Capsule Launches SmartLinx™ Medical Device Information System

Industry's First MDIS Utilizes Point-of-Care Device Data to Deliver Timely, Actionable Clinical and Operational Insight From All Connected Medical Devices

ANDOVER, Mass., Feb. 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Capsule Tech, Inc., the leading global provider of medical device integration solutions, today announced the introduction of its SmartLinx™ Medical Device Information System (MDIS), the industry's first MDIS. With Capsule's focus on patient-centered care, SmartLinx was developed to connect medical devices into an integrated system that not only provides connectivity with electronic medical records (EMRs) and other information systems, but also delivers monitoring, management, and analysis of real-time patient data. Through powerful surveillance tools and actionable information, SmartLinx will enable clinicians to recognize the signs of a patient's physiological deterioration and take immediate action before the onset of adverse events, or even mortality. Operational analytics tools assist IT and clinical engineering to easily manage and optimize the server, software and hardware components of the MDIS.

HIMSS 2014

Capsule will be introducing SmartLinx at the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) 2014 Annual Conference and Exhibition this week in Orlando, FL. The suite of products in the SmartLinx portfolio provides the ability to connect, monitor, analyze and act:

  • SmartLinx Administrator web based tool to manage the server, software, and hardware components of the MDIS
  • SmartLinx Neuron 2 with Vitals Stream and Secure Association for continuous data collection
  • SmartLinx Neuron 2 with Chart Xpress and Early Warning Scoring System for periodic data collection
  • SmartLinx Neuron 2 with Vitals Plus for active monitoring
  • SmartLinx IQ operational analytics to optimize the MDIS
  • SmartLinx ESP (Early. Surveillance. Predictive.) with Clinical Vigilance™ for Sepsis powered by Amara Health Analytics
  • SmartLinx Axon single port Wi-Fi connectivity module
  • SmartLinx Client software-based solution for existing hospital PCs

Attendees can expect to experience smarter device connectivity as well as product demonstrations at the following three locations:

  • Capsule's Booth #2329  
  • The Intelligent Hospital Pavilion – Hall E, Booth 8265
  • Interoperability Showcase™ –  Hall F

"In launching SmartLinx, Capsule is addressing recurring requests from healthcare organizations to do more with their medical device data – to provide early identification and notification of patient deterioration and sepsis detection, and to help them better manage the life of their connected devices, among a number of capabilities," said Stuart Long, Capsule's chief marketing and sales officer.  "Unlike the laboratory, cardiology, radiology and other various types of hospital information systems that are comprised of a system of components that manage and provide a variety of services for their users, medical devices are not managed as a system, yet they provide the most accurate, real-time feed of a patient's vital signs and other critical biometric data.  By taking these devices from just moving data to enabling real-time surveillance and useful analysis of the data, the impact on the quality and cost of care is profound."
