High volumes of data and alarms pose risks in OR.

In a hectic, ever-changing OR environment, timely, accurate medical devices are essential to track and trend patient status. In recent years, the number and complexity of devices have increased, resulting in a higher volume of data, alarms, and alerts that can both guide and potentially threaten patient safety. Individual device alarms and data that are siloed between multiple systems or screens make it difficult to detect  changes and patient deterioration. And the stakes could not be higher, as rapid decisions in the OR can have significant postoperative repercussions for patients and the total cost of care.

Volume of data and alarms creating distraction and risk.

  • The volume of data generated can create information overload for OR teams
  • Data is siloed and there is a delay to access
  • Alarms compete for attention, giving rise to “alarm fatigue”
  • Small variations in the OR can have significant postoperative impact

A new level of visibility and timeliness.

  • Important data becomes more visible and timely, helping inform better care decisions
  • Contextualized data makes information more actionable
  • Increased data accuracy also aids decision-making and documentation
  • Reduce latency of data capture means data is available when it is needed
  • Improve data access across care boundaries, allowing care teams to work from the latest information

Intelligence at a glance.

Capsule helps OR teams capture and navigate large amounts of streaming and historical data by capturing, aggregating and contextualizing all available information, then securely integrating it into other systems and providing predictive insights. Our flexible connectivity hubs  integrate virtually all medical device data from the OR into one scalable platform. Our system has the ability to tailor the elements and frequency of data sent to multiple systems, including alarm management.
