EMR Integration Experience I have worked on a number of EMR integration projects: Embedding 12 lead ECGs into VA VistA CPRS, Allscripts, Epic, Cerner Embedding device parameter data: SPO2, NIBP from Dinamaps into Meditech Magic Embedding live waveforms into Cerner, Epic Integrating live waveforms into Epic Haiku, Canto Embedding an entire DICOM ECG Management system into Cerner via API: “Powerchart ECG” (video link) Embedding ECG and alarm strips into Epic via IBM PODS PDF repository
Patient Monitoring System Data Warehouse The project specifications for this system was essentially to used as a “black-box” that can acquire XML data in snippets from a patient monitoring system in an XML stream, cache it, and populated a SQL database so that conventional BI tools could be used against the data, which included all monitored waveforms: ECG/SPO2/RR/Invasive pressures. The system also received all parameter data: example, HR, SPO2 values, ST segment amplitude and slope
MMLPMS is a portable ICU Monitoring System that is the size of a mobile phone. It can nest against an iPhone or Android and with four integral ECG electrodes and a plug for one addition precordial or V lead, the system can acquire up to seven ECG leads: Lead I, II, II, augmented leads aVR, aVL, and aVF and with an optional multi-lead plug, can acquire up to 12 leads of ECG, just like an ICU monitor.
This project was to build a hemodynamic patient monitor similar to the Schiller PB1000 which is what Merge/Camtronics used as their patient monitor front end. Basically it is a patient monitor that acquired all vital signs, waveforms and parameters: 12 lead ECG, 4 invasive pressures, 2 temps, SPO2, and EtCO2, just like a standard patient monitor. What was unusual about this project is that the requirement was to use open source hardware. This meant that we could just
In my past, I have worked with a number of physiological acquisition devices, but was proud to be a part of the team that created the worlds first portable DICOM compatible ECG machine. Not only was it wifi enabled, it had a sophisticated radio modem module that provided enterprise-level security in the form of (light) Extensible Authorization Protocol, or (L)EAP. At the time, all of the competitive ECG machines were using WEP, a simplistic wireless
