Patient Video Surveillance System Provides High-Definition Real-Time Imaging at the Bedside
SafetyNet Surveillance is a video surveillance system that provides real-time video images of a patient's room, including the patient with connected monitoring devices, to a central station. Masimo SafetyNet Surveillance is a software option for Masimo's Patient SafetyNet system, adding existing communication technology to central monitoring.
The camera delivers a high-resolution, high-frame rate video feed to the Patient SafetyNet view-station. An external mechanical lens cap lets patients or their visitors disable the camera at any time. Two-way audio is available to allow the caregiver to listen and communicate with the patient. The system utilizes the existing hospital IT network and can provide viewing of images in the same care area.
"Video surveillance that is not cost prohibitive adds an exciting new dimension to hospital healthcare systems," said Joe Kiani, Founder and CEO of Masimo. "SafetyNet Surveillance combines innovations we take for granted in our everyday lives—real-time video and two-way audio communication—with top-tier noninvasive medical technology to deliver a holistic system cost effectively. We hope this enhancement to Patient SafetyNet will improve the quality and safety of patient care and help reduce costs."
