Birmingham firm’s software aid doctors keep track of patients’ vital signs

From the

Doctors in the emergency department, operating room and intensive care unit have multiple patients at once and often feel the need to be in multiple places at the same time.

Now technology can help doctors do just that.

Well, almost.

Birmingham-based Acuitec is marketing software called Vigilance, which runs on an iPhone and can track patients’ vital signs, send distinctive message alerts when patients get into distress and provide live video and sound from an operating or patient room.

Developed by Vanderbilt Medical Center doctors, the Vigilance system was first conceived for anesthesiologists, who can have up to four patients at once.
