Asante Health System Selects iSirona to Achieve Device Connectivity(March 28, 2012)
PANAMA CITY, FL -- (Marketwire) -- 03/28/12 -- iSirona®, the leading provider of simplified solutions for medical device integration, today announced that Asante Health System of Medford, Oregon, will be implementing iSirona's device connectivity solution at Three Rivers Community Hospital and Rogue Valley Medical Center. Asante will roll out iSirona's software solution across the Asante Health System, beginning by connecting patient monitors and ventilators, to automate the flow of patient data directly into its Epic EMR.
Because the iSirona solution works within the Epic EMR, Asante's clinicians will gain the ability to access accurate and timely patient data without significantly changing their current workflow. In addition, Asante will be able to leverage its existing technology investments thanks to iSirona's software-based solution, which eliminates the need to purchase additional, single-use hardware.
"One of our main concerns was making device connectivity easy for our clinicians," says Mark Hetz, CIO at Asante. "The beauty of iSirona's software solution is how easily the software approach works within Epic's clinical workflow. That means our clinicians can spend more time focusing on patients instead of figuring out new device connectivity technology. Additionally, iSirona's technology was an easy choice given the number of IT projects we have on the horizon."
