Implementation to Focus on Connectivity with MEDITECH

ANDOVER, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Capsule Tech, Inc., the leading global provider of medical device connectivity solutions, today announced that Hanover Hospital, Hanover, PA will implement Capsule’s DataCaptor™ medical device integration (MDI) software. The DataCaptor solution will seamlessly connect Hanover’s Critical Care Area (CCA) patient monitors to MEDITECH. A key factor in Hanover’s decision was a match between their mission of providing the highest level of patient care and Capsule’s experience and success working in the MEDITECH environment. With a successful implementation in the CCA, Hanover will next look to integrate medical devices in its emergency department.

Capsule’s MDI solutions enable connectivity between virtually any medical device and virtually any electronic medical record system, allowing hospitals to choose their type and scope of implementation. Capsule’s proprietary DataCaptor™ connectivity software manages the communication between medical devices and their destination clinical information system(s). Deployed through software on a PC, terminal server, Mobile Vitals Plus™ and/or bedside hardware such as the Capsule Neuron™, patient data can be collected continuously in acute care settings, or periodically in lower acuity, multi-patient environments. Implementations range from single department to multi-facilities, and in some cases, even system-wide deployment at hundreds of hospitals in a single network.

“Our ability to connect any devices with any EMR continues to be a crucial decision point for our customers,” said Stuart Long, Capsule Tech’s Chief Marketing and Sales Officer. “To date we have successfully worked with nearly 200 MEDITECH client hospitals and implemented our solutions across all three MEDITECH platforms; Client/Server, MAGIC and 6.0. We look forward to completing this first step with Hanover and moving ahead with them into other areas of their facility.”

About Hanover Hospital

Hanover Hospital began caring for the community in 1926, when philanthropists Harper D. Sheppard and Clinton N. Myers united local residents around the concept of a community hospital. The Hospital structure was described at the opening reception as "a sturdy and beautiful piece of architecture" of Red Colonial brick with Indiana limestone that is "visible as the most outstanding landmark from various approaches to the city."

In 1926, the local newspaper wrote that Hanover Hospital began its history "under the most favorable auspices and with the hearty well-wishes of the entire community, taking its place as an instrument of high service and ever-present help in the crises of existence." Since its incorporation, Hanover Hospital has grown to 106 beds and a network of outpatient sites that continues to serve its original not-for-profit purpose and has continued to embrace its founding principle of providing high quality service.
