With the recent release of version 8.0 of our SmartLinx Medical Device Information System™ (MDIS) we’ve delivered two major advancements offering a new level of advanced integration and added functionality to help hospitals improve the delivery of patient care and enhance operational efficiencies.

We’ve introduced SmartLinx Vitals Plus™, an integrated patient monitoring system that provides device connectivity, monitoring, and documentation all in one device, right at the bedside.  Schedule a demo of this unique platform that delivers performance and value today and well into the future.

And we’ve extended the power of medical device data beyond the EMR with an Advanced Integration capability that delivers contextual device data to additional hospital systems, like alarm management. Please join us for a series of conversations with industry pros around alarm management.

Alarm Management Systems: Learn from Subject-Matter Experts

Once again, Capsule will host informal discussions with industry thought leaders in our booth.  This year we have guests from Medical Informatics, Connexall, and Extension Healthcare who will share trends in alarm management, the need for their respective solutions, the role SmartLinx can play in providing critical device data, and the value being delivered to healthcare providers.
