ANDOVER, MA--(Marketwire - Sep 28, 2011) - Capsule, the leading provider of medical device connectivity, today announced that more than 760 facilities are now benefiting from its industry-leading solution. The company added over 90 new customers in the last six months alone, making its install base nearly 50-times greater than any other independent device integration provider.

As the only ranked medical device integration vendor, Capsule also secured a record-high KLAS score of 90.1 percent based on its standout technology and customer service. Such growth and commitment to customer satisfaction has led Capsule to experiencing record employee growth in 2011, increasing its staff by 20 percent, with plans to further grow by up to 50 percent in 2012.

Capsule's patient-centric, vendor-neutral Enterprise Device Connectivity Solution continues to provide benefits to all hospital stakeholders by recovering nursing hours, improving direct patient care time, reducing charting errors and increasing the adoption of the EMR and Computerized Physician Order Entry (CPOE). Furthermore, through Capsule's implementations, hospitals are able to achieve short and long-term Meaningful Use criteria necessary to securing funds from The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA).

Capsule's implementations spread across 30 countries and represent solutions installed across the entire hospital enterprise from virtually every class of medical device to every information system. In fact, Capsule has delivered proven connectivity to virtually every type of information system on the market including, but not limited to, Epic, Allscripts, MEDITECH, McKesson, GE, Philips, Drager, Nexus, Meiherhoffer, HMS, Surgical Information Systems, Docusys and Visicu. This proven experience provides hospitals with the assurance of knowing Capsule can handle all their connectivity needs in all care areas across the enterprise.

"A large part of Capsule's success can be attributed to the high adoption rate of the Capsule Neuron™ bedside platform," said Brian McAlpine, Director of Strategic Products at Capsule. "Hospitals are realizing the value of a dedicated connectivity platform that provides data caching, medical grade protection and centralized management that can improve patient care and workflow for caregivers. As a result, we have witnessed unprecedented growth in a space where we are the clear leader, enabling us to rapidly add to our employee base and expand the number of devices and partners we work with."

"Everyone talks about nursing workflow but who really knows the workflow -- nurses. Capsule is dedicated to creating solutions that fit the way a nurse works today and the way they will be working tomorrow," says Susan Neimeier, CNO and Clinical Product Manager at Capsule. "Collaboration between the IT and clinical teams at a hospital is essential when making decisions about any technology, including device integration. We understand these questions and we work with our customers, our partners and our advisors to ensure that we develop solutions that leverage existing and planned investments that fit the way the nurse works."
