Automate the collection of vital signs and other medical device results across the continuum of care.
Cerner’s integrated devices ensure the right data is presented in the right format at the right time to improve health outcomes.
CareAware VitalsLink: NCH Healthcare System went from 1 minute and 42 seconds to document a single set of vitals to 18 seconds.
CareAware VitalsLink: NCH Healthcare System went from having a 46-minute gap between taking and charting a patient’s vitals to only a 27-second gap.
CareAware iBus for BMDI: The average time needed to associate patients to devices was reduced from 90 seconds to 10 seconds—an 89 percent efficiency gain. As a result, UAB Health System can redistribute 66,430 nursing minutes saved per year.
Bring together communications, alarm management and nursing workflow tools on a single device.
CareAware DeviceLink provides a streamlined process by integrating devices that allow clinicians to collect and chart vitals data directly into the EHR at the point of care.
Route incoming event and associated contextual information in notifications to care team members and allow the escalation of notifications between clinicians.
CareAware iBus is the core infrastructure component of the overarching CareAware architecture. It enables plug-and-play connectivity between devices and the EHR.
CareAware VitalsLink provides a streamlined, barcode-driven process on an integrated device for clinicians to chart vitals data directly into the EHR at the point of care.
Cerner Patient Observer is a virtual observation solution that allows a trained observation technician to monitor multiple patient rooms from a central monitoring station, reducing sitter labor costs and preventing falls and other adverse events that occur in hospitals.
CareAware Validation is focused on connecting devices to the CareAware iBus. It also includes a layer of assurance that the device performs in the context of a specific workflow. Devices are tested against specific criteria for each solution in order to become validated.
When CareAware® was launched in 2007, medical device connectivity was a new endeavor for health care organizations, technology companies and device manufacturers. Years later, Cerner and our clients have gone beyond connectivity to request devices perform in the context of a clinical workflow. Cerner’s CareAware Validation program is an active approach to partner relationships across development, sales, marketing, and support. The program is focused on connecting devices to our CareAware iBus® as well as providing an additional layer of assurance that the device performs in the context of a specific workflow.
With nearly 60 validated partners today, we work closely to capture and deliver pertinent clinical data to any EHR.
