Cairns Hospital sending early warnings to ieMR through device integration

Cairns Hospital has begun transferring paediatric patients' vital signs wirelessly into the state's Cerner integrated electronic medical record (ieMR) using vital signs monitors customised with Queensland's paediatric early warning algorithm.

Called the iVitals system, the hospital is the first in the state to go live with Queensland's Clinical Excellence Division’s Children’s Early Warning Tool (CEWT) built into the Welch Allyn devices.
