GE Healthcare Granted FDA Approval for Portrait VSM, Expanding Its Portfolio of Connected Patient Monitoring Solutions

Tuesday, April 30, 2024

GE HealthCare has recently announced the FDA's clearance for its Portrait VSM vital signs monitor, representing a significant step forward in patient care.

This new device, succeeding the DINAMAP legacy, utilizes the SuperSTAT non-invasive blood pressure algorithm for precise measurement readings, aiding clinicians in making timely decisions.

The Portrait VSM brings innovation with its wireless connectivity and seamless integration into electronic medical records (EMR), tailored to user workflows. It introduces customized Early Warning Scores (EWS) and automates routine tasks, allowing care teams to concentrate on patient care.

Expanding the family of Portrait monitoring solutions, the Portrait VSM seamlessly integrates with the latest Portrait Mobile wireless and wearable continuous monitoring system, ensuring patient mobility. By scanning the barcode, the VSM imports patient demographic data and continuous vital sign readings from Portrait Mobile, streamlining clinical rounds and charting processes.

Connected workflow enhances accuracy in vital sign documentation, eliminating delays associated with manual data entry. Continuous monitoring facilitated by Portrait Mobile enables early detection of patient deterioration, facilitating timely interventions and potentially preventing adverse outcomes, particularly post-surgery.

Traditional spot-check methods, typically conducted every 4-6 hours, may miss early signs of deterioration, contributing to preventable consequences. Portrait VSM bridges this gap by combining spot check capability with continuous monitoring, optimizing patient care.

Emphasizes the focus on addressing healthcare challenges and enhancing efficiency through innovative monitoring technology. Portrait VSM, an integral part of the Portrait Ecosystem, ensures reliable clinical performance, enabling care teams to allocate more time to patient care.

In response to challenges highlighted in GE HealthCare's Reimagining Better Health study, Portrait VSM offers workflow efficiencies and customizable EWS protocols to aid in early deterioration recognition and intervention. The Round Advisor feature simplifies rounding processes, facilitating timely measurements and prioritization of care tasks for multiple patients.
