First-of-its-kind connected solution allows capture and viewing of
weight and height measurements and automated data transfer to EMRs
The two devices communicate wirelessly through a seca adapter that plugs into the Welch Allyn Connex VSM. They can be up to 98 feet apart, depending upon office configuration, and still communicate, which will help increase workflow by reducing the need to move equipment from room to room. Automating the interface between the respective devices can also help eliminate documentation errors by reducing the need for manual parameter recording, while also increasing the speed of recording weight and height into electronic medical records (EMR).
“In order to improve patient outcomes, healthcare providers need access to accurate patient data from the initial point of care,” said
Under the agreement, seca scales and measuring devices with the seca 360° system include digital column scales, measuring stations, pediatric scales, multifunctional wheelchair scales, bariatric scales, chair scales and seca’s newest device – the seca mBCA (medical Body Composition Analyzer). Each device is designed to accommodate every kind of patient need quickly and accurately in a physician or hospital setting.
“Doctor visits in any setting tend to start with the measurement of vital signs—blood pressure, temperature, and, of course, weight and height—all essential information to provide proper care and treatment to the patient,” said
The seca 360° wireless scales and measuring devices are available in countries where the Welch Allyn Connex VSM is sold. For more information, visit www.welchallyn.com or www.seca.com.
