Series to provide a tangible way for hospitals to view device integration
ANDOVER, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Capsule Tech, Inc., the leading provider of medical device connectivity, today announced “Connected Consultants”, a new video series created to educate clinicians and IT staff within hospitals and healthcare organizations on the important role that medical device integration plays in improving healthcare IT. Launching April 10, 2012, the video series will begin by addressing the issues and benefits around topics such as Manual Charting, Hardware, Workflow, and the Enterprise.
Medical device integration is a top priority for hospitals across the globe because of the benefits it brings to clinicians, IT personnel, biomeds and executives in the hospital setting. Capsule’s new video series addresses the challenges hospitals face in connection with their current processes and illustrates how device integration can enhance the efficiency of clinicians while improving patient care and decision-making.
The series will begin with “Manual Charting”, an entertaining look at how device integration solves manual charting issues. Manual charting has long been a process that slows the efficiency of nurses and other clinicians. Video hosts will show step-by-step how device integration automates the charting process and improves the accuracy and availability of critical patient information.
As the series unfolds, video hosts will also uncover the myths associated with the use of hardware in conjunction with medical device integration and show why clinician workflow should focus on the patient, not devices. Lastly, they address having an “enterprise vision” when implementing device integration to improve scalability and positively impact patient care across the entire hospital enterprise.
“Capsule is committed to continually educating executives in hospitals and healthcare organizations on solutions that address the most challenging healthcare IT issues,” said Stuart Long, North American President of Capsule. “The Connected Consultants video series is a creative approach coupled with insightful explanation on the value of medical device integration as the road map for healthcare IT reform unfolds.”
Three subsequent videos will be announced in the coming weeks and additional videos will be released throughout 2012.
