Mercy Medical Center in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, US, has opted for iSirona’s device connectivity software that works within the Epic EMR to improve the quality of patient care.

The 445 licensed-bed regional hospital is planning to get around 150 devices online, including anaesthesia and dialysis machines, for automation of patient data flow directly into its Epic EMR.

"The accuracy of our data will be much improved, and our clinicians will be able to spend more time with their patients, which is something we take great pride in."

Mercy Medical Center CIO Jeff Cash said that the implementation of iSirona’s software solution creates a win-win situation for the hospital.

"The accuracy of our data will be much improved, and our clinicians will be able to spend more time with their patients, which is something we take great pride in," Cash added.

Sirona’s software-based solution eliminates the need to obtain additional, single-use hardware.

As the technology works within the Epic EMR, Mercy clinicians will have access to precise and timely patient data without drastically changing the existing workflow.

iSirona’s vendor-neutral software solution, integrated with Epic, collects patient data from any device and delivers it to the patient record.

The technology is developed in accordance with the FDA’s quality system regulation controls, according to the company.
