Portrait Mobile - A wearable continuous monitoring solution that provides a real-time personalized view of the patient

  • Help improving outcomes: Continuous monitoring of key vital signs, SpO2, PR and RR, helps clinicians in their goal to improve outcomes


  • Quality data and alarms: Continuous trending and actionable alarms to help clinicians


  • Promotes early recovery: Wireless monitoring enables ambulation that supports early recovery protocols and may reduce recovery times1


  • Reliable and robust: Wireless technology designed to be as reliable as wired

Where patients go, Portrait™ Mobile follows.

Portrait Mobile is a wearable continuous monitoring solution that provides a real-time personalized view of your patient. It encourages patient mobility while monitoring dual vector RR, SpO2 and PR continuously. Flow of data is uninterrupted and provides continuous trending and actionable alarms, which may help clinicians detect deterioration as it is happening so that they can intervene proactively.


Reimagining patient mobility and wireless monitoring

Adverse events in general wards are not uncommon. Vital signs are often abnormal hours before an event, but may go unnoticed as spot-checks are only done every few hours2. Utilizing Portrait Mobile in wards may help clinicians intervene proactively.

GET PATIENTS AMBULATORY. Helps promote early recovery protocols

By eliminating bedside tethering and by visualizing data wirelessly, nurses can still monitor patients while the patient ambulates. Patient ambulation may reduce recovery times and prevent costly complications related to immobility1.

NO WIRES TO TETHER. Goes wherever your patients go

Eliminating the wires enables patients to have the freedom to move about the hospital. It also means that visitors can interact with the patient without technology getting in the way. And for family members it is peace of mind knowing that monitoring is constant – anywhere the patient is.

TRUSIGNAL™ RRDV TECHNOLOGY. Accurate respiration rate tracking

Portrait Mobile reimagines respiration rate (RR) measurements entirely through an innovative dual vector wireless sensor, which leverages an advanced algorithm providing real-time, motion-tolerant measurement and trends. By optimized electrode placement, clinicans can reliably monitor diverse patient types, regardless of their particular breathing pattern or body type.3

CONTINUOUS MONITORING. Real-time data to react to

By providing a continuous picture of a patient’s status, Portrait Mobile allows caregivers to see when respiration rate, SpO2, and pulse rate change even slightly. This gives clinicians the opportunity to act early and potentially avert serious adverse events such as cardiorespiratory complications or infectious disease.

INTERVENE EARLY. Actionable alarms

Portrait Mobile is designed for the wards so the alarm strategy is different than for other patient populations. Limits and delays are easily set to your clinical preferences, allowing you to be alerted to the patient status based on your view of when it is significant and sustained, thereby requiring an immediate response. Alarms can be configured to alert at the Portrait Central Viewer, enabling a silent recovery experience for the patient.

Complete vital signs, simple workflow.

For a more complete, simple patient record, GE HealthCare’s family of Portrait monitoring solutions enable you to capture additional vital signs from the patient, like blood pressure and temperature, using the Portrait VSM vital signs monitor, efficiently and accurately. With a single click of the barcode scanner on the Portrait Mobile Patient Monitor, admit the patient to the Portrait VSM monitor, and your patient’s PR, RR and SpO2 appear on the screen.

Once the additional vitals are taken, send the patient data to the EMR.

This unique solution helps improve workflow and avoid transcription errors, thus enabling better patient experience and safety5.

POWERED BY EDISON™ The future is built in

Built on GE Healthcare’s Edison HealthLink platform, an advanced edge-compute platform, Portrait Mobile is designed to evolve. Meaning, you can start wireless monitoring patients with Portrait Mobile today and expand the platform as your monitoring needs evolve in the years to come.

Listen to how GE HealthCare engineers designed the future of patient monitoring:

Easy deployment. Seamless workflows.

A routable communications architecture lets hospitals leverage their existing network infrastructure, reducing installation and maintenance costs. And by adopting IHE/HL7® standards, Portrait Mobile can also integrate with EMR systems, enabling seamless ADT workflows—like admitting and discharging patients, clinical documentation, and interfacing with third-party platforms.
