Capsule's Momentum Continues

Leading Medical Device Connectivity Provider Expands Customer Base to Over 670 Hospitals

ANDOVER, MA--(Marketwire - January 25, 2011) - Capsule, the leading provider of medical device connectivity, today announced that they have over 670 facilities across 30 countries now using their solution with over 225 new implementations in 2010 alone. Recent customers include Tampa General Hospital, University of Michigan Health System, and Maricopa Medical Center. 

Hospitals around the world are making medical device integration a top healthcare IT priority because of its measurable benefits to the enterprise including improved direct patient care time, reduced charting errors, and recovered nursing hours. Hospitals are also realizing that its implementation can help meet meaningful use criteria and increase the adoption of CPOE. But, there are several reasons why Capsule continues to be the provider of choice for device integration.

First, Capsule offers a patient-centric, vendor-neutral, Enterprise Device Connectivity Solution that allows hospitals to connect virtually any medical device to any information system in any department hospital. Second, Capsule's solution is completely flexible and scalable and can easily integrate with a hospital's existing infrastructure and clinical workflows. Third, Capsule offers one of the most proven, reliable solutions today with over 14 years of experience and the largest list of connected devices. Finally, Capsule continues to be recognized by customers as providing top notch customer service. Crystal Chretien from Elliot Hospital agrees, "We chose Capsule because their solution gave us more options with older devices and can connect wired or wirelessly to the DataCaptor™ server. And I can't say enough about the customer service, it is the best part."

And, Capsule will continue to be the leading provider in the industry because they are constantly evolving their solution to address the growing connectivity, patient care and safety needs of hospitals. Working with its partners, Capsule's roadmap features solutions that enable an optimized workflow and address the challenges around managing association at the bedside; all designed with the clinician in mind to ensure the delivery of patient-centric care solutions that fit the way the nurse works. "Hospitals are choosing Capsule because they agree with our hospital wide vision to deliver patient-centric solutions that seamlessly integrate all medical devices with their EMR in patient care environment and create prompted workflows for improved patient care and safety across the enterprise," says CEO Arnaud Houette.
