June 23, 2014
Awarepoint, a premier provider of advanced cloud-based, real-time location system (RTLS) solutions to healthcare industries, declared their official collaboration with the Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise (IHE) interoperability showcase at this year’s Association for Advancement of Medical Instrumentation (AAMI) Conference & Expo held from May 31-June 2 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
Awarepoint took part as IHE’s Patient Care Device (PCD) Medical Equipment Management (MEM) RTLS vendor member. In that role, this top RTLS solutions provider collaborated with fellow members like B. Braun, GuardRFID, Iatric Systems, Cerner, and Philips. Demonstrations were also held at AAMI’s conference booth #108 that showcased their respective enterprise system applications and medical devices using PCD standards-based messaging framework to optimize patient care and safety at economical operating costs.
Awarepoint exhibited in the interoperability showcase how the electronic medical record (EMR) and infusion pump integration using PCD-10 standard HL7 messages significantly cut down the expenses as it streamlines clinical workflow efficiency as well as asset management and analytics.
IHE PCD planning committee former co-chair Steve Merritt said, "It's exciting to see the MEM groups so close to publishing a trial implementation document that allows medical devices, location services and CMMS systems to interoperate." He shared how it is truly rewarding to see the community united towards the advancement of patient safety and clinical efficiency, while saving on healthcare delivery costs.
Awarepoint President and CEO Jay Deady also took pride in the company’s engagement with IHE’s initiative to streamline the intravenous (IV) pump systems with the EMRs. "Much like the evolution of the EMR, the industry is recognizing the need for a fully integrated RTLS platform and the ability to exchange and interpret data across systems and devices,” added Deady.
He adds that an all-encompassing, interoperable RTLS suite could maximize the investment made by healthcare providers in electronic health records (EHRs), computerized maintenance management systems (CMMS) and any other prevalent health systems in transition (HiT) by way of automated generation of real-time location data, which promotes better efficiency and faster results.
Interoperability initiatives that primarily involve EMR and IV pump integrations can help further advance today’s quality of patient care, drug administration safety, and even clinical enterprise assets management. To cope with the evolving technology demands of these fast-paced healthcare systems, it is critical for healthcare providers and clinicians to utilize only high-performance IV pump systems and accessories.
