Momentum at South Bay for Rehabilitation and Nursing Earns Industry Quality Award
Use of vital signs monitoring technology drives recognition from McKnight’s Excellence in Technology Awards for skilled nursing providers
Momentum captured the award for its use of the Vios Monitoring System with Remote Monitoring Services. The technology enables around-the-clock vital signs monitoring of post-acute cardiopulmonary residents. This real-time view into the resident’s condition allows the facility to treat residents more proactively and prevent hospitalizations with greater success.
“We’re always trying to find new technology that elevates our standard of care and provides residents with the highest quality rehabilitation experience,” said
Since implementing the system, Momentum has raised their standard of care through:
- Avoiding hospital readmission for several residents because the care team was alerted early to changes in health
- Seamless monitoring of resident vital signs, even during rehabilitation sessions, to proactively adjust treatment as needed
- Using vital signs data to better understand the incremental health changes in a resident, which can impact care coordination and discharge
The Vios Monitoring System is a wireless, FDA-cleared patient monitoring platform designed to improve resident safety and outcomes through continuous vital signs monitoring. The platform’s Remote Monitoring Services offers 24/7/365 monitoring and alerts to support staff as they work to manage medical care and reduce rehospitalizations.
