Company Grows Clinical Team with Recent Introduction of its SmartLinx Medical Device Information System
ANDOVER, Mass., May 7, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- As National Nurses Week kicks off, Capsule Tech, Inc., the leading global provider of medical device integration solutions, expresses its support and thanks to the nursing community. Nurses are not only on the front lines of healthcare with patients, but are also essential contributors to the product development process that is evolving care and bringing powerful, patient-saving products to market.
"One of the most distinguishing facts about our medical device integration products is that they have been designed with nurses for nurses. National Nurses Week is particularly significant to us," said Susan Niemeier, RN, chief nursing officer at Capsule. "I believe one of the key reasons why we are so dominant in the device integration market is that our products have been expressly developed to streamline documentation of patient data and optimize clinical productivity and efficiency. I'm proud to say that Capsule's commitment to being a clinical company has only been reinforced by our introduction of the SmartLinx medical device information system and our addition of more experienced nurses to our clinical team."
Capsule recently announced at the annual AONE conference that the company will continue to invest in developing its clinical expertise. By growing its registered nurses on staff, Capsule's clinical team will continue to provide real-world experience to the research and design process.
Capsule is the leading global provider of medical device integration solutions. With a specific focus on patient-centered care, Capsule's new SmartLinx MDIS connects medical devices into an integrated system that not only provides connectivity with electronic medical records (EMRs) and other information systems, but also delivers monitoring, management, and analysis of real-time patient data. Through powerful surveillance tools and actionable information, SmartLinx will enable clinicians to recognize the signs of a patient's physiological deterioration and take immediate action before the onset of adverse events, or even mortality. Operational analytics tools assist IT and clinical engineering to easily manage and optimize the server, software and hardware components of the MDIS.
"This year's National Nurses Week theme, 'Nurses Leading the Way,' speaks to Capsule's commitment to clinical performance and our recognition of nurses as true leaders in healthcare," Niemeier explained. "Nurses provide much more than patient care. They are the hub around which so much of a hospital's activity occurs. Not only are they practitioners, but they are critical innovators and influencers in all aspects of healthcare."
National Nurses Week begins each year on May 6th and ends on May 12th, Florence Nightingale's birthday. As of 1998, May 8 was designated as National Student Nurses Day, to be celebrated annually. As of 2003, National School Nurse Day is celebrated on the Wednesday within National Nurses Week (May 6-12) each year.
