ANDOVER, Mass., Aug. 26, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --

What:   CapsuleTech announces the launch of its Convergence and Collaboration podcast series. Within healthcare, the convergence of technology and the integration of data from multiple systems and sources have become critical components to enabling collaboration among clinicians for the advancement of patient care.  Data integration – the true transference of data among clinical and operational systems to be mined, analyzed, and utilized promotes the kind of collaboration and communication that is the foundation for delivering high-quality, safe and cost-effective patient care across a healthcare delivery system.  The first two of four podcasts have been released.  Additional podcasts will be released over the next few weeks.

In these initial installments of Convergence and Collaboration, each podcast tackles a different data-driven issue – alarm integration, patient surveillance, asset management and clinical workflow – that can be solved by connecting, managing and distributing defined medical device data to target systems and applications for improved decision making. This first series of podcasts are the result of Capsule's HIMSS Experience Center, an open forum discussion with healthcare leaders with the goal of creating honest and useful dialogue about everyday clinical challenges that can be solved by tapping into the depth of medical device data—90% of it that is underutilized or never used at all. The series includes the following speakers and topics:

President, Connexall

Why:   Driving better patient care, nursing efficiencies, and improved operational and clinical outcomes start with health system CIOs, IT directors and medical informaticists having timely, accurate data. By accessing the previously untapped wellspring of medical device data, health system leaders can realize immediate insights to help improve alarm management, identify deteriorating patient conditions, locate critical device inventory and more.

How:   Introduced late last year, SmartLinx MDIS® is a major evolution of Capsule's medical device integration technology and a first to the industry. The solution was created to provide an integrated data management system that not only captures and manages all the data from over 730 medical devices, but also delivers critical clinical and operational data to downstream systems and applications where and when it's needed.

When:  Now available online –
