Bedside Clinical Systems (BCS)

Bedside Clinical Systems (BCS) facilitates the deployment of innovations in healthcare supporting clinicians in providing safer and more effective care. BCS was formed out of a partnership between The Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids) and TIAP (then MaRS Innovation) with a focus on translating and deploying best practices developed out of decades of research at SickKids and The University of Toronto.

BCS’ products begin at the bedside to make care easier for healthcare professionals  to provide and result in better outcomes for patients. BCS creates workflow-integrated clinical decision-support systems, grounded by scientific evidence. BedsidePEWS™, BCS’ lead product, is a validated system to preivent near and actual cardiopulmonary arrest in children. The FDA-approved solution provides clinicians with timely information about the severity of illness for children being monitored in hospitals.
