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."

Internet of @ThingsExpo, taking place October 31 - November 2, 2017, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA, is co-located with 21st Cloud Expo and will feature technical sessions from a rock star conference faculty and the leading industry players in the world. The Internet of Things (IoT) is the most profound change in personal and enterprise IT since the creation of the Worldwide Web more than 20 years ago. All major researchers estimate there will be tens of billions devic...
IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.). The explosive proliferation of IoT solutions will result in an exponential growth in the volume of IoT data, precipitating significant Information Governance issues: who owns the IoT data, what are the rights/duties of IoT solutions adopters towards t...
It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged. Old habits die hard, but like most waterfall software projects, most waterfall-style Agile adoption efforts fail to produce the results desired. The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...
With the introduction of IoT and Smart Living in every aspect of our lives, one question has become relevant: What are the security implications? To answer this, first we have to look and explore the security models of the technologies that IoT is founded upon. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Nevi Kaja, a Research Engineer at Ford Motor Company, discussed some of the security challenges of the IoT infrastructure and related how these aspects impact Smart Living. The material was delivered interac...
Wooed by the promise of faster innovation, lower TCO, and greater agility, businesses of every shape and size have embraced the cloud at every layer of the IT stack – from apps to file sharing to infrastructure. The typical organization currently uses more than a dozen sanctioned cloud apps and will shift more than half of all workloads to the cloud by 2018. Such cloud investments have delivered measurable benefits. But they’ve also resulted in some unintended side-effects: complexity and risk. ...
"When we talk about cloud without compromise what we're talking about is that when people think about 'I need the flexibility of the cloud' - it's the ability to create applications and run them in a cloud environment that's far more flexible,” explained Matthew Finnie, CTO of Interoute, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 20th Cloud Expo, held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
No hype cycles or predictions of zillions of things here. IoT is big. You get it. You know your business and have great ideas for a business transformation strategy. What comes next? Time to make it happen. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Jay Mason, Associate Partner at M&S Consulting, presented a step-by-step plan to develop your technology implementation strategy. He discussed the evaluation of communication standards and IoT messaging protocols, data analytics considerations, edge-to-cloud tec...
The Internet giants are fully embracing AI. All the services they offer to their customers are aimed at drawing a map of the world with the data they get. The AIs from these companies are used to build disruptive approaches that cannot be used by established enterprises, which are threatened by these disruptions. However, most leaders underestimate the effect this will have on their businesses. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Rene Buest, Director Market Research & Technology Evangelism at Ara...
When growing capacity and power in the data center, the architectural trade-offs between server scale-up vs. scale-out continue to be debated. Both approaches are valid: scale-out adds multiple, smaller servers running in a distributed computing model, while scale-up adds fewer, more powerful servers that are capable of running larger workloads. It’s worth noting that there are additional, unique advantages that scale-up architectures offer. One big advantage is large memory and compute capacity...
A look across the tech landscape at the disruptive technologies that are increasing in prominence and speculate as to which will be most impactful for communications – namely, AI and Cloud Computing.
