Biomedical Device Integration. Getting Vitals Where and When Its Needed Most

In the world of medical technology, increasing connectivity across care settings to get vital real-time patient health information into electronic medical records (EMRs) is of growing importance with the accelerated adoption of EMRs occurring across the country. As The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) sees their Meaningful Use of Electronic Health Records (EHRs) program helping increase the procurement and implementation of EHRs across eligible hospitals and eligible providers (48% and 19% respectively that have received incentive payments through May 2012),i the opportunity for biomedical device integration (BMDI) is becoming ever more important. In this white paper, we provide some insights to key issues in BMDI implementation, a case study on Sentara Healthcare and how they have managed their BMDI program, and benefits from BMDI implementations.
