ANDOVER, MA--(Marketwire - February 01, 2011) -
Capsule, the leading provider of medical device connectivity
, today announced that they've sold over 1,100 Capsule Neurons
to more than 35 hospitals in less than 10 months since its release. Leading facilities such as Parkview Health and Mercy Health System chose the Capsule Neuron because of its revolutionary design that integrates with existing technologies and clinical workflows.
The Capsule Neuron, officially released at HIMSS 2010, is the first intelligent touch-screen platform dedicated to managing device connectivity at the bedside. It is the key component of Capsule's Enterprise Medical Device Connectivity Solution; a vendor-neutral, patient-centric solution that allows hospitals to connect virtually any medical device to any information system, in any department of the hospital.
One of the main reasons for the success of the Capsule Neuron can be attributed to its scalability and flexibility. Its revolutionary design easily integrates with the clinical workflow and actually adapts to the environment it operates in. Proof of this can be found with Capsule's release of their Mobile Vitals Plus™ application in September. Mobile Vitals Plus enables the automatic collection, validation and submission of vitals to the EMR right from the point of care by mounting Capsule Neuron on the roll stand with the spot check monitor the hospital is already using. This means that vitals are available in near real-time in the patient's record for improved direct patient care time and enhanced clinical decision making.
The Capsule Neuron simply provides hospitals with a flexible, field upgradeable design that will meet their current device connectivity needs across the enterprise and can grow as their needs grow. In fact, it will continue to expand to feature solutions that enable an optimized workflow and address the challenges around managing association at the bedside; all designed with the clinician in mind to ensure the delivery of patient-centric care solutions that fit the way the nurse and the hospital works.
