Extension Healthcare Exhibiting at Siemens Innovations for Healthcare IT

Extension Healthcare announced today that it will exhibit its next generation clinical alarm management and care team collaboration solution, Extension Engage™, at the upcoming Siemens Innovations ’14 customer conference in Tampa, FL August 10-12.

Siemens Healthcare is a leading provider of enterprise electronic health record (EHR) solutions with embedded workflow technology that brings the benefits of business process management into the healthcare environment. The most advanced EHR-extender (EHR-e) on the market today, Extension Engage, enhances the functionality of Soarian Clinicals, extending its ability to improve workflow communication via wireless IP and smartphone integration. When coupled with Soarian Clinicals, Engage intelligently notifies nurses, physicians, and other appropriate care team members of critical patient events, helping to reduce treatment delays while enabling an optimized event response workflow via presence-based voice and secure text messaging.

“Now that most Siemens hospitals have deployed CPOE and met minimum meaningful-use requirements, these innovators and early adopters are exploring practical ways to optimize the use of current systems by connecting their clinicians to improve efficiencies,” said Brian McAlpine, VP of Marketing and Product Management at Extension Healthcare. “One way is to leverage existing unified communications infrastructure combined with new wireless technologies such as smartphones to help enable event-driven collaboration between care team members. By offering Extension Engage as a value-added complement to its enterprise EHR, Siemens is now able to securely mobilize the functionality of one of its key differentiators, its workflow engine. This enables alerts – with relevant patient context – to be extended beyond legacy pagers and email to caregivers’ mobile devices, facilitating a more efficient process for each to receive and respond to clinical events.”

Siemens chose to align with Extension in part because of Extension’s unique ability to capture HL7 data from an EHR, and link the data with clinical events such as STAT Orders and Critical Lab Results that generate context-aware alert and alarm notifications, while managing prioritization, escalation, and tracking. By leveraging Extension, Siemens is now able to offer closed-loop communication of alerts and messages to mobile IP phones and touch-based smart devices that are quickly proliferating across the healthcare enterprise.

At Innovations ’14, Extension Healthcare will demonstrate how it extends data from Siemens Soarian Clinicals to deliver contextual alert and alarm notifications to caregivers carrying wireless communication devices. Visit booth #608 for a demonstration.
