GE Healthcare, in conjunction with Medhold, has reportedly introduced an advanced lightweight plug-and-play monitoring solution, named CARESCAPE ONE, for conducting intra-hospital patient transport in South Africa. With this solution, nurses can visually monitor critical patient conditions with precision throughout active patient transport between care areas. The newly launched solution is a portable monitor device with docking capability on the transport bed or at the bedside.
CARESCAPE ONE is designed to offer a competent workflow with the further benefit of availability to new with existing users. It also provides a standardized yet fully flexible platform with a single device and software to support cost-effective fleet management. The CARESCAPE parameter concept is one of the unique features that contribute to the ease of use and flexibility of application across the healthcare organization. With CARESPACE parameters, CARESCAPE ONE suitable to the patient means that only one standard CARESCAPE ONE device is required and the parameter set is tailored by simply connecting the required parameters. General Manager GE Healthcare Southern Africa Graham Maritz said that “Our mission at GE Healthcare is to save lives in moments that matter – CARESCAPE ONE is a good demonstration of this mission. We are proud to partner with Medhold to make a lasting impact in intra-hospital transport across South Africa’s healthcare facilities.”
These days, intra-hospital patient transport that is an intricate and highly susceptible process has become a significant part of healthcare delivery and requires adherence to high quality and safety standards. It’s also a time-consuming task for nurses who work in critical care areas and often resulting in numerous tasks for nurses with higher physical and psychological requirements.
