Take Control of Your Medical Device Data
Once incoming data has been captured and normalized, hospitals can adapt the data to the needs of the receiving system(s) for clinical documentation, alarm management, clinical research, and more. SmartLinx MDISTM provides powerful data configuration options:
Integrates data at the needed pace. For example, SmartLinx can send heart rates every minute to the EMR while sending heart rate alarms immediately to both the EMR and the alarm management system.
Allows the selection of all, or only the parameters needed for the receiving system(s). Data that is unnecessary to the receiving system can be filtered out prior to sending it. In some instances, data outputted from medical devices in stand-by mode can be filtered out.
Receiving systems often require data to be received in a specific format, such as a specific parameter label, unit, or code. SmartLinx can be configured to transform the data to receiving systems’ requirements. For example, 1-2-3 can become low-mid-high.
Receiving systems can require additional context to accompany the data such as location or patient ID. Most medical devices have no contextual awareness and cannot provide this data directly. SmartLinx leverages all available context sources (e.g. settings from the devices, user inputs, and other system interfaces such as ADT) to append the outbound message with the necessary context.
Simultaneous tailored integration
SmartLinx is capable of tailoring collected medical device data to not just one, but to several downstream systems simultaneously while respecting their unique data requirements. With this Multi-Feed capability, hospitals can empower many consumers of medical device data.
