We did evaluate other products, but we chose iSirona because of its unique ability to associate devices directly to the patient—not the room

iSirona®, a provider of simplified solutions for medical device integration, today announced go-live status at Cooper University Hospital in Mt. Laurel, New Jersey. With over 700 physicians in over 75 specialties, Cooper is a leading provider of health services, medical education and clinical research.
iSirona provides a software-based solution that enables hospitals to integrate patient data from virtually any medical device into the electronic medical record. Cooper is leveraging iSirona’s technology to transmit patient data in the ICU, with future plans to collect data from ventilators and IV pumps.
According to Emma Brandon, Cooper’s director of clinical information systems, iSirona was an obvious choice. “We did evaluate other products, but we chose iSirona because of its unique ability to associate devices directly to the patient—not the room,” she says. “This functionality was critical to us, as it helps ensure that data is being tied to the correct patient record.”
With phase one complete, Brandon cites a smooth implementation as being key to their success. She explains, “Because iSirona was able to integrate so tightly with our Epic system, our clinicians needed almost no training. The system is very intuitive and our staff couldn’t be more pleased.”
“We applaud Cooper’s commitment to device integration,” says Peter Witonsky, iSirona’s president and chief sales officer, “and we are very pleased that we were able to get them up and running so quickly. We look forward to extending Cooper’s integration—and its benefits—very soon.”
An upcoming webinar entitled, “A Hospital Case Study: A BIG Medical Device Integration Project in a Small Amount of Time” will elaborate on the Cooper story. It will take place at 12:00 EST on June 30, 2010. To register, go to https://www2.gotomeeting.com/register/257597954.
