hSp, Healthcare Solution Provider, and Capsule Technologie Announce New Strategic Partnership

Partnership Will Improve Communication and Data Integration of Patient Medical Data Into hSp's MARIS Anesthesia Documentation Solution

OTTWEILER, GERMANY--(Marketwire - August 18, 2010) -  hSp, a division of the Support & Service GmbH, announces a new strategic partnership in the field of medical device data integration with Capsule Technologie, the leading worldwide provider of medical device connectivity. The partnership will allow hospitals in Germany, Austria and Switzerland to acquire, process, manage and deliver patient related data directly into the MARIS anesthesia documentation solution using Capsule's award winning DataCaptor™ connectivity software.

hSp, as a division of Support & Service GmbH, offers solutions to manage the anesthesia process and documentation in a hospital with a specialized focus in mobile IT-solutions. Patient related data of OR medical devices are an essential part of this solution. However, when the documentation of this data isn't automated, clinical staff has to manually collect and enter the data into MARIS, a process which is obviously time consuming and error prone. The partnership with Capsule automates documentation by automatically collecting, processing, translating, managing and delivering patient and device data directly to the MARIS anesthesia system. The overall benefit is improved timeliness and accuracy of patient data across the enterprise and improved patient care. Eric Schnur, chief executive of Support & Service GmbH, confirms the value of the partnership; "cooperating with strong partners, offering inventive ideas and solutions -- is the way which takes innovative companies successfully to future. With the knowledge of Capsule Technologie it is possible to connect MARIS anesthesia directly to every established monitor and anesthesia equipment so we can offer more benefit to our customers."

The partnership between the two companies, however, offers even more value to hospitals than connecting devices to systems and automating documentation; it also enables further collaboration between the two companies to improve the quality and delivery of mobile IT-solutions across the enterprise. Frank Bergs, Capsule's Regional Sales Manager DACH, Eastern Europe and Middle East, confirms the further value the partnership provides, "I'm proud that hSp decided to build a partnership with Capsule for the device data integration in their MARIS anesthesia documentation system. But furthermore we've found with the Support & Service GmbH, a subsidiary of the Waldbreitbacher Franziskanerinnen, a strong and service oriented partner for mobile IT-solutions in and outside the hospital clinic organization. As Capsule gets ready to launch our new Mobile Vitals Plus application, we are excited to work with a partner that has established leadership in the mobile-IT space."
