Mercy Health Services, a university-affiliated medical facility in Baltimore has selected Bernoulli, a provider of real-time patient safety, to deliver medical device connectivity to the health system’s perioperative suite. The company will implement its Bernoulli One architecture in anesthesia devices and will be part of Mercy’s perioperative Epic EHR go-live in 2018.
Based on a modular architecture, device data captured by Bernoulli MDI can integrate with all hospital information systems that require data, including the EHR, clinical data warehouse/repository, alarm management/clinical communications & collaboration system, telemedicine/Virtual ICU, research applications and more, making it the ultimate platform for interoperability. As new standards (data formats, communication protocols, etc.) are adopted, Bernoulli can incorporate them and update existing installations to facilitate compliance.
“Bernoulli has a great deal of experience working with Epic,” said John Goldbeck, Senior Programmer Analyst for Mercy Health Services said in a statement. “They possess the capabilities to deliver a fully integrated, system-wide platform with comprehensive device connectivity.”
Bernoulli One offers detailed data schemes, functional assessment and clinical support for myriad medical devices. It uses a standard HL7 interface and existing network infrastructure to automatically capture and distribute data into interfaces and EHR systems. In addition, Bernoulli One offers the lowest overall cost of ownership and highest level of patient data security and privacy. It also features plug-and-play connectivity and integrated clinical mobility.
“Installing a new EHR requires a collaborative relationship between solutions providers and multiple stakeholders,” said Bernoulli CEO Janet Dillione. “We are excited to play a critical role in Mercy’s journey toward improved clinical workflows and patient safety.”
