Panama, Fla-based company iSirona, a provider of solutions for medical device integration, announced go-lives at St Francis Medical Center in Lynwood, Calif, and O’Connor Hospital in San Jose, Calif.
St Francis and O’Connor are part of a larger system, Daughters of Charity Health System (DCHS), which plans to add to its iSirona’s connectivity solution across its six hospitals with the ultimate goal of connecting 16,000 medical devices to its QuadraMed EMR. “We knew we had to streamline the process of capturing data from medical devices,” says David Siva, director of medical IS and technology at DCHS. “It was paramount to our organization that we have a quality tool for validating patient data.”
DCHS clinicians were impressed by iSirona’s DataAuthenticator functionality, which provides them with a final step prior to delivering data to the EMR. Allowing DCHS to authenticate or review the data and make changes or notes if necessary prior to committing that data to the EMR.
