GE Healthcare to Use RTI Connext Middleware as Industrial Internet Transport for Medical Systems

RTI Connext Platform Allows Standardization on Common Platform Across Product Lines

SUNNYVALE, CA--(Marketwired - Aug 14, 2014) -  Real-Time Innovations (RTI), the Industrial Internet of Things communications platform company, today announced that GE Healthcare intends to use RTI's Connext™ Platform as the core communication for new generations of several products. The RTI Connext Platform allows unprecedented connectivity, enabling smarter systems of connected medical devices in hospitals as well as fast integration and connectivity of large medical instruments.

"GE Healthcare chose the DDS standard because it can handle many classes of intelligent machines," said J Gustavo Perez, General Manager for MI&CT Engineering at GE. "RTI Connext DDS satisfies the demanding requirements of our devices and supports standardization on a single communications platform across product lines."

"RTI's technology performs as the nervous system for many of GE Healthcare's devices," said Stan Schneider, CEO at RTI. "With RTI Connext DDS and Connext Micro DDS, GE engineers are building a more connected patient care ecosystem with the goal to allow efficient machine operation and less expensive configuration."

By networking the many types of devices in a hospital room, alarms can become smart, only sounding when multiple devices indicate errant physiological parameters. By connecting measurements to treatment, smart drug delivery systems can react to patient conditions fast and reliably. By tracking patients around the hospital and connecting them to cloud resources, efficiency of care can be dramatically improved.
