Welch Allyn has partnered with wireless data management specialists Sensitron (San Mateo, California) and its exclusive distributors in Europe, UK and the Middle East, in a bid to enhance the handling of medical data. The alliance aims to ensure that data from Welch Allyn's key vital signs monitors and spot-checking devices is recorded, either wirelessly or otherwise, with the Sensitron's careTrends digital clipboard technology and automatically sent to an electronic medical record, thus helping to reduce transcription errors, and minimise the time lag between the capture and posting of data. According to Sensitron, nurses can save between 35-40 minutes per shift with the use of the careTrends technology.
