Securely connecting patients to their care.
Out of necessity, most clinicians will have jotted a patient’s vitals down on a scrap of paper, their hand or the sleeve of their clothing at some point. Medical device integration promotes a safer clinical practice. Bedside devices ensure that vital signs are captured electronically and securely transferred to the EHR in real-time. This allows clinicians to provide the most appropriate care to their patients by having access to the most clinically relevant information in one place.
The CareAware platform is designed to be adaptable to emerging industry standards and allows validated medical devices to connect to the EHR, regardless of supplier. While interoperability is important, data security is our priority. We offer guidelines for access control, patch management, antivirus programs and firewalls to support your organisation in meeting cybersecurity expectations.
CareAware Validation offers you a layer of assurance – ensuring that the right devices have been validated to support specific workflows. The validation process comprises standards that have been established collaboratively with clients by clinical, technical and solution experts. Devices are thoroughly tested before they are deemed as validated.
Cerner’s Rapid Response dashboard now allows nurses at Kingston Hospital NHS Foundation Trust to work proactively when they’re dealing with people in critical care, reducing lengths of stays and improving the patient experience.
In an effort to provide more efficient, effective care, Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust (Imperial) implemented near real-time capturing of patient observations/vital signs directly into their electronic patient record, releasing an estimated 5,800+ nursing hours to patient care over a 15-month period.
“Using Cerner CareAware VitalsLink® and CareAware iBus® for Bedside Medical Device Integration (BMDI), clinicians... reduced the time it takes to document a patient’s observations and vital signs by 53.5 percent.”
— Gerry Bolger, nurse clinical lead for informatics and chief clinical information officer, Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust
“Now with the medical devices integration, with one click, this data is getting transferred to the system and to the patient record. It’s much faster and much more efficient.”
— Elizabeth Varughese, nursing informatics coordinator, Hamad Medical Corporation
