Integrated Medical Device Data Management Solution Designed to Fill the Gaps in Electronic Medical Records
Masimo (NASDAQ: MASI) has announced the debut of Iris™ Gateway, a server-based software solution for integrating medical device data, at the HIMSS (Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society) 2016 Annual Conference and Exhibition in Las Vegas.
Data generated from medical devices remain captive within each device, and may not be captured in the patients' electronic medical records (EMR). Iris Gateway can provide a timely and cost-effective solution by connecting to existing medical devices and performing the required translations to move the data from the devices into EMRs. Iris Gateway can be deployed on a remote server farm or as a server appliance in the hospital.
The Iris ports on the Root® patient monitor allow other medical devices (such as infusion pumps, ventilators, patient monitors, and "smart" beds) to connect to Iris Gateway via Root. Data from these connected devices can be associated with the patient and entered into the patient's EMR, via Iris Gateway. Root with noninvasive blood pressure and temperature measurements, deployed at the bedside or on a roll stand, can chart these parameters at the point of care while also copying the data into an EMR.
"Iris Gateway is an important part of Masimo's goal of bridging medical device data silos," said Joe Kiani, Founder and CEO of Masimo. "It can be used to connect isolated devices to hospital EMR systems in high-acuity settings like the OR and the ICU or in low-acuity settings like medical-surgical units. When data from different medical devices is more readily available in the patient's electronic medical record, they may provide a clearer and more complete picture of the patient. At Masimo, we are dedicated to providing clinicians with vital information when they need it most."
