“The 1,000+ device connectivity milestone serves as testament to Philips Capsule MDIP’s capabilities that support the data digitalization needs of today’s healthcare providers,” said Elad Benjamin, general manager of Clinical Data Services at Philips. “We are proud to continually work with our customers to enable more hospitals and systems to experience the benefits of medical device data integration.”
Without a vendor-neutral solution like Philips Capsule MDIP, hospitals may have to turn to customized medical device integration (MDI) solutions, which can be expensive and time-consuming to develop and implement. Such proprietary solutions also often limit integration and interoperability options to a smaller range of technologies, systems, and suppliers, resulting in the need to maintain and support multiple MDI systems. Philips Capsule MDIP eliminates the need for multiple MDI solutions by offering a comprehensive and scalable device integration platform.
Philips Capsule MDIP can enable providers to utilize device data for electronic health record (EHR) documentation, clinical surveillance, decision support, and research. Device data streamed to a virtual ICU workstation can be processed and analyzed to detect emergent patient conditions and generate actionable alerts, helping to reduce the alarm fatigue that can contribute to clinician burnout. Caregivers using decision support applications at the point of care can benefit from having more comprehensive information available for evaluation. While researchers can thoroughly test and verify the effectiveness of clinical methods, procedures, and treatments.
