iSirona Validates Interoperability at 2012 IHE Connectathon

Medical Device Integration Leader Accepted Into HIMSS12 Interoperability Showcase

PANAMA CITY, FL--(Marketwire - Feb 6, 2012) - iSirona, a provider of simplified, vendor-neutral software solutions for medical device connectivity, today announced that it passed all required interoperability testing at the IHE 2012 North America Connectathon, held Jan. 9-14 in Chicago. As a result, iSirona solutions will be featured later this month at the exclusive Interoperability Showcase at HIMSS12.

"iSirona is committed to achieving the highest standards of interoperability for our customers," explains iSirona CEO Dave Dyell. "To validate our solutions, we put them up against Connectathon standards. In this year's Connectathon testing event, we successfully connected to a wide variety of devices, including fetal monitors, infusion systems, vital signs monitors and an anesthesia machine."

IHE is a global healthcare integration initiative to promote data exchange among physician practices, hospitals and public health institutions. As the healthcare IT industry's largest interoperability testing event, the 2012 IHE Connectathon provides a structured environment for testing more than 180 HIT systems for interoperability and for compliance with specifications called IHE profiles.

iSirona successfully validated its software-based medical device integration solution, which can be utilized with devices from any manufacturer, as part of the Device Enterprise Communication (DEC) Integration Profile. The IHE DEC Technical Framework defines specific implementations of established standards to achieve integration goals that promote appropriate sharing of medical information to support optimal patient care. Validating conformance with this standard verified that iSirona's DeviceConX software supports the communication of vendor-independent, multi-modality patient data from medical devices to enterprise applications, using consistent semantics.

Following its success at Connectathon, iSirona will demonstrate its IHE-compliant connectivity solution in the Interoperability Showcase at the HIMSS12 Annual Conference to be held Feb. 20-24 in Las Vegas. Attendees will be able to see firsthand how iSirona achieves interoperability with various devices and systems. iSirona also will be showcasing its solution at its company booth, #12414.
