In addition to quick intervention, the Continuous Patient Observation application addresses a wide range of health provider needs. Whether within a standard hospital room or a remote location, this capability provides a critical advantage in balancing staff to patient ratios.

The iObserver App is one of the critical components of this solution, enabling continuous patient observation via the patient’s Wall-Mounted Video or Mobile Cart system. This virtual sitter capability allows the clinician to keep careful tabs on up to twelve patients at once.

The ability to closely oversee multiple patients and raise an alert if needed protects patients from potential self-harm and longer hospital stays.
