Cerner, Spacelabs Integrate to Create Better Connectivity
SNOQUALMIE, Wash. --(Business Wire)--
CareAware(R), Cerner's (News - Alert) connectivity platform, and Spacelabs
established a new benchmark in open system architecture, to streamline
the clinical workflow for monitored patients. CareAware solutions
provide a comprehensive strategy for robust medical device integration,
alarm management and mobile-enabled care team communication. Spacelabs
XprezzNet is a highly efficient network interface that allows Spacelabs
monitoring products to communicate with CareAware.
The Cerner and Spacelabs strategic relationship enhances patient safety
by eliminating duplicate patient identification numbers,
associating/disassociating from a monitoring device with the EHR, and
automatically discharging patients without having to touch the monitor.
Connecting the Spacelabs monitor to CareAware offers clients the
Use a single, bidirectional (Patient to Device Association)
communication stream to improve efficiencies and workflow access
across the continuum

the patient's chart
When nurses connect the monitoring device to the patient, patient health
information (PHI) is displayed on the device. The PHI thatis displayed
on the monitoring device is determined by the policies of each client,
however, all data is cleared from the device when it is disassociated.
This eliminates potential errors created by assigning patient data to
another patient's record.
"Through a strong relationship with Cerner, we have created an
unprecedented system that will streamline clinical workflow and provide
more time for individual patient care," said Spacelabs President,
Nicholas Ong. "This is a new benchmark in open-system architecture
because of its capabilities, efficiencies and scalability to support
networks of all sizes."
This integration will be featured at the 2014 AACN's National Teaching
Institute & Critical Care Exposition in the Spacelabs booth (1319).
