PeriWatch® Vigilance™ is a Perinatal Early Warning System that notifies clinicians about patients whose conditions are worsening. Vigilance uses artificial intelligence to continuously analyze maternal vital signs, fetal heart rate, contractions and labor progression. Notification thresholds can be configured by each institution and the actual alerts appear on the department census board.

The use of early warning systems is an emerging standard for labor & delivery.  They are recommended by over 21 professional obstetric associations and societies because their use is associated with substantially improved care and reduced maternal morbidity.

PeriWatch Vigilance’s technology has been associated with improved outcomes: lower unanticipated NICU admissions, fewer newborn resuscitations, and controlled cesarean section rates.  To see research summary and details click here.

Without requiring a hospital to “rip and replace” its current perinatal system, the enterprise-wide PeriWatch Vigilance platform is simple to implement with minimal interfacing to all EMRs including Epic, Cerner®, Meditech and Allscripts®.

No. PeriWatch Vigilance adds powerful early warning capabilities, working alongside your existing fetal surveillance system.  It does not require workflow changes or additional documentation.

PeriWatch Vigilance has been designed as an enterprise-wide solution that’s easy-to-implement and easy-to-use.  In addition to delivering patient notifications to the EMR chalkboard for a quick and easy look at patients across the facility, it acts as a clinical tool at the bedside, nurse’s station or as part of a centralized rapid response center.  PeriWatch Vigilance also provides an enterprise-wide view that can be manned by a single patient safety nurse or other clinician to monitor patients across an entire health system from one screen.

Charge nurses, nurse managers, risk managers, and others can run a variety of reports that the organization’s progress toward quality goals.
