Patient SafetyNet

Masimo - Patient SafetyNet Monitoring System

Patient SafetyNet Supplemental Remote Monitoring and Clinician Notification System

Patient SafetyNet is a supplemental remote monitoring and clinician notification system which displays near real-time information from any connected Masimo or third-party device at a central station and allows alarms and alerts from bedside devices to be sent directly to clinicians.

Bedside Device Connectivity

According to the Anaesthesia Patient Safety Foundation (APSF), post-operative patients should have oxygenation monitored by continuous pulse oximetry.1 Using industry-leading Masimo SET® pulse oximetry and upgradeable Pulse CO-Oximetry measurements, Masimo bedside devices provide noninvasive and continuous monitoring of oxygen saturation, pulse rate, respiration rate, total haemoglobin, and other clinically-valuable measurements.

Customisable Central View Station

Patient SafetyNet allows clinicians to monitor up to 200 patients from a central view station. The configurable display allows clinicians to view the status of up to 40 patients at a glance, as well as investigate alarms and dive deeper into trend data.

Automatic data transfer from medical devices to the electronic medical record (EMR) may improve productivity and reduce the likelihood of transcription errors.2 Patient SafetyNet provides clinicians with a solution to automate the transmission and subsequent recording of key data from connected Masimo and third-party devices to the EMR, helping clinicians spend less time recording information and more time caring for patients.

To simplify documentation during rounds, clinicians can take vital signs measurements on Root with integrated noninvasive blood pressure and temperature and manually enter additional patient data, such as level of consciousness, pain scale, and urine output, then verify and push the data directly from Root to Patient SafetyNet and the EMR.

Improving Outcomes on the General Ward with Patient SafetyNet

Improving Outcomes on the General Ward with Patient SafetyNet


In a landmark study published in Anesthesiology in 2010, researchers found that continuously monitoring adult patients on a post-surgical floor at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center using Patient SafetyNet with Masimo bedside devices resulted in a 65% reduction of rapid response team activations and a 48% reduction in transfers back to the ICU.3 Following the initial implementation and positive results in one post-surgical ward, Patient SafetyNet with Masimo bedside devices was expanded to cover more than 200 inpatient beds in all medical and surgical units.

In subsequent articles published in the Anesthesia Patient Safety Foundation Newsletter in 2012 and The Joint Commission Journal on Quality and Patient Safety in 2016, researchers reported that Patient SafetyNet enabled the facility, over a five-year period, to achieve their goal of zero preventable deaths or brain damage due to opioids,4 and over a ten-year period, maintain a 50% reduction in unplanned transfers and 60% reduction in rescue events, despite increases in patient acuity and occupancy.5

Masimo - Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center saved $1.48 million annually

As a result of the Patient SafetyNet implementation, Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center saved $1.48 million annually,4 showing that implementing Masimo SET® and Patient SafetyNet to more safely monitor post-surgical patients can also have a significant impact on a hospital’s bottom line by increasing ICU bed availability and reducing the costs associated with emergency rescue events.

The Value of Patient SafetyNet

Continuous Patient Surveillance Monitoring

Nancy Karon, BSN, RN, ONC at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center in New Hampshire discusses how Patient SafetyNet helps save lives at one of the nation's leading hospitals, as part of their 2011 Nursing Annual Report (published May 2012).
