“VSTAlert is a real game changer in fall reduction. Our results using this technology have been truly remarkable. VirtuSense has been a true partner and shares our passion to address this significant issue for our residents.”

Alerts, Straight to Your Device
VSTAlert uses Artificial Intelligence and Machine Vision to identify someone's intent to get out of a bed or chair 30-65 seconds before they actually do.
When a patient attempts a bed exit, the automated alert workflow notifies the assigned nurses and techs as well as the floor’s central console, all within one second. If there is no response to the alert, a contingency protocol escalates the alert to the rest of the team on that floor.
VSTAlert allows you to provide the best care for your residents with fewer staff while remaining 100% HIPAA-Compliant. The sensors detect movements and anomalies based on thousands of hours of normative data to alert health providers before an issue arises or worsens.
98% Detection Accuracy Before a Bed Exit
For standard bed alarm devices, detection accuracy can be as low as 15%. Not only do these frequent false alarms disturb nurses and staff, but it can also add stress to patients. VSTAlert sends real-time alerts to nurses and staff within a second of a bed exit with 98% accuracy.
Every day nurses and techs encounter 20–30 false alarms per bed. VSTAlert allows them to focus their time and energy on the alerts that matter, without being distracted by false alarms.
Simple Floor Management
The VSTAlert Console allows you to manage your entire floor from a single screen. You can assign rooms to nurses and staff, track shifts, onboard patients, and view the status of each room in real-time.
“The cost savings of one major injury results in significant cost savings to the resident and organization, so VSTAlert more than pays for itself. It is a great selling feature to offer our community partners and families.”
Dawn Tatko | Director of Nursing at Friendship Village of South Hills, a Lifespace Community, Upper St. Clair, PA
“Working with VirtuSense has made a real difference for our residents. VSTAlert has both been a benefit in our day-to-day operations, and an important step in creating an even better future for the industry.”
Rodney McBride | Vice President Health Services at John Knox Village, Lee’s Summit, MO
“UMC is thrilled with the results we have seen to date from VSTAlert … [It] greatly improves resident safety and quality of life and gives our associates the ability to spend more time on resident care.”
