Capsule, a major company providing medical device connectivity, reported that it is going to work with GE Healthcare to integrate Capsule's connectivity solution with the GE Centricity® Enterprise, Perinatal and Perioperative solution suites. As a result ti the collaboration between the two companies, Capsule will have its Enterprise Device Connectivity Solution, featuring DataCaptor™ and the innovative Capsule Neuron™ platform connected to medical records information provided by GE.
Laurent Rotival, vice president and general manager of GE Healthcare IT, said "Capsule was a natural partner for us because of the value-add they bring to the Centricity products," he added "The integrated solution will save clinicians and nurses countless hours of logging and transcribing valuable patient data at the end of each shift and turn their attention toward direct patient care. Delivering more accurate data, in less time, while enhancing patient care really amounts to the kind of change we're trying to drive."
Moreover, John Douglass, President, Capsule Tech, Inc. said "This new partnership with GE Healthcare represents a major milestone for Capsule because it is about more than simply connecting devices to information systems. The GE Centricity Solution delivers collected data across the continuum of care for more informed decision making," he added "GE Healthcare, like Capsule, understands the importance of getting timely and accurate patient data automatically recorded and integrated into a patient's electronic medical record (EMR), both for improved clinician efficiency and better patient care. More importantly, both companies realize the added benefits of ensuring that the data goes beyond the medical record to all areas of the hospital where the data is needed. The GE Centricity/Capsule Solution fills this need. We are excited to roll out Capsule as the connectivity solution of choice for the GE Centricity solution suite as it continues to be installed at hospitals across the country."
