App Created at Vanderbilt Takes Vigilance to Another Level

A mobile device application created by the Vanderbilt University Medical Center (VUMC) Department of Anesthesiology allows anesthesiologists and other clinicians to monitor patients, check vital signs, communicate with other providers and literally peer into operating rooms during surgeries. All of this is available from the convenience of a cell phone.
VigiVUTM, created initially for the iPhone by the VUMC Department of Anesthesiology, expanded on an in-house desktop program called VigilanceTM to make the technology more portable and efficient. It keeps the clinician “in touch” when care locations are multiple and separate, with the ability to monitor up to four patients simultaneously.
