The Argos Monitor is now a compatible and "supported device" for Philips IntelliVue Patient Monitoring Systems using the Philips IntelliBridge Interface Module, the IntelliBridge integral Interface Board, or Patient Information Center iX
Retia Medical today announced that it received a Declaration of Compatibility from Philips for its Argos Cardiac Output Monitor to interface with Philips IntelliBridge system on the IntelliVue patient monitoring systems.
The Argos Monitor is now a compatible and “supported device” for Philips IntelliVue Patient Monitoring Systems using the Philips IntelliBridge Interface Module, the IntelliBridge integral Interface Board, or Patient Information Center iX.
“We are pleased to have received confirmation that the Argos is a supported medical device with market-leading Philips IntelliVue Patient Monitoring Systems. This “supported device” designation from Philips will allow more hospitals to have their patients’ Argos-generated data seamlessly transitioned over to the hospital’s Electronic Medical Record (EMR) system,” said Marc Zemel, co-founder and CEO of Retia Medical. “Healthcare organizations look for medical devices that enable data sharing across the healthcare landscape. The Argos monitor is an integral part of the patient care continuum by providing reliable hemodynamic data to guide clinical decision making. Interoperability of the Argos with enterprise patient monitoring systems and electronic medical records (EMR) is essential to achieving the goal of better health outcomes.”
Compatibility with Philips’ IntelliVue and IntelliBridge systems adds to the growing list of Argos’ existing EMR functionality such as Capsule Technologies and Masimo’s EMR middleware. Argos customers now have more pathways to incorporate Argos’ clinical data into the patient’s EMR allowing hospitals to streamline workflows in both their ORs and ICUs.
Specifically, Philips Patient Monitoring Systems IntelliVue MP40-90 and MX400-800 using the Philips IntelliBridge EC10 Interface Module, IntelliBridge EC10 integral Interface Board or Philips IntelliBridge System Release C.0 and Patient Information Center iX using the EC40/80 Hub with Open Interface driver (ED/BD101) and EC5 ID Module #104.
