Colorado-based Denver Health, a comprehensive, integrated healthcare organization that serves more than a quarter of the city’s population, has successfully implemented a comprehensive device integration and connectivity program by Bernoulli, a healthcare technology firm based in Milford, CT.
Using its Nuvon VEGA architecture, Bernoulli established medical device connectivity in the key departments at the hospital, including OR, areas that use anesthesia, like labor and delivery, and critical care areas, including the ICU, neonatal ICU and the pediatric ICU — totaling more than 200 patient beds.
Six devices types were integrated with VEGA, including ventilators, physiological monitors and anesthesia machines.
Achieving medical device connectivity is a major initiative for many hospitals and health systems seeking to improve patient care and foster real-time clinical decision-making. For clinicians to make the best patient care decisions, hospitals must ensure that their clinical decision systems contain meaningful and accurate data from the myriad of devices that monitor and provide therapy to patients.
In addition to having ready access to this real-time, synchronized patient data, clinicians must also be able to access this information at all times and at any location.
The VEGA platform offers a single system management controller that does not require expensive add-ons, plug-and-play connectivity, the high-level patient data security and privacy, and integrated clinical mobility.
