EMH Healthcare Selects Capsule's Mobile Vitals Plus
Feb 22, 2013 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) --
Capsule Tech, Inc., a provider of medical device connectivity solutions, announced that EMH Healthcare, Elyria, Ohio has gone live on Mobile Vitals Plus in its medical surgery unit.
In a release, the Company noted that MVP is the portable version of Capsule's Neuron touch-screen platform that enables a nurse to use one device to collect and send validated vital signs from any spot check monitor at the point of care.
The EMH activation of Capsule's MVP solution represents the first use of MVP to integrate medical devices with Siemens Soarian enterprise healthcare information technology solutions.
"We had been searching for a solution that could enable us to move data directly from spot check monitors to the patient record in real time -- without paper, without transcription and without typing," said Charlotte Wray, Vice President, Clinical Operations and Information Systems of EMH Healthcare. "Our nurses and patient care technicians began using the units immediately, and they started requesting the ability to monitor additional variables beyond vital signs. Our clinical users are excited about the potential of this implementation and the impact it has on patient safety and quality of care, and we have plans to deploy across the entire hospital in 2013."
At the core of Capsule's connectivity solution is DataCaptor. DataCaptor manages the communication between medical devices and destination clinical information system(s). Data can be collected continuously in higher acuity care environments, or periodically in lower acuity areas. DataCaptor software is deployed through software on a PC, terminal server and/or bedside hardware such as the Capsule Neuron.
EMH Healthcare is a 387-licensed bed hospital system with main campuses in Elyria, Amherst and Avon; along with medical offices in Sheffield Village, Grafton, North Ridgeville, North Olmsted, and Westlake.
Capsule is a provider of medical device connectivity solutions for hospitals and healthcare organizations.
