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.
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.
CareAware VitalsLink: NCH Healthcare System went from 1 minute and 42 seconds to document a single set of vitals to 18 seconds.
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.
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 is EHR agnostic and vendor neutral. The solution enables interoperability between medical devices, health care applications and the electronic health record, regardless of vendor. The solution allows for unparalleled connectivity to improve the quality of care delivery.
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.
Providers are the front line of patient care, and should have an EHR that meets their needs in an efficient manner. Lights On Network® has the power to transform the EHR experience by pinpointing providers needing assistance, enabling them to spend more time with their patients.
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 member 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 members today, we work closely to capture and deliver pertinent clinical data to any EHR.
