The BedComm platform will facilitate medical device data integration between the health system’s 47 operating room anesthesia monitors and its new Epic electronic health record (EHR).

It will allow to cover all operating rooms in Southcoast Health’s three acute care hospitals and surgery center, including labor and delivery Ors.

BedComm platform features four components, including bedside device integration that helps to automate the collection and documentation of patient vital signs and other bedside monitor data, providing clinicians with accurate and timely patient data

Mobile vitals capture (MVC), along with CarePanel technology, will collect and integrate hospital’s vital signs monitors’ data from medical surgical areas and deliver them to the EHR.

Digital cardiac reports will enable to eliminate the laborious paper drive documentation process, while integration of BedMasterEx client application with the HER will enable clinicians to access patient monitoring waveforms, vital signs, and alarms

Southcoast Health clinical systems director Scott LaRosa said: “BedComm delivers multiple areas of value for us.

“Above all, it ensures that crucial data is where, and when, the anesthesia team needs it. This is fundamental to better decision-­making and ultimately delivering better patient care.”

Excel Medical general manager Lance Burton said: “The results they’re already experiencing from implementing our BedComm technology are just the beginning of remarkable things ahead as we continue our work together.”
