Description: The AvaSys TeleSitter System is a remote patient observation system that enables audio and visual monitoring of patients at risk for falling. Healthcare providers can monitor patients from a centralized workstation using one-way video and two-way audio from the patient room using movable/portable or permanent AvaSys room unit hardware. Generally, patients are candidates for telesitting if they have dementia or a history of falls and medical safety restraints, are a risk of running away, are being taken off drugs or alcohol, are on a ventilator, or are potentially aggressive or violent.

This application uses a built-in MongoDB database to store data created by the client application via the patient notes or the admission wizards. This database resides on the AvaSure server and not on the VA network. All data are encrypted with symmetric Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) 256-bit unit. Domain users will authenticate via a thick client monitoring application or Hypertext Markup Language 5 (HTML5) webserver using Hospital Active Directory (AD) and Global Domain Security groups. The data export application is in Comma-Separated Values (CSV) format.

There is no specific webpage for this technology, thus the vendor`s website is used in its place.
