Welch Allyn Provides Connectivity Between ECG and EMR

Electronic vital signs documentation results in more immediate and accurate patient data, improved workflow

Connex Vital Signs Monitor

May 30, 2013 — Welch Allyn has been working with Epic to connect several of its vital signs devices, monitors and electrocardiograph (ECG) units to Epic’s electronic medical records (EMR) system to help eliminate the need for manual data entry by providers, increase efficiency and alleviate the risk of transcription and latency errors.  By establishing connectivity between Welch Allyn devices and the EMR, clinicians are able to transfer patient test results directly between diagnostic devices and the EMR — resulting in immediate access to accurate patient data and improved workflow.

“With immediate access to patient data, clinicians are able to make better informed, faster decisions on the care plans of their patients,” said Garrison Gomez, director of integrated devices at Welch Allyn.  “The ability to assess changes in patients’ conditions and have access to current patient data from anywhere on the health IT network helps improve overall patient care.  By developing connectivity between Welch Allyn devices and EMR systems such as Epic, we can help facilities meet the needs of the clinicians and their patients in a very efficient way.”

The Welch Allyn family of Epic-connected vital signs devices include:

  • Vital Signs Monitor 300 Series
  • Spot Vital Signs Device
  • Spot Vital Signs LXi Device
  • Connex Vital Signs Monitor 6000 Series
  • Connex Integrated Wall System
  • Connex ProBP 3400 Digital Blood Pressure Device

The company’s full line of connected cardiopulmonary devices includes:

  • CardioPerfect Workstation Software and Data Management System
  • PC-Based Resting ECG
  • PC-Based Exercise ECG
  • PC-Based SpiroPerfect Spirometer
  • PC-Based Ambulatory Blood Pressure Monitor (ABPM)
