Software, Video System, Patient Monitoring
Definition : Video system software designed to operate video systems used for remote observation of patients in healthcare facilities and control/monitor a limited number of video systems' functions. This software is usually intended to work only with one or a few models of patient video systems, typically supplied by the same manufacturer. The software may perform a variety of algorithms to facilitate the analysis of images obtained in patient rooms and also facilitates the sending/receiving of patient data from and to information systems. Patient monitoring video system software is usually not available separate from the video system but may be updated (i.e., through the release of modified versions) during the lifetime of the system. Dedicated patient video system software is intended mainly to facilitate the observation of patients from a remote station (e.g., a nurse station).
