NOVA Ranks as a Top 10 Patient Safety Solution

NOVA Enables Patient Safety, Staff Optimization, & Curbing COVID-19

Mount Laurel, NJ NOVA enables patient safety with its rich patient monitoring features developed by Wachter Healthcare Solutions.

Because NOVA (Nursing Observation and Virtual Assistant) provides for constant monitoring of patients in hospitals, Wachter Healthcare Solutions is recognized as a top 10 patient safety solution provider by Healthcare Tech Outlook.

Wachter’s NOVA solutions save costs compared to traditional 1:1 sitter programs while preventing patient falls, and can even mitigate patient anxiety and PPE use during COVID-19 and other infectious disease outbreaks.

With NOVA, a NOVA device in the patient’s room allows a remote observation technician to safely monitor up to 12 patients simultaneously. This observation technician can quickly notify nursing staff when a patient needs immediate attention.The observation technician is able to communicate with the patient in real-time through audio and video communication as well as audio and visual prompts translated into the patient's native language.

When it comes to patient safety, NOVA is the most powerful patient monitoring technology.

How NOVA Enhances Patient Safety

Patient falls in hospitals can become a monumental issue for both patients and hospitals alike. Wachter Healthcare Solutions works with hospitals to understand their patient fall prevention goals, current challenges, and how NOVA helps with patient safety.

NOVA is equipped with an HD camera that is integrated with crucial features such as aggression detection, night vision, and pan, tilt, and zoom capabilities. These functions allow the observation technician to view a patient's status at all times of the day.

How NOVA Helps Healthcare Workers Combat COVID-19

While NOVA is typically used in hospitals for preventing patient falls, it is now being used to monitor and reduce the spread of COVID-19.

Wachter Healthcare Solutions recently demonstrated the NOVA solution at the first ever virtual Nursing Management Congress 2020. There the team introduced the idea of using NOVA to monitor patients recovering from COVID-19, reduce the usage of already limited personal protective equipment (PPE), and curbing the spread of the pandemic.
