About the Study
Patient satisfaction is an important indicator used to assess patient outcomes, patient retention, and reimbursement claims. Wired vital-sign monitoring equipment limit patient mobility and have a direct impact on the patient’s overall hospital experience. Wireless continuous monitoring of a patient’s vitals through the Vios Monitoring System (VMS, Vios Medical, St. Paul, MN, USA) provides a light, flexible way to deploy continuous wireless monitoring in hospitals. This study aims to assess the patient satisfaction and preference of the VMS.
