Provider of transformational medical technologies and services GE Healthcare announced on Monday that the University of Colorado Hospital (UCH) has installed the new CARESCAPE Monitor B850 in its 50-bed Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) and Neonatal OR.

GE's CARESCAPE Monitor B850 is the company's latest advance in bedside patient monitoring designed to help enhance clinical decision making in the NICU.

The CARESCAPE Monitor B850 deployment by UCH enables access to critical patient information from any bedside monitor anywhere in the unit. Financial details of the deployment were not available.

In addition, UCH has leveraged the CARESCAPE Monitor B850 care area-specific monitoring features for more accurate NICU clinical measurements and to help support its goal of aggressively addressing common premature infant complications.

Also, in addition to supporting caregivers, the CARESCAPE Monitor B850 helps keep parents informed of their baby's overall condition. The monitors can help parents watch their baby's clinical status, while the infant remains in an enclosed environment, shielded from disruptive lights and sounds, GE said.

Additionally, UCH is the first hospital to leverage InSite, a GE Healthcare remote diagnostic and repair service, with the CARESCAPE Monitor B850. As a result, bedside monitors can maintain themselves through a remote serviceability feature, which enables remote diagnostics and predictive maintenance. This may help prevent system downtime and reduce overall servicing needs. Also, the remote service feature supports seamless upgrades, making the monitors easier to keep current.

GE Healthcare is a business division of General Electric Company (NYSE:GE).
