Hospital Streamlines ICU Efficiency with Timely Data Integration

MUSE 2015: An Independent User Group Conference for MEDITECH facilities

Case study on EHR - Medical Device Integration

May 21, 2015, 15:00 ET from CapsuleTech, Inc.

ANDOVER, Mass., May 21, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- (MUSE Booth # 1510)

What:  

Automating continuous vital sign data into the Electronic Health Record (EHR) is invaluable in any hospital setting, but particularly for the ICU. Though EHRs are now a requirement and mainstream in healthcare, the integration of data directly to and continuously into the EHR is gaining traction in MEDITECH facilities.




During MUSE 2015 (Medical User Software Exchange), William Holmes, RN, Site Project Manager & Clinical Analyst at McLaren Huron Hospital, Port Huron, Mich., will discuss how they achieved this in their ICU and the resulting benefits during the presentation, "Advanced Medical Device Integration in a Community Hospital: The Mouse that Roared."  In just eight weeks, managed by a small in-house team, the hospital integrated critical care patient monitors and ventilators, relying on Capsule's vendor neutral device integration software running on the *SmartLinx Neuron® 2 mobile clinical computer. Device data is now associated by patient based on admission, discharge, transfer (ADT) messages, and then transmitted directly to the EHR, realizing customized patient-device association.



Why:  

Critical patient data must be accurate and received in the EHR and reviewed in a timely manner to drive the best patient care decisions. With data automatically and continuously being entered into the EHR, patient safety is increased; critical care decisions can be made quickly; and nurses are freed from manually transcribing and inputting vital sign and ventilation information and can focus directly on the patient.
