You’d be surprised how many health care facilities are struggling with basic device and data connectivity. We feel that ViNES is well positioned for this underserved field; it’s something we see exploding in the next few years.
Milwaukee, WI (PRWEB) June 24, 2015
Wisconsin-based True Process announced today that it has partnered with The Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto to provide data connectivity and storage for medical devices and electronic hospital systems. The partnership will bring True Process’ medical device integration (MDI) software ViNES® to this highly respected Canadian hospital’s research programs. With the development of ViNES and under these programs, clinical data from patient monitors and infusion pumps will be captured, stored, and routed intelligently to cutting edge analytics systems and will be used as a platform for other research projects at the hospital.
“This is an exciting partnership for True Process. The capabilities and intended use of our ViNES software align perfectly with Sick Kids ongoing research needs,” says company CEO and founder, Todd Dunsirn. “We are starting with patient monitors and infusion pumps, but plan to expand the partnership to include other care devices, including ventilators and specialty monitoring devices.”
While most of the device connectivity market is centered on medical record integration, True Process has focused on interoperability and flexibility with ViNES, building it as a clinical data toolkit that captures and stores medical device and system data, then delivers it on-demand in standardized, vendor-neutral formats. This provides healthcare facilities with ownership of their data and the ability to utilize the data as they see fit.
“You’d be surprised how many health care facilities are struggling with basic device and data connectivity. We feel that ViNES is well positioned for this underserved field; it’s something we see exploding in the next few years,” added Mr. Dunsirn.
True Process is proud to partner with The Hospital for Sick Children, an innovator in the field of pediatric medicine. Centered in the cardiac and newborn critical care units, this research program sends clinical data to systems that allow the unification, visualization, and analysis of this data. Use of predictive modeling software can provide another safety layer to physicians by identifying potential risks in patient stability or detecting the onset of certain medical conditions before symptoms become visible. True Process’ technology is having a real-world impact on the health of those who are most vulnerable.

About Medical Device Integration: Medical Device Integration (MDI) is the transportation of clinically-significant medical data from medical devices to hospital information systems. While there exist solutions to accomplish this, they tend to be expensive, focusing solely on submitting low-resolution measurements to the medical record. What has been missing is a connectivity solution that can capture, store, and route standardized, high-resolution data to the growing number of advanced analytics systems. ViNES® from True Process is a next generation MDI solution.
About True Process: True Process is a Wisconsin-based provider of clinical data solutions and strategies. With more device implementation and integration experience than any independent provider in North America, True Process helps companies devise processes for device deployment, service design, and support. Real-world experience drives innovations as well, with the ViNES®, VeriScan®, and NetPrintTM products.
About ViNES: ViNES is a medical device integration (MDI) software suite developed by True Process that can capture clinical data, store it indefinitely, and then route it intelligently. Additionally, the core technology can serve as the basis of a device or system gateway, providing a standards-based, vendor-neutral data integration platform. ViNES is used by both device manufacturers and healthcare facilities alike.
About The Hospital for Sick Children: The Hospital for Sick Children (Sick Kids) is a 370-bed children’s healthcare facility, treating more than 14,000 patients in 2014. With a staff of over 1,000 that are actively involved with ongoing research activities, Sick Kids is consistently ranked among the top research hospitals in Canada.
