HOUSTON and JUPITER, Fla., Feb. 14, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Excel Medical (Excel), the
Houston Methodist Hospital, like many hospitals and medical centers today, is confronting challenges related to the capture, retention, utilization and integration of high-value patient data, as well as improving device connectivity. Seeking a solution that would streamline the collection, delivery and accessibility of patient data within its Epic EHR interface, the hospital identified Excel's BedMasterEx technology as having the best functionality for the remit.
Starting with its ICUs and telemetry units, Houston Methodist Hospital is using BedMasterEx to facilitate a shift from the inefficiencies and inherent risks associated with paper cardiac strips and cardiac shift reports that are manually printed and scanned, to electronic digital cardiac reports and digital cardiac rhythm strips that are integrated into, and immediately available within, the hospital's Epic system for clinician review. By eliminating manual printing and scanning of documentation, BedMasterEx creates streamlined workflows, safer patient handoffs and allows improved, more timely clinical decision-making, all of which benefit the hospital, clinicians and patients.
"Excel's BedMasterEx technology is helping us improve patient care and improving patient documentation," said a representative from Houston Methodist Hospital.
Houston Methodist Hospital, the flagship of the Houston Methodist system, is widely recognized to be at the forefront of adopting technological innovations that enhance its clinical operations and patient care. The deployment of Excel's BedMasterEx technology reinforces its reputation for innovation by addressing some of the thorniest technical challenges confronting hospitals and medical centers today, including medical device data integration and device connectivity.
The hospital was recently named by U.S. News & World Report to its annual "Best Hospitals Honor Roll," being selected as one of the nation's top 20 hospitals for the second time (article link: http://bit.ly/2lkQFWE). U.S. News simultaneously named it the No. 1 hospital in Texas for the fifth consecutive year.
"We are excited to work with Houston Methodist," said Lance Burton, General Manager of Excel Medical. "They are widely considered one of the top hospital systems in the country, a standard against which other hospitals are compared especially for innovation, patient safety and overall care. Their deployment of our BedMasterEx technology is just the start of many milestones as our work together continues."
BedMasterEx is part of Excel's comprehensive "Next-Generation Medical Device Integration" solution, which is comprised of four components:
