Implementing a common device connectivity infrastructure that is vendor interoperable will provide system-wide efficiency, patient safety benefits, and improve the quality of care
San Francisco Bay Area, CA (PRWEB) January 12, 2010 -- Bay Area-based Nuvon, Inc., a provider of next generation BMDI (Biomedical Device Integration) solutions, and Virtua, a multi-hospital healthcare system headquartered in Marlton, NJ, are working together to deliver a world class patient experience using leading edge device connectivity and integration solutions in the clinical environment.
“To allow our clinicians to focus on patient care, we see medical device integration as a critical feature in our clinical information systems to automate clinician workflow and provide accurate, real time device data for clinical decisions,” said Linda Chan, IS Systems Integration Manager at Virtua. “Nuvon’s integrated solution is flexible enough to support different clinical workflow and devices in various care areas. Its architecture ensures that 100% of all device data is captured and is fully recoverable, and the enhanced RSA security levels assure HIPAA compliance. The Nuvon system can also be easily scaled up to accommodate future growth and demand. Another major advantage of the system is their secure web-based remote monitoring and trouble-shooting platform that allows for effective and speedy problem identification and resolution.”
Nuvon’s vectored event grid architecture (VEGA) enables true interoperability across disparate devices, networks, and systems by utilizing dynamically programmable intelligent appliances at the network edge. Based on this design, Nuvon increases and extends the already compelling ROI for biomedical device connectivity (BMDI). Because Nuvon’s solution is vendor independent, device or system decisions made in the past, present, or future can be integrated into a common system utilizing Nuvon’s hardware, software, and IP overlay network framework. Nuvon provides new levels of patient data detail, in realtime, at the point of care for improved decision support applications while also providing new levels of flexibility for user-defined configuration and control for device connectivity, monitoring and management, resulting in better allocation of personnel resources and reduced support costs.
“We could not have found a better partner than Virtua,” said Vaughan Zakian, founder and CTO of Nuvon. “Virtua is an innovative supporter of next generation technologies that can be brought to bear to solve the challenges facing healthcare today. And what’s so encouraging for companies such as Nuvon is that Virtua asks tough questions and is demanding, but when you show that you really do what you say you can do, they are with you 1000%. We have built a solid partnership that will grow as Nuvon continues to deliver meaningful and valuable solutions.”
