400 and the related Connex app and Connex portal are now commercially available in the U.S.
“With this technology, recovering and at-risk patients, including those with COVID-19, can feel confident, safe and comfortable at home, while enabling medical staff access to critical information they need to quickly and accurately assess their patients’ changing health status from a distance,” Hillrom President and CEO John Groetelaars said in the release. “Sending a patient home with the Spot Vital Signs 4400 device can help reduce hospital patient load, risk of exposure and the utilization of critical protective gear.”
