CléMetric to Reveal Real-Time IQ-Alarms for Patient Safety at the IBM Watson Research Center

Gergens Polynice IBM Partnership

CléMetric, a provider of advanced data analytics software for healthcare, announced today it will reveal IQ-Alarms at the IBM T. J. Watson Research Center in New York on November 4th, 2014. The new health data analytics software addresses nuisance bedside alarms, to meet the Joint Commission 2016 National Patient Safety Goal (NPSG), by enabling physicians to set clinically appropriate parameters, limits and thresholds according to patient-level data via dashboards.

The main purpose of clinical alarm systems are to alert caregivers of a specific patient state that could lead to complications. However, when they are not properly managed, they can compromise patient safety. The release of the CléMetric IQ-Alarms is ahead of the compliance date of January 2016 to give healthcare organizations the opportunity to plan in advance and to incorporate real-time alarm management into their policies and procedures. The application also supports clinicians in efficiently monitoring patients either at bedside or remotely.

IQ-Alarms integrates with IBM InfoSphere Streams and BigInsight to bring Big Data and mobile solutions to healthcare operations and medical research.
