iSirona, a leading provider of simplified solutions for medical device integration, has announced that the North Oaks Health System in Hammond, La., has chosen iSirona for its device connectivity solution. North Oaks will rely on iSirona's flexible software to quickly and accurately move patient data from devices such as its anesthesia machines into North Oaks' electronic medical record.
iSirona's connectivity solution will be implemented in conjunction with the hospital's upcoming Epic go-live. According to iSirona President Peter Witonsky, the concurrent implementation of both Epic and iSirona will prove beneficial. "Addressing device connectivity as part of an EMR implementation allows clients to truly leverage the EMR by populating it with robust patient data," he says. "Electronic patient records that contain accurate, nearly real-time patient data will assist North Oaks' clinicians in making care decisions and, at the same time, get them back to providing more direct patient care."
