Connectivity Engine to Be Used with Drug-Delivery Software

Two companies have signed an agreement whereby medical device connectivity software will be used with a system that provides point-of-care documentation for manual drug delivery performed in the operating room.

Capsule Technologie (Paris; makes the DataCaptor, a connectivity engine that collects data from medical devices and sends it to a host clinical information system. The product allows clinical information systems providers to integrate legacy device data directly into their applications, creating a complete and accurate patient chart in an acute-care environment.

The system from DocuSys (Mobile, AL; digitizes drug-delivery data without clinician input, offers a real-time baseline for outcomes analysis, and establishes a closed-loop narcotic audit trail. By integrating the DataCaptor software, the system can display and archive data from more than 140 devices in the system's device interface library.

Providence Hospital (Mobile, AL) is currently using the integrated system to provide a complete anesthesia record in general operating rooms.

"DataCaptor is a key component of the DocuSys system," says Robert Evans, MD, cofounder of DocuSys and inventor of the system. "Capsule Technologie has provided an easy and efficient solution for anesthesiologists to monitor patient data on a single screen rather than multiple displays."
