Relationship Expected to Result in Improved Nursing Productivity in the Treatment of Renal Disease
Panama City, Fla. (PRWEB) February 27, 2009 -- iSirona®, an innovative provider of data automation solutions for healthcare providers, today announced that it has signed an agreement with NxStage Medical, Inc. (Nasdaq: NXTM), a leading manufacturer of innovative dialysis products. Under the agreement, iSirona will develop the iSirona Gateway for the NxStage System One™ renal dialysis system.
The iSirona gateway is being developed to allow NxStage customers to integrate critical data from their NxStage products into their hospital information systems. Once completed, the gateway will allow critical care facilities to leverage the NxStage System One's robust data collection capabilities and take advantage of iSirona's proprietary Positive Patient Identification logic. This will ensure that patient data retrieved from a device is accurately linked to the correct patient.
"The NxStage System One is a robust and innovative solution, offering treatment flexibility and ease of use to caregivers in the critical care setting," states Jeffrey H. Burbank, CEO of NxStage Medical, Inc. "We look forward to working with iSirona with the goal of delivering increased return on investment and benefits to System One customers within the critical care market."
"We are excited to work with NxStage in delivering connectivity between the System One and clinical information systems such as the EMR," says Peter Witonsky, iSirona's president and chief sales officer. "Not only will this functionality ensure that the data is documented to the correct patient, it will improve the speed and accuracy of data available for clinical review and decision making."
