Inova Health System Implements Excel Medical’s BedMasterEx Solution

Excel Medical has announced that Inova Health System has implemented Excel Medical’s BedMasterEx solution to integrate with Inova’s Epic EHR to optimize cardiac monitoring and improve patient safety across the health system. This is part of an ongoing rollout of the platform, which will ultimately span all five Inova hospitals, representing more than 825 monitored beds.

Like many hospitals and medical centers, Inova was facing a multitude of challenges related to effective capture, retention, utilization, and communication of high-value patient data. Inova identified the need for a solution that would integrate bedside monitoring data from telemetry and ICU areas into its EHR. BedMasterEx turned out to be the solution that provided this functionality.

The BedMasterEx solution is fully secure, HIPAA-compliant and can be deployed on Windows workstation or within client technologies such as Citrix for remote access and management. The platform provides the means for Inova to continue to achieve its goal to “Build a Culture of Safety.” Toward that end, Excel Medical’s software integration with Epic ensures that the right strip is matched to the right patient by eliminating the manual steps for data collection. Electronic maintenance of the cardiac waveforms also means that nurses and clinicians can view patient data throughout the hospital enterprise from available workstations, including computers-on-wheels.
