In most hospitals and many other patient care settings, medical device data is manually entered into an electronic medical record (“EMR”) by clinicians—a time-consuming task that takes them away from the bedside and often leads to transcription errors. This manually-entered data is often hours old by the time it is keyed in and accessible by providers. Delayed data entry coupled with error-prone manual transcription may lead to hospital overstays, costly medical errors, provider dissatisfaction, and suboptimal patient care. What’s worse, fragmentation within medical device and connectivity vendors magnifies the glaring connectivity gap between devices, data, and the patient’s medical record resulting in very few solutions that are truly vendor-agnostic.
Dramatically improves clinician productivity while reducing error-prone, manual transcription.
NantHealth’s solution to this all-too-common problem begins with DeviceConX. DeviceConX is an extremely flexible Class I software-based offering that facilitates the capture of patient data from nearly any medical device and delivery of that data to an EMR or any other data repository—quickly and accurately. Leveraging a combination of existing hardware investments—bedside PCs, laptops, tablets and workstations-on-wheels—as well as NantHealth’s HBox hardware, there are now multiple options for bringing both legacy and new devices online without having to rip-and-replace costly hardware.
Accelerates rounding performance by streamlining data validation and providing a touch-based interface to collect custom parameters
Building upon the implementation of DeviceConX’s reliable and near -real-time data delivery, NantHealth’s VitalsConX automates the entire vitals collection workflows to make heavy rounding loads more manageable. As medical devices are moved bedside-to-bedside to capture vital signs (e.g., respiratory rate), clinical validation of that data can occur in near real-time at the point of care. Clinicians no longer have to validate captured device data at a workstation and, what’s more, they now have the ability to electronically collect observable patient data not associated with medical devices such as pain scale scores, custom data elements, and patient assessments. Using tablet devices that are readily available to clinicians, VitalsConX provides a mobile view into data collected by DeviceConX, making workflows faster and easier with maximum automation and no manual transcription.
