It is especially rewarding to have been selected by a hospital known for its leadership in healthcare technology
Panama City, FL (PRWEB) June 08, 2011
iSirona®, a provider of simplified solutions for medical device integration, today announced that Central DuPage Hospital (CDH) has signed a license agreement to implement iSirona’s device connectivity solution. Located in the western suburbs of Chicago, CDH is a 313-bed facility named to Thomson Reuters 100 Top Hospitals list for five consecutive years based on its demonstration that high-quality patient outcomes can be achieved while improving efficiency.
iSirona provides a software-based solution that enables hospitals to integrate patient data from virtually any medical device into the electronic medical record. CDH will be leveraging that technology to deliver patient data from a variety of devices into its Epic CIS.
iSirona’s flexible approach to achieving connectivity made them an obvious choice, according to Chief Information Officer David Printz. “As we looked at competitive options, it became clear that iSirona’s approach would afford us more options around leveraging the hardware and systems we already use. This flexibility, coupled with iSirona’s proven track record with other Epic hospitals, contributed greatly to our decision.”
“It is especially rewarding to have been selected by a hospital known for its leadership in healthcare technology,” adds Peter Witonsky, president of iSirona. “Device integration will help them continue their commitment to innovation in the interest of improving patient outcomes.”
Central DuPage Hospital plans to go live with the first phase of the implementation in the fall of this year.
Panama City, Florida–based iSirona helps clinicians make more informed decisions about patients by providing an easy to use approach to medical device integration. Using iSirona’s software solution, hospitals can connect virtually any medical device to their CIS, providing clinicians with faster access to more accurate patient information.
