Saint Louis University Hospital, a general medical and surgical hospital in Saint Louis, Missouri, has selected iSirona’s device connectivity solution in conjunction with its upcoming deployment of the Epic Anesthesia Intraoperative Module.

The Saint Louis hospital hopes to use iSirona’s software solution for integrating anaesthesia machines and cardiac monitors in its operating rooms, interventional radiology areas, and catherisation lab.

iSirona founder and CEO Dave Dyell said that the hospital’s device documentation process is currently broken into multiple systems.

"By implementing iSirona software, it will benefit from a consistent process that facilitates perioperative documentation workflow and ensures accurate delivery of data to the EMR," Dyell added.

iSirona’s software solution provides clinicians with faster access to more accurate patient data by helping hospitals connect virtually any medical device to their CIS.

iSirona vice president of sales Phil Sawa said the fact that iSirona’s solution is software-based played a role in the decision to implement it, as it enables a less complex implementation and support model.

"In addition, they felt the software seemed simple to maintain, yet is complex enough to cover the difficult workflows of their organisation," Sawa added.

Saint Louis University Hospital is a 356-licensed bed quaternary/tertiary referral centre. Through affiliation as the teaching hospital for Saint Louis University, the hospital provides patients and their families with an environment of medical innovation.
