In today’s complex healthcare environment, there has been a rising demand for clinicians in the recent times. Continuous measurement of patient parameters such as heart rate and rhythm, respiratory rate, blood pressure, blood-oxygen saturation, and many other parameters havebecome a common feature of the care of critically ill patients.
Patient Monitoring systems that are designed to help clinicians make informed decisions, reduce variation in care delivery and lower costsare added advantages in reducing the complexities.
When accurate and immediate decision-making is crucial for effective patient care, electronic monitors frequently, these devices can collect and display physiological datausing non-invasive sensors from less seriously ill patients in a hospital’s medical-surgical units to detect unexpected life-threatening conditions or to record routine but required data efficiently.

The company also aims to support the customers in the pursuit of precision health with healthcare that is integrated, highly personalized to each patient’s needs and that reduces waste and inefficiency.
The company’s innovative medical technologies, digital infrastructure, data analytics and decision support tools help healthcare professionals across the globe to diagnose, treat and monitor their patients. GE Healthcare enables clinicians to make faster, more informed decisions through intelligent devices, data analytics, and services, supported by its Edison intelligence platform.“The increased use of data analytics and machine learning, combined with connected devices and genomics, is ushering in a new era with the potential for real breakthroughs in patient outcomes and operational efficiencies,” explains Kieran Murphy, President and CEO.
Informed decisions start with accurate data that physicians can depend on. This is where GE healthcare’s patient monitoring solutions stand out from the crowd. GE Healthcare’s patient monitoring solutions are specially crafted by technology experts to deliver the right insights that medical practitioners need to better identify, anticipate, and treat patient needs across the continuum of care. Driven by the need to deliver critical information when and where they need it, GE Healthcare’s patient monitoring solutions encompass groundbreaking innovations with world-class service and support, advanced technologies that enable the latest care delivery models—and so much more.
GE Healthcare offers a comprehensive line of patient monitors for virtually every care setting with smart features that are in step with the right needs of clinicians—accuracy, streamlined workflow, cost efficient healthcare and improved patient care. GE monitors helps connect to precise, relevant clinical data whenever required, while making the most of the clinician’s or patient’s existing equipment investments.
Powerful and Simplified Patient Monitoring
GE Healthcare is uniting clinical intelligence in innovative ways to enable clinicians to make timely decisions at virtually every point of care. This kind of an approach enables them to bring together relevant patient information, and present it in the context of the workflow. Whether at the central station, at the bedside, on a mobile device or from home computer, GE care ports are convergence points that provide the right and precise clinical information to help deliver quality patient care at any point of time.
One of the most innovative patient monitoring solution from GE Health is their CARESCAPE ONE Monitor. The CARESCAPE ONE monitor helps make patient transport nearly effortless. The device consists of a large screen that highlights a slim, lightweight unit that travels on a simple bed mount. Parameters are easily added through miniaturized plug-and-play micro-modules.
The solution designed with world-class GE Healthcare algorithms can provide accuracy, precision,and specificity in collecting patient data.The CARESCAPE ONE monitor adapts to changing care environments with the simple connection of a parameter micro-module. Smart medical USB architecture enables dynamic parameter recognition to instantly adapt to patient acuities and care area needs. The CARESCAPE ONE monitor allows to quickly and easily choose the exact vital sign measurements each patient needs. Eight identical medical USB ports receive plug-and-play parameter micro-modules. Plug any CARESCAPE PARAMETER micro-module into any port—the monitor recognizes them automatically.
The solutions elegantly simple and quick transport workflow lets medical practitioners focus on the patient and not on the device. Simply undock the CARESCAPE ONE from the CARESCAPE bedside monitor, then at the destination, dock the CARESCAPE ONE into the bedside monitor. With intelligent design, alarming is uninterrupted; data continuity is preserved throughout and sent to the EMR, thus enabling a seamless patient care facility.
GE Healthcare’s true device standardization on a single monitor platform streamlines asset management and optimizes total cost of ownership. One transport monitor accommodates patients across multiple care areas. Moreover, instead of multiple devices that drive up costs and complicate service and clinical workflow, there is only a single monitor to procure, manage, and service. Compatible with CARESCAPE bedside monitors, CARESCAPE Central Station, and the CARESCAPE Network protects almost every clinical investments while enabling flawless upgrades that limit future capital costs.
Smart and miniaturized technology secures easy integration of today’s and tomorrow’s clinical advancements. The CARESCAPE ONE monitor meets your current needs and positions you for the future. By digitizing the signal acquisition closer to the patient, this innovative design with open architecture leaves wide space for technology advances. Acquiring new measurements will be as simple as adding more plug-and-play parameter micro-modules.
