According to a press release issued today, Capsule Tech Inc, a provider of medical device connectivity, has launched a video series created to educate clinicians and IT staff within hospitals and healthcare organizations on the important role that medical device integration plays in improving healthcare IT. The video series, “Connected Consultants,” will begin by addressing the issues and benefits around topics such as manual charting, hardware, workflow, and the enterprise.
The company says that medical device integration is a top priority for hospitals across the globe because of the benefits it brings to clinicians, IT personnel, biomeds, and executives in the hospital setting. Capsule says that its new video series addresses the challenges hospitals face in connection with their current processes and illustrates how device integration can enhance the efficiency of clinicians while improving patient care and decision-making.
The series will begin with “Manual Charting,” a look at how device integration solves manual charting issues. Capsule says that manual charting has long been a process that slows the efficiency of nurses and other clinicians. Video hosts will show step-by-step how device integration automates the charting process and improves the accuracy and availability of critical patient information.
As the series unfolds, video hosts will also uncover myths associated with the use of hardware in conjunction with medical device integration and show why clinician workflow should focus on the patient, not devices. Lastly, the videos address the need for an “enterprise vision” when implementing device integration to "improve scalability and positively impact patient care across the entire hospital enterprise."
“Capsule is committed to continually educating executives in hospitals and healthcare organizations on solutions that address the most challenging healthcare IT issues,” says Stuart Long, North American President of Capsule, in the release. “The Connected Consultants video series is a creative approach coupled with insightful explanation on the value of medical device integration as the road map for healthcare IT reform unfolds.”
Three subsequent videos will be announced in the coming weeks and additional videos will be released throughout 2012. Click here to view the first video in the series on the challenges of manual charting.
