ANDOVER, Mass., March 12, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Capsule Tech, Inc., the leading global provider of medical device integration solutions, today announced that it will feature its Capsule SmartLinx(TM) Medical Device Information System (MDIS), at the American Organization of Nursing Executives (AONE) Annual Meeting and Exhibition, Orlando, Fla. With a specific focus on patient-centered care, Capsule's SmartLinx enables better use of clinical data in ways that elevate the nurse-patient interaction. In addition to sending accurate data to the patient record, SmartLinx provides real-time surveillance that allows the care team to identify at-risk situations and be alerted to a patient's early deterioration while at the bedside.

Faster Clinical Intervention

SmartLinx integrates a comprehensive suite of real-time connectivity, monitoring, and analytical and surveillance applications and tools that assist clinicians in recognizing the subtle signs of a patient's physiological deterioration. Armed with this information, clinicians are able to take immediate action before the onset of adverse events, or even failure-to-rescue - death. "Capsule understands current nursing workflow and optimizes the process of recording critical patient data in a way that's accurate, succinct and intelligent," explained Sue Niemeier RN, Chief Nursing Officer, Capsule. "By enabling real-time surveillance and useful analysis of patient vital signs and other core data, Capsule can provide the kind of early identification and notification of patient deterioration that has a profound impact on quality of care."

SmartLinx at AONE

The SmartLinx suite of products focuses on the need for front line nurses to be able to readily monitor a patient's condition, be free to closely observe or analyze the patient's state, and quickly act upon it. Capsule will demonstrate several clinically relevant SmartLinx products at AONE that include:

    --  SmartLinx Neuron 2 with Vitals Stream and Secure Association for
        continuous data collection
    --  SmartLinx Neuron 2 with Chart Xpress and Early Warning Scoring System
        for periodic data collection and surveillance
    --  SmartLinx Neuron 2 with Vitals Plus for active monitoring
    --  SmartLinx ESP with Clinical Vigilance(TM) for Sepsis with predictive
        analytics for early sepsis detection

Expanding the Clinical Knowledgebase

As Capsule continues evolving its solutions and delivering exceptional clinical value, it is also investing in developing its clinical expertise. The Company recently doubled the number of experienced registered nurses and is committed to growing its clinical capabilities. The clinical team will play a key role in product design and usability; monitoring the voice of the customer; and will be responsible for collecting informatic trends and leading clinical education. "Capsule thinks the way nurses think. It is the only way to successfully design and implement solutions that will be effectively used by nurses to improve patient care. As Capsule continues to grow, it is our goal to continue to expand our clinical team and knowledge."
