Nuvon, Inc. announced today that Loma Linda University Medical Center has selected Nuvon, Inc. (), an industry-leading patient care data integration solution, to provide medical device connectivity and interoperability as part of its migration to Epic’s electronic medical records system for three critical service units: the operating room (OR), the intensive care unit (ICU) and the Dialysis Center.

“Nuvon is honored to welcome Loma Linda University Medical Center to our growing group of visionary hospital systems committed to delivering the best possible patient care,” said Cathleen Asch, Nuvon Chief Executive Officer. “Our system delivers complete, rich, accurate real-time patient data to clinicians at any location, at all times, which enables hospitals to provide the highest level of patient care and patient safety available today and to confidently plan for easy, cost-effective connectivity for future growth and expansion.”

In choosing Nuvon for its medical device connectivity needs, Loma Linda University Medical Center joins leading care providers such as NorthShore University HealthSystem, Cleveland Clinic, , , Good Shepherd Medical Center, Temple University Health System, and Denver Health and Hospital Authority, among others, in empowering clinicians to make the best patient care decisions today. With Nuvon, these prestigious medical institutions have ready access to secure, real-time, synchronized patient data.

By adopting Nuvon for OR, ICU and dialysis, Loma Linda is not only solving its clinicians’ need for accurate, real-time data, but it is preparing itself for the future, from meeting all stages of meaningful use compliance to ensuring easy connectivity for expansions such as increasing bed capacity, adding more departments and expanding to other facility locations.

Nuvon is uniquely able to deliver fully integrated clinical mobility and positive patient association with its Nuvon Mobile Device Manager, a hand-held data capture device that enables wireless connectivity for currently unconnected devices and contains a built-in bar code reader that travels with medical devices for streamlined positive patient identification and care delivery.
