April 11, 2013 — SunTech Medical’s noninvasive blood pressure products have successfully passed multiple interoperability tests during 2013 Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise (IHE) North American Connectathon (Chicago, Ill.) — part of the company’s strategy to develop medical products that can easily share data with different electronic healthcare management (EMR) systems.

Information exchange between medical devices and patient EMRs is a well-known industry challenge. The IHE Connectathon provides a setting where medical device manufacturers and software vendors can work towards interoperability and test their solutions face-to-face.

SunTech engineers completed interoperability tests with multiple information system providers using IHE’s standards-based profiles, which facilitate information sharing between devices and EMR systems.

SunTech received verification for the following three IHE integration profiles: CT (Consistent Time) system clock and time stamp synchronization, PDQv2 (Patient Demographic Query) population of patient demographic information based on partial or complete patient name, patient ID or date of birth and DEC-1 (Device Enterprise Communication Reporter), which provides consistent communication of vital signs data to the EMR.
