The Challenge

The hospital wanted to install video cameras in each room so that paramedics remotely monitoring patient vitals could also visually see if the child was in distress and call for immediate medical attention.

About The Customer

Nemours Children’s is one of the largest integrated pediatric health systems in the country. Everything we do — our medical care, research, education, and prevention and advocacy efforts — is focused on kids.

The Customer

Nemours Children’s Hospital

The Solution

Nemours created a Tactical Logistics Center (TLC) – also known as the Clinical Logistics Center – where a rotating team of paramedics continually checks patient vital signs through a central monitoring system.

In addition to the clinical data, the TLC integrates live streaming video from Axis network cameras in each patient’s room through Epic software.

Operational Impact
  • [Management Effectiveness - Real Time Information]

    Designed with wide dynamic range for great forensic detail in both bright and poor light conditions, the Axis cameras help paramedics detect small changes in a patient’s health, sometimes even before vital signs indicate that there is a problem.

  • [Efficiency Improvement - Issue Response]

    With the addition of Axis cameras in every patient room tied into the monitoring system, paramedics would serve as additional eyes and ears for the nurses, doctors and parents.

Quantitative Benefit
  • Paramedics at the TLC use the Axis cameras to monitor over 100 in-patients in the hospital’s Orlando location as well as over 150 beds in its sister hospital, Nemours/ Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children, in Wilmington, Delaware.
