Perle keeps your fingers on the pulse
Acquiring, storing, and processing information about patients is the key to effective healthcare. Doctors, clinics, hospitals, and laboratories all need to have better access to up-to-date information.
Making sure the right information is available on the network from the moment of capture is the key. Much data is generated by patient monitoring or treatment equipment such as heart monitors, blood analysers, and ventilators. As this medical equipment grows ever more sophisticated, the demand for real-time data increases too.
By making such information available across the network, it can be easily shared from the bedside to the laboratory. Today's health services are striving for maximum efficiency at minimum cost and the right information can help determine the most cost-effective treatment.
Perle technology helps put data at the heart of the healthcare industry. Any device with serial connections can now be networked and managed remotely - even across the internet. Complex patient monitoring devices may now be interfaced to a single network connection.
Engineers and Project Managers that require a cost effective serial RS232-to-Ethernet solution that is certified for the IEC 60601-1 medical safety standard must consider the IOLAN MDC Terminal Server.
Challenge: Improve efficiencies by monitoring the fluid levels in remote autoclaves.
Solution: By installing a remote device server with serial and with integrated analog input capabilities, a remote application can over an IP network, remotely monitor the voltage level information provided by the fluid sensors in the autoclave.
Benefit:Technicians at a central location can securely manage the autoclave through its serial console port.
Challenge: Providing a cost effective solution to interface the Badger neo-natal monitoring system with hospital monitoring devices.
Solution: Integrate Perle Serial Cards into the total solution.
Benefit: Real-time reporting of neo-natal monitoring equipment to nurses stations from intensive care units.
Challenge: Integrate blood analysis results with a new Laboratory Information Management System.(LIMS)
Solution: Utilize Perle 1Port Device Servers ( DS1) to connect the blood analizers to the network.
Benefit: The compact form factor allows for a terminal server to be connected to each blood analyzer allowing for assured uptime, network redundancy, easy integration and future scalability.
Challenge: Transmit real-time information from bedside monitoring devices to hospital nursing stations
Solution: Use Perle Serial Cards to interface the central system with hospital monitoring devices.
Benefit: By relaying information to a central server application, data can be converted automatically into recognizable graphs, charts and figures.
OSM Helps Hospitals Distribute
Label Data Quickly and Reliably
Challenge: Collect data from blood analyzers and heart rate stabilizers and quickly rout that data to the correct doctors and wards.
Solution: Correlate lab data received from the blood analyzers with the patient's data via barcode scanners and label printers that are connected to the network via Perle Terminal Servers.
Benefit: Providing the correct data at the right time is critical to allow the doctors to start effective life saving measures.
