Video highlights the importance of medical device integration in a hospital setting and uncovers the myths associated with the use of hardware
ANDOVER, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Capsule Tech, Inc., the leading provider of medical device connectivity, today announced the launch of its second video in the Connected Consultants video series, “Hardware.”
WHAT: The Connected Consultants series was created to educate clinicians and IT staff within hospitals and healthcare organizations on the important role that medical device integration (MDI) plays in improving healthcare IT. The series began with Manual Charting, an entertaining look at how device integration solves manual charting challenges that nurses and clinicians face when manually documenting patient vitals. However, as hospitals seek to address the issue of manual charting through the use of MDI, there are important details that can have a major impact on the success of the implementation, like hardware. The second video will uncover the myths associated with the use of hardware in conjunction with MDI and outline specific questions hospitals should ask their provider when implementing.
WHEN: The second video is available today, April 25, 2012.
