With growing importance on improving patient outcomes, everything counts. See what Midmark is doing to help.

Blood Pressure (BP) measurement is captured in nearly every patient encounter and is an important factor in point of care diagnosis, patient risk stratification and medication dosing. Slight variations in technique and measurement can have a big impact.

Only Midmark can offer a fully integrated point of care workflow designed to promote proper patient positioning for a more accurate BP measurement with the ability to port data directly into the EMR, eliminating transcription errors. Watch the video to learn more.

 

As health systems struggle to standardize care, BP inaccuracy is one of the biggest areas of concern.

Many healthcare providers still may not be following AHA recommendations for more accurate blood pressure measurement.4 If this isn’t addressed, it leaves health systems at serious risk.
