Compact Hardware to Support the Continuum of Care

NantHealth’s Sentry is a next-generation, hospital-grade medical device gateway unifying all care setting. Designed to work with DCX to filter data from device to server, Sentry’s compact size enables it to support a range of acute and non-acute care settings—from the hospital to outpatient clinics, doctors’ offices, and even patient homes.

Revolutionizing Device Connectivity Freedom

The durable, medical-grade, fanless PC moves up-to-date data to the EMR or other repository, connecting devices to a central source of patient information that spans the continuum of care. Sentry supports device connectivity in locations where there may not already be a computer or workstation-on-wheels available, allowing for several device connections at a time. And its versatile new design can be used mobile for up to 120 minutes, or easily mounted to a wall. Once you choose Connected Care, NantHealth’s team walks you step-by-step through the implementation process to get your organization up to speed.

Sentry Features

The Sentry is the future of NantHealth’s revolutionary HBox, and it contains matchless enhancements and new features to streamline your workflows and power device freedom.

Stream high-quality data

Sentry supports multiple device connectivity options, including Bluetooth, USB, and serial-to-USB cable. All of these options enable healthcare providers to connect devices from different manufacturers and years. In any room, “smart” and non-networked devices can stream high-resolution, high-fidelity medical device data over the same network—exceeding the standards for typical patient care.

Increase flexibility and freedom

The all-new Sentry empowers clinicians more than ever before. With six high-tension USB ports, Sentry gives caregivers more freedom to choose the best—and most necessary—devices for each patient. The hardware has a removable battery that functions up to 120 minutes, letting patients or devices be mobile while capturing data.

Stay alert to device changes

Sentry has an LCD screen and real-time alerts that notify you when the battery is low, a message is received, your network status changes, and more. Sentry devices also support remote over-the-air (OTA) updates from a central server, making software upgrades available almost instantly.

Connect Non-Networked Devices

The Connected Care system is capable of interfacing with nearly any medical device that outputs data. But there are still some devices that don’t pair wirelessly to Connected Care software. For instance, many devices stream serial data via a RS-232 DB9 physical data port.

The NantHealth Shuttle bridges the gap. With it, both networked and non-networked devices connect to a shared, reliable pathway for data transfer. This serial-to-USB interface cable is engineered to meet the demands of a high-acuity setting. Shuttles provide each device with a unique DCX identifier and relay the data to a node—on either a Connected Care Sentry, or a PC hosting the DCX software—for processing.

Transport Data in a Few Easy Steps

With Shuttle, clinicians can connect devices and transfer to the DCX server in fewer steps than ever.

  • Connect Shuttle to a device with a serial port.
  • Connect USB cable end to a NantHealth Sentry or PC running DCX.
  • Pair relevant patient devices by selecting from your EMR or other data repository.
  • Collect, route, filter, and save patient data with the wired connection.
