Heart disease and stroke are the number one cause of death for Americans today.
Hypertension is a contributing factor to both of these diseases,1 and the impact to patients can be immeasurable. That’s why Midmark designed the only fully integrated point of care ecosystem to help promote a more consistently accurate blood pressure (BP) measurement by targeting 3 key areas using 3 key products.
1. Proper Patient Positioning
Many providers have not received retraining based on current AMA-guidelines for obtaining more accurate BP measurements.2 The Midmark 626 Barrier-Free® Examination Chair with Patient Support Rails+ helps promote AMA-recommended patient positioning for BP capture.2 The barrier-free low chair height allows most patients to place their feet flat on the floor while the rails support the arm at heart height.
2. Accurate, Consistent BP Capture
Standardization across a network of sites can be challenging and can leave health systems at serious risk if not addressed. Using an automated vital signs device at the point of care can help improve standardization, minimizing human variables while maximizing consistency and data accuracy.
3. EMR Connectivity
Seamless connectivity from the automated vital signs device to the EMR saves time and eliminates data transcription errors.
Better BP measurements are made possible by standardizing processes, using proper patient positioning and streamlining data entry. The Midmark 626 Barrier-Free® Examination Chair is the industry’s only exam chair to help facilitate a better BP measurement.
