Nuvon's John Zaleski, Ph.D., CPHIMS, to Discuss Synchronized Data Collection in Acute-Care Environments at AMIA Pre-Symposia
Improving access to quality electronic patient data for clinicians in the Emergency Department (ED), Intensive Care Unit (ICU) and Operating Room (OR) requires the ability to instantaneously integrate information from a wide variety of sources. How this goal can be accomplished will be presented by John Zaleski, Ph.D., CPHIMS, chief technology officer and vice president of clinical applications for Nuvon, Inc. (www.nuvon.com), at the American Medical Informatics Association (AMIA) Pre-Symposia on Sunday, November 4, in Chicago.
As the CTO of Nuvon, the industry-leading patient care data integration solution for EMR device connectivity and interoperability, Dr. Zaleski helps hospitals around the U.S. to integrate the Nuvon System, the only solution that provides real-time synchronized patient data from all devices to provide the holistic clinical view that is especially critical in acute-care situations. The company's system integrates with leading EMR software vendors like Epic, facilitating accurate and complete population of the hospital's EMR as well as other clinical information systems.
Loma Linda University Medical Center recently selected Nuvon for its migration to Epic's electronic medical records system for three critical service units: OR, ICU and the Dialysis Center. Nuvon was also chosen for integration in the ICU at NorthShore University HealthSystem, a HIMSS Analytics Level 7 hospital with a current Epic implementation. Other hospitals utilizing the Nuvon solution for medical connectivity and interoperability in acute-care settings include Cleveland Clinic, Rady Children's Hospital – San Diego, Virtua, Good Shepherd Medical Center, Temple University Health System, and Denver Health and Hospital Authority, among others.
Zaleski commented about the focus of his November 4 AMIA talk and issues around interoperability: “An important first step in the use of clinical information for decision making is the collection and aggregation of data from multiple sources. Patient EMR records contain data from durable medical devices, natural observations, lab reports, imaging and even manual entry – all of which must be collected, aggregated and immediately accessible, especially in the ED, ICU and OR.”
Zaleski will also discuss electronic health record (EHR) systems and the latest tools and methods for data capture and entry in acute-care situations. His presentation will emphasize the need for synchronized information from patient care devices at the bedside and in the EMR. Finally, Zaleski will demonstrate the need for common and standardized methods for data reporting from both patient care devices and EHR systems, which are critical in acute-care environments.
Nuvon, Inc. is dedicated to simplifying the management of critical patient care data, to providing timely medical device data to EMRs and clinical decision support systems in order to improve decision-making and patient safety, and to enabling clinicians to focus on the care of their patients. The Nuvon System's distributed network architecture gives caregivers access to data and devices in any location. Nuvon has an installed base of major institutions, including the Cleveland Clinic, Loma Linda University Medical Center, NorthShore University HealthSystem, Rady Children's Hospital – San Diego and others, that recognize the value of Nuvon's breakthrough approach and cost-effective platform for patient care data capture, integration, and availability in complex healthcare environments. Nuvon's open architecture system provides support for all industry standards. For more information visit Nuvon's website: www.nuvon.com.
