Meaningful Use and Medical Device Integration

Meaningful Use and Medical Device Integration Capsule Tech White Paper

White Paper

Medical device integration is quickly becoming a top priority at hospitals today because of the numerous benefits it offers across the healthcare enterprise:

  • Its implementation improves the timeliness and accuracy of documentation and enables more time for direct patient care
  • More timely and accurate data improves decision making and therefore complements CPOE initiatives
  • When hospitals use a vendor neutral device integration solution, they also have the added benefit of making devices and systems interoperable

All of these benefits in and of themselves are enough to justify the implementation of device integration, however it is also a technology that can help hospitals qualify for meaningful in all three of the current phases.

This white paper will explore how device connectivity will help hospitals better meet these objectives and therefore help them qualify for stimulus dollars in the years to come.
