The PeriCALM® Plus™ suite is the only fetal surveillance system available today that provides automated visual cues that enable clinicians to easily and quickly spot clinically significant trends. This feature, known as PeriGen Visual Cueing™, provides an instant view of mothers' and babies' current status and trends over time, helping clinicians to avoid errors, increase patient safety and reduce risk. Importantly, Visual Cueing in PeriCALM Plus is supplemented by real-time, advanced decision-making support based on expert analysis and established labor and delivery protocols.
"Nurses are a driving force behind patient safety initiatives, so we could not be more pleased to be introducing PeriCALM Plus to the AWHONN conference attendees first-hand," said Matt Sappern, CEO of PeriGen. "Our goal is to support their efforts to improve perinatal outcomes for mothers and babies by creating innovative, intuitive technologies that directly impact the quality of care."
All of PeriGen's fetal monitoring systems include patented, pattern-recognition software, which offers an objective interpretation of fetal heart rate tracings that is comparable to the analyses of recognized clinical experts. PeriCALM Plus couples PeriGen's traditional fetal monitoring suite (PeriCALM) with comprehensive nursing and physician documentation, as well as protocol-driven decision support.
