Capsule Webinar Will Address How Device Integration Helps Meet Meaningful Use Criteria Such as CPOE

ANDOVER, MA--(Marketwire - July 13, 2010) -  Capsule, the leading provider of medical device connectivity, announced that they will be hosting a webinar on July 21, 2010 at 1:00pm Eastern Time on a number of issues hospitals are facing in reaching meaningful use criteria outlined in the HITECH provision of the ARRA. Featured in the webinar will be how medical device integration improves patient care and safety and helps meet Phase I, II and III meaningful use criteria including CPOE.

Ann Farrell, Principal at Farrell Associates, and Kevin Phillips, Partner Development Manager at Capsule, will engage in an interactive discussion about medical device integration and meaningful use. They will discuss why it is critical that real time data be available when hospitals are implementing CPOE technology. They will also discuss how medical device integration can affect the entire enterprise and help meet a number of patient care and safety goals and why it therefore should be placed on a hospital's short term priority list.

Key topics that will be discussed include: the real benefits of medical device integration, how device integration can recover nursing hours, how can it improve overall patient care and safety, how it addresses hospitals' key issues surrounding clinical workflow and CPOE, and how device integration can help meet Phases 1, 2 and 3 meaningful use criteria as outlined in the HITECH provision of the ARRA. The speakers are also encouraging participants to submit individual questions prior to the webinar by filling out a form on the registration page. For more information and to register and submit your questions right away click here: https://www1.gotomeeting.com/register/614983312
