Four acute care hospitals implemented medical device integration into new electronic health record
Milford, CT /PRNewswire/ - Bernoulli®, a leader in real-time connected healthcare, announced the successful go-live of its advanced Bernoulli One™ clinical surveillance, medical device integration (MDI), and real-time data analytics platform at four acute care hospitals within Main Line Health, a not-for-profit health system near Philadelphia. Bernoulli One™ was integrated into the health system's new electronic health record (EHR) system.
"This is one of the largest technological implementations in the history of Main Line Health," said Troy Brailo, the health system's EHR Applications Manager. "Bernoulli has been an outstanding partner during the implementation. The education and information they provided us on the complexities of medical device integration were invaluable."
The integration occurred at Lankenau Medical Center, Paoli Hospital, Bryn Mawr Hospital and Riddle Hospital. It will impact more than 450 beds across the sites, including intensive care units, emergency departments and neonatal intensive care units.
Bernoulli One™ offers detailed data schemes, functional assessment and clinical support for a broad range of medical devices from every major manufacturer and uses a standard HL7 interface and the existing network infrastructure to capture, clarify and share distributed data into a variety of interfaces and EHR systems automatically. The solution's FDA Class II clearance means it can be used for active patient monitoring as well as secondary alarm management.
Bernoulli One™ also offers the lowest overall cost of ownership, with a single system management controller that does not require expensive add-ons, easy plug-and-play connectivity, the highest level of patient data security and privacy, integrated clinical mobility and positive patient association.
"Achieving medical device connectivity is a major initiative for health systems like Main Line," said Janet Dillione, CEO of Bernoulli. "We are very excited to play a significant role in Main Line's ability to capture and utilize meaningful and accurate data, in real-time, for insightful clinical decision support and improved patient outcomes."
