Medical Device Integration
E.Novation’s Strategic Partnership with Capsule, the leading provider of vendor neutral medical device connectivity is designed to support improved patient safety by providing nurses with solutions that help increase direct patient care time and reduce charting errors.
Nursing staff are constantly challenged with trying to balance the time they spend on direct patient care, assessment and surveillance with maintaining and updating clinical documentation. In the ICU the challenge is even greater because patients are more critical, require more surveillance and are connected to more medical devices that require more frequent documentation. Med-surg is equally challenging because there are more patients to care for and therefore just as many vital signs to collect. Manual transcription and entry into the Electronic Patient Record is simply not the best use of nursing time.
Medical device connectivity improves workflow because data from connected devices is automatically sent to the hospital’s clinical system of choice. Device connectivity simply allows nurses to focus on what they do best – care for their patients. It also:
- Increases staff productivity
- Reduces charting errors
- Increases adoption of the EPR
- Provides real time data to the patients record for improved decision making
- Helps qualify for meaningful use criteria and
- Improves overall patient care and safety
