Enovacom sticks by its clients to face the Coronavirus pandemic head on
To meet the challenges of our clients during the Coronavirus pandemic, Enovacom has doubled its efforts to support them in their need to increase healthcare capacities. As such, the ENOVACOM Patient Connect biomedical interoperability solution has been extended to new care units. These projects, with the support of the healthcare providers’ IT, biomedical and care teams, are part of the creation of additional, highly medicalised intensive care beds for patients with COVID-19 who are experiencing respiratory distress.
Successful capacity extensions at the Adolphe de Rothschild Hospital Foundation and the Chalon-sur-Saône Hospital
The Adolphe de Rothschild Hospital Foundation in Paris (FOR) and the Chalon-sur-Saône Hospital have recently approached us in recent weeks to expand the scope of the already operational ENOVACOM Patient Connect biomedical software interoperability solution with new devices, to strengthen the provision of their healthcare services.
Changing the initial scope helped the Rothschild Hospital Foundation go from 10 to 39 resuscitation beds. The hospital was transformed on 3 care units (the ‘post-operation recovery room’, the continuous health unit and the inter-speciality wing) with SAVINA ventilators in the continuous health unit and PRIMUS ventilators in the ‘post-operation recovery room’. This was made possible thanks to our project team’s close collaboration with the IT, biomedical and clinical teams at the healthcare organisations.
For its part, the Chalon-sur-Saône Hospital has managed to create 5 new resuscitation rooms, each of which has a ventilator, a multiparameter monitor and infusion and dialysis machines.
The process of connecting biomedical devices
With the support of IT personnel, biomedical teams moved, installed and connected to the network the various medical devices surrounding the patients: ventilators, multiparameter monitors, infusion pumps, syringe pumps and dialysis machines.
Enovacom project teams then configured modifications of the ENOVACOM Patient Connect solution. We worked to facilitate the standardised collection and integration process (HL7, IHE Profiles) of the data these devices produce in the electronic patient records (EPRs) and ensure identity vigilance, i.e. all the data for the right patient was being uploaded automatically to the right place. This data includes physiological parameters, vital signs, technical parameters of the devices and any alerts or alarms (as these feed into a mobile patient monitoring solution).
The solution’s extension was implemented quickly to best respond to patient care.
The immediate benefits of connecting biomedical devices
ENOVACOM Patient Connect allows:
- Physicians to be spared from time-consuming administrative tasks such as manually inputting vital signs information so that they can spend more time treating patients – something far from trivial in times of crisis
- Doctors to make quick and informed medical decisions thanks to accurate and up to date EPRs
