Accent on Integration® (AOI®), a leading provider of integration software and medical device connectivity solutions, today announced that it was selected for the second consecutive year to participate in the HIMSS Interoperability Showcase™. Touted as the nation’s premier forum highlighting the Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise’s (IHE) common framework, the HIMSS13 Interoperability Showcase brings solution providers and decision-makers together in a “seeing is believing” interactive environment where attendees become the patient in a clinical use-case scenario and watch their health data move from system to system.
Throughout the event, AOI will integrate vital signs monitors, smart infusion pumps and telemetry beds with a hospital information system (HIS) in a live demo using its Accelero Connect® healthcare integration platform. Accelero Connect is an FDA-registered Medical Device Data System (MDDS) that seamlessly integrates patient care devices with hospital EMRs and other clinical systems.
“Because integration solutions like Accelero Connect automate how medical device data is captured and recorded, hospitals can improve patient care and safety by ensuring that clinicians have access to pertinent patient data at all times,” said Marc C. Andiel, co-founder and CEO of AOI. “We are excited for the opportunity to participate in the Interoperability Showcase again this year and demonstrate how healthcare organizations can leverage technologies to their fullest potential by integrating disparate systems and devices.”
Accelero Connect is vendor-, manufacturer- and modality-neutral and has helped several healthcare organizations eliminate data silos, streamline clinician workflow and reduce the risk of possible documentation errors. Additionally, Accelero Connect includes an intuitive user interface that enables clinicians to easily view data from multiple patient monitoring devices and quickly filter and select which data should be documented in the legal patient record.
“Integration and data-sharing technologies can have a great impact on patient care and clinician workflow, as well as play a significant role in helping hospitals and healthcare organizations reach their healthcare and meaningful use goals. However, many hospitals are forced to delay integration projects because they don’t have the time, resources or integration expertise needed,” said Andiel. “AOI understands these and other common roadblocks, and we are committed to helping hospitals and healthcare systems of all sizes improve patient care by interconnecting disparate technologies and ensuring the high availability of patient-specific information.”
AOI will demonstrate Accelero Connect in the demo area for Use Case No. 8 at the HIMSS13 Interoperability Showcase March 4-6, in New Orleans. For more information about AOI or to schedule a demo at HIMSS, please e-mail AOI at [email protected].

Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.

WebRTC is about the data channel as much as about video and audio conferencing. However, basically all commercial WebRTC applications have been built with a focus on audio and video. The handling of “data” has been limited to text chat and file download – all other data sharing seems to end with screensharing. What is holding back a more intensive use of peer-to-peer data? In her session at @ThingsExpo, Dr Silvia Pfeiffer, WebRTC Applications Team Lead at National ICT Australia, looked at differ...

Adding public cloud resources to an existing application can be a daunting process. The tools that you currently use to manage the software and hardware outside the cloud aren’t always the best tools to efficiently grow into the cloud. All of the major configuration management tools have cloud orchestration plugins that can be leveraged, but there are also cloud-native tools that can dramatically improve the efficiency of managing your application lifecycle. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, ...

With all the incredible momentum behind the Internet of Things (IoT) industry, it is easy to forget that not a single CEO wakes up and wonders if “my IoT is broken.” What they wonder is if they are making the right decisions to do all they can to increase revenue, decrease costs, and improve customer experience – effectively the same challenges they have always had in growing their business. The exciting thing about the IoT industry is now these decisions can be better, faster, and smarter. Now ...

Who are you? How do you introduce yourself? Do you use a name, or do you greet a friend by the last four digits of his social security number? Assuming you don’t, why are we content to associate our identity with 10 random digits assigned by our phone company? Identity is an issue that affects everyone, but as individuals we don’t spend a lot of time thinking about it. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ben Klang, Founder & President of Mojo Lingo, discussed the impact of technology on identity. Sho...

A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
