How do you document telemetry in a paperless system?

Nurses General Nursing


The medical center where I currently work is very focused on going paperless, and has made many advances toward a truly paperless system. However, one of the things we still document on paper is telemetry strips. What process, systems or equipment are other organizations using to document telemetry interpretation in a paperless manner?

Thank you.

The Excel Medical system records all alarm histories which can be printed. The mVisum system takes it one step further and allows the user to actually see how the alarm was handled (i.e., when it was generated, when it was acknowledged, if it was escalated to another nurse or nurses because the primary recipent didn't respond, etc.) All of this data can be downloaded into a variety of formats (such as a Microsoft Excel sheet) for printing. Of course it is also stored electronically for retrieval at any point in time.
