Remote patient observation is a technology-enabled solution that connects at-risk patients to remote observers over video. Mobile carts equipped with cameras are left with at-risk patients. An observer at a command center can observe multiple patients at one time via a video connection and can contact both the patient and onsite medical staff as necessary. Utilizing one patient observer for several patients serves to stretch staff resources without sacrificing patient safety. It also helps patient observers to avoid infectious disease, since they are no longer required to be in the room with the patients they are observing.

MedSitter is a remote patient observation solution that puts one observer in front of up to ten patients at one time. Both the MedSitter hardware and software were designed for clinicians and include some innovative features that are not seen anywhere else in the market. These features truly set the MedSitter solution apart:

  • Instantaneous communication between patients and sitters via two-way audio and video
    With MedSitter, the video connection between the sitter and the patient is always on. With just one click, sitters can appear on video in the patient's room - no calling required! Persistent video closely mimics the immediacy of in-person communication. The quick connection is vital in emergencies and helps sitters to establish strong relationships with patients.
  • End-to-end clinical and technical support
    From the first sales call all the way through account maturity, we proactively monitor our product and continually make improvements to meet your needs. We make dozens of software updates yearly without any application downtime. Plus, hardware and software questions route to our helpdesk, not yours.
  • Proactive design
    Safety observers are supported with motion detection technology, full-field night vision that moves with the sitter-controlled camera, and escalating communication methods. This way, observers may be truly proactive in preventing patient injury rather than reactive to a witnessed patient injury. With this system, one observer can truly be in ten places at once.
  • Easily accessible data
    Secure information from the MedSitter platform can be funneled into your EMR. Hospital staff can also pull their own reports on sitter hours, incident prevention, and cost savings. Reports can be generated on-demand or can be requested from your MedSitter quality manager.
  • Full communication support
    Your pre-exiting nurse calling system can be integrated into the MedSitter Software so that contacting floor staff is as easy as pressing a button. In addition, the software supports cross-language communication in dozens of world languages, including American Sign Language. Text-to-voice is also supported in world languages for custom messages.
  • Easy implementation
    Installation is quick and easy. MedSitter carts are pre-assembled and configured to your Wi-Fi network before they are even shipped to your facility, so all you have to do is turn it on. Plus, we offer a 30-day no-risk proving period. Within that proving period, the hospital is not obligated to pay a cent.
