Mahwah, NJ – March 6, 2018 Mindray solutions demonstrate use of standard integrated IHE and HL7 communication protocols at HIMSS Interoperability Showcase, Booth #11995
Mindray announces its participation in the HIMSS Conference and Exhibition opening today in Las Vegas, Nevada. Following up on the company’s participation in the IHE North America Connectathon 2018 in January, Mindray will demonstrate its integration capabilities in the HIMSS Interoperability Showcase’s “Transplant Care” use case, Booth #11995. The demonstration features Mindray’s integration-ready solutions with industry partners for EMR reporting and alarm management.
The Interoperability Showcase “use cases” are designed to show seamless integration of information using currently available solutions and communication protocols in a variety of real world clinical settings. The “Transplant Care” use case follows 20-year old Adrian’s liver transplant surgery. From the operating room, she moves to the ICU and then is transferred to the general ward. Mindray supports this use case starting with the A7 Anesthesia Workstation and Passport 17m Patient Monitor with the T1 Transport Monitor/Module. Patient data are exported from those solutions via the eGateway Integration Engine to the EMR. The eGateway also handles export of real time alarm information with waveforms to the alarm management platform supporting intelligent distribution to providers outside the direct clinical setting.
Each of the Mindray solutions include industry standard communication protocols. “Mindray has long supported the use of industry standard interfaces such as the IHE PCD technical framework and HL7,” said Richard Cipolli, VP Product Development at Mindray North America. “Use of these standards across our portfolio of solutions can reduce the expenses that are frequently associated with proprietary protocols, such as middleware and associated license fees. The eGateway Integration Engine can also serve as a single connection point for Mindray solutions within the hospital enterprise, reducing complexity and improving integration efficiencies.”
A variety of standards are supported by Mindray monitoring and anesthesia solutions. The A-Series anesthesia systems export data in HL7 using the IHE PCD technical framework specification, while the Passport 17m monitors aggregate through the eGateway which also meets the HL7 IHE PCD specification. This communication capability is standard in Mindray configurations. The T1 Transport Monitor/Module goes further. Through the use of the 802.11n dual band, continuous monitoring of a patient is now possible across the hospital enterprise leveraging a standard WiFi infrastructure. The Mindray eGateway Integration Engine supports communications with hospital ADT, CIS, alarm management, and EMR solutions using HL7 communications.
“Mindray has become a leader with a comprehensive patient monitoring portfolio, anesthesia delivery systems, and ultrasound,” said Wayne Quinn, President of Mindray North America. “We recognize that interoperability with hospital systems must be an integral part of our enterprise solutions. The HIMSS Interoperability Showcase provides us with the opportunity to demonstrate those solutions and our partnerships with other leading companies.”
