Extending Care benefits patients, especially those in rural areas without easy access to hospital, those with chronic conditions who need monitoring and coordinated Care and those with disabilities For whom trip to hospital or rehabilitation facility may be unnecessary. In some areas, emergency room visits have decreased by 42 percentage year over in large part due to concerns about COVID-19. 1 But avoiding hospital does not have to avoiding Care. Telehealth can proactively monitor and step in to provide timely intervention for those at risk and can do so in high-quality, cost-effective way, which can result in substantial cost savings. Currently, many systems struggle to serve aging, chronic and rural patients who may not have convenient access to hospitals. For example, 5 million Veterans live in areas designated as rural by US Census Bureau during 2011-2015 period, 4 and as that population continues to age, prevalence of chronic conditions like hypertension and diabetes is projected to rise by 12 percentage and 8 percentage , respectively. 5 Difficulty in accessing care is exacerbated during pandemics, when reduced rates of admission for heart attacks, strokes and emergencies suggest that patients are avoiding necessary care out of fear of going to hospital. 6 by making Care flexible and untethering patients from centralized locations and striving to provide Care nearly anywhere, we can improve continuity of Care health system provide. Care can be delivered in lower-cost and lower-risk settings and health systems can improve consistency of care, focus on preventative care to keep patients healthier outside hospital and, in event, patients must move between care settings, ensure that they are better served throughout their journey. Demand for extended Care is expected to keep growing, driven by concerns about COVID-19, aging population and rise in chronic conditions that are rapidly transforming preferences about how and Care should be deliver. Virtual or telehealth visits can solve many of these challenges, and its use has massively accelerated in wake of COVID-19. Consumer adoption in US has skyrocketed from 11 percentage of consumers in 2019 to 46 percentage today. 7 telehealth solutions extend Care to home, allowing for remote screening and triage and helping to proactively manage patients in lower-cost settings. Additionally, this technology conserves equipment and hospital space for patients who need IT, limiting risk of exposure for hospital-base Care teams, limiting potential patient exposure by allowing them to receive Care from safety of their home and reducing overall cost of Care, particularly for chronic populations-in some cases, improving costs by 2 percentage to 3 percentage . 7 Recently, VA and Philips joined forces to expand VA tele-critical Care program, up to 100 million investment that could have tremendous impact on improving Veterans health. 12 Care can also be extended with patient management solutions that guide, track and triage through multiple digital channels.

Introduction

One hundred and thirty-seven anesthesia professionals participated in study. For qualitative part, we evaluate responses given by 120 individual anesthesia experts. Twenty-five participants take part in second quantitative part. Eight participants who participate in interviews also participate in follow-up study, resulting in crossing-over between participants and field survey participants of 6 percentage . Samples in both study steps gender-, profession-, and experience balance. Table 1 outlines study and characteristics in full detail. As we conducted this study at University Hospital Zurich, all participants indicated to possess experience with patient monitors of manufacturer Drager, which were in use at University Hospital Zurich at time of study. Additionally, about one of two participants had previous experience with monitors of Philips Healthcare, and about one six had previous experience with monitors of GE. Word count reveals that participants most frequently use following words: alarm = 52, cable = 24, heavy = 20, alarm limits = 19, artifacts = 15, ECG = 15, non-intuitive = 6. Figure 1 shows tag cloud created from words people use in their answers. Base on word count and additional inductive, ie, free coding, we identify following six main topics with sub themes: 1. Alarms with sub themes alarm setup, false alarms, alarm fatigue, and default settings, 2. Artifacts, 3. Software with sub themes presentation, interface design, and intuitiveness, 4. Hardware with cables, size / weight, display, components, 5. Human factors with sub human performance and familiarization effects, and 6. System factors sub themes lack standardization and work environment. We describe all major topics and sub themes with participant percentages, and examples in Table 2 and present coding tree in Fig. 2. 1. Alarms alarms were common common problems. Twenty-two interviewees mention alarm and alarm configuration as problematic. Other themes include lack of standardization in alarm management, alarm settings, eg, requirement for different alarm thresholds for different phases of care or different patients. False alarms were as problematic by 18 participants. Participants criticize false positive alarms, ie, when all is OK, and too frequently reoccurring alarms. Twelve participants specifically used term alarm fatigue and mentioned danger of desensitization, which may cause critical patient status to go unnoticed. Participants talk about sound characteristics of audio alarms and problem of discerning which of two or more alerts is more important. 2. Artifacts artifacts were mentioned as problematic 16 anesthesiologists. Participants mention interactions in measurement as electrocautery and ECG or oxygen saturation probe and patient movement, and problems of distinguishing artifacts from real problems. One participant suggested that, similar to alarm fatigue, artifacts can lead to ignoring of this sensor and, thereby, losing it for informed decision making.
