Contactless patient monitoring and digital rounding designed for behavioral health

Oxevision offers a comprehensive suite of modules designed to cater specifically to the requirements of behavioral health inpatient settings. Among its innovative solutions are a unique digital rounding tool and an FDA cleared medical device that enables staff to measure pulse rate and breathing rate (chest wall movement) without any physical contact.

With Oxevision's suite of modules, healthcare staff can monitor patients more effectively, respond promptly to their needs, and provide care with heightened safety measures. By leveraging the capabilities of these innovative medical devices and monitoring solutions, Oxevision empowers healthcare providers to deliver high-quality and safer patient care in behavioral health inpatient settings.
Oxevision includes a suite of modules designed for inpatient behavioral health:

Contact-free vital signs1

Cleared as a Class II medical device by the FDA
Oxevision's FDA cleared medical device sets a new standard for medical monitoring in behavioral health settings. By allowing staff to measure pulse rate and breathing rate (chest wall movement) without the need for physical contact, this cutting-edge medical device enhances patient comfort and safety. The device provides accurate and reliable measurements, aiding healthcare professionals in promptly detecting any irregularities or changes in vital signs.
Spot-check measurements for private and semi-private rooms:
  • Medical-grade pulse rate and breathing rate measurements, as accurate as contact devices:
    - Pulse rate: ± 3 beats per minute
    - Breathing rate (chest wall movements): ± 2 breaths per minute
  • Brief live 15-second vision into the room so staff can:
    - Verify patient safety at night (just as per protocol during a Q15 safety check)
    - Confirm that vital signs are being taken for the correct patient
    Note: No clear video is recorded to protect patients’ privacy and dignity
  • Regular usage reports provided to clinical management for compliance monitoring

Sleep monitoring1

Cleared as a Class II medical device by the FDA
Oxevision uses pulse and breathing rate measurements and activity data to assess patients’ sleep/wake patterns, with a level of accuracy superior to wearables and comparable to the gold-standard (polysomnography). Staff can view automated, objective sleep reports for patients in private and semi-private rooms to support clinical decision-making.

Oxevision Observations1

This digital rounding tool simplifies the procedure for patient care, certifying compliance and recording patient location and behavior, while also guaranteeing adherence to scheduled observations. It validates and documents checks every 15 minutes, creating an audit trail. This tool enhances the ability of healthcare personnel to carry out rounds and assessments in a methodical fashion, guaranteeing prompt and thorough attention to patients' requirements.

Q15 safety checks are necessary to ensure patient safety but are time consuming, prone to human error and non-compliance, and often disrupt patients’ sleep and privacy at night.

Oxevision Observations replaces paper and clipboard documentation and can be accessed 24/7 via portable devices or a fixed screen in the nursing station. It is so much more than just a rounding tool because it enables staff to:
  • Take therapeutically valuable night-time observations with FDA cleared contact-free vital sign measurements1 that do not disturb patients’ sleep
  • Reduce the time it takes for them to complete observation rounds with its intuitive workflow
  • Improve compliance with a suite of weekly facility observation compliance reports, and real-time on-unit compliance reports.

Activity alerts and reports1

Note: Today these are available for private rooms only. However, development is in progress to make these available in semi-private rooms.

A lot can happen in between safety checks, particularly at night. Oxevision provides information and notifications to clinical staff about a patients' location in their room.

The location information and notifications consist of general room states (e.g. “In Bed”, “In Room”, “Empty”) and alerts and warnings that can be configured to support an individual unit’s clinical needs:
  • “Edge of Bed” and “Out of Bed” alerts
  • “In Bathroom/Blind spot” warnings and alerts
  • “At Door” warnings and alerts
  • “Room Entry” warnings
  • “Out of Room” alerts.
Staff can also gain additional insights with Activity Reports. These reports enable staff to review night-time and day-time location patterns.

Recent Incident Review1

Incident reporting is time consuming and there may be a lack of reliable evidence, particularly when an incident occurs in a patient’s room.

Recent Incident Review enables authorized staff to access blurred video when there has been an unwitnessed incident in a patient’s room. This:
  • Helps staff to provide timely assessments of incidents and determine the most appropriate care response (for example, has a patient hit their head during a fall and do they require a visit to the ER?)
  • Enables staff to document an accurate and objective narrative when an incident occurs in a patient’s room including vital signs and trends data.

Seclusion Session Report1

Obtaining physical health observations while a patient is in seclusion or restraint is needed but can be challenging and put the patient and staff member at risk.

Oxevision’s Seclusion Session Report can be used for a seclusion session or restraint. It enables staff to gain insights including:
  • Vital signs information including vital signs observations and trends
  • A patient’s activity levels and a “No Activity” alert if no activity is detected within an occupied room for a prolonged time
  • Location insights, including an “In Bathroom” status (if applicable)
  • Emergency treatment order administration and timings (optional).
Not CCTV, not telesitter
Staff can only see a clear, time-limited video into the room when taking vital sign spot check measurements with the FDA cleared medical device. This is so clinical staff can confirm that vital signs are being taken for the correct patient and that the patient is still. The video automatically times out after 15 seconds.
Blurred video for incident reviews and alerts
In the event of a serious incident, authorized staff can access blurred video footage to support the investigation.

In the event of an alert, staff are also presented with the opportunity to view a blurred time-limited view into the room.
No clear video recording
No clear video data is stored.
Adherence to strict privacy standards
Providers implementing Oxevision define the patient consenting model. In the UK, the National Mental Health and Learning Disabilities Nursing Directors Forum created guidance on the use of vision-based patient monitoring technology in behavioral health care including two informed consent regimes.
No wearables
No need for a wearable device. Wearable devices can pose safety risks and be poorly tolerated by patients, reducing therapeutic engagement.
No Audio
There is no microphone. Oxevision can not pick up any sound.

1 The Oxevision housing unit contains an infrared-sensitive camera that relays information to designated fixed screens, tablets and/or mobile devices on a unit.  It is a fixed-installed solution within hospitals, general care, and secured environments where a framework exists that mandates periodic checks by a trained professional to ensure subject safety. Oxevision is intended for use by appropriately trained staff with a duty of care, and should not be used by untrained users. The Vital Signs software is cleared by the FDA as a Class II medical device in the US. It is intended for non-invasive spot measurement of pulse rate and estimated breathing rate (chest wall movements) when the subject is still. Vital Signs is indicated for use on humans 18 years of age or older who do not require critical care or continuous monitoring. The device is not intended to be the sole method of checking the physical health of a subject. Federal law (U.S.) restricts this device to sale by or on the order of a licensed healthcare practitioner. The Activity Tracker software (including the activity detection, fall risk, location risk, inactivity warning, flexi room, refresh room, activity report and recent incident review products) are Clinical Decision Support System (CDSS) products suitable for use within single occupancy rooms. They are not medical devices. Oxevision Observations and the Seclusion Session/Reports product are Electronic Medical/Health Record products that are designed to assist reporting activities and are not part of any medical device. See Instructions for Use for intended use, contraindications, warnings, cautions, usage directions and maintenance.
