Our philosophy in meeting our customers’ needs is to do what we do best – patient monitoring – and partner with others who have complementary capabilities and technologies to provide the best overall solution for your hospital. Hence we have a number of interfaces that link our monitor data to best-of-class software solutions in use by your hospital. Many of these are components of our ICS G2 applications suite. We also work with the organizations that create and enforce standards, such as HL7, to assure that our systems can implement any standards and work seamlessly with other devices.

- The Vital Signs Interface seamlessly links patient monitors to the Clinical Information System via a single scalable HL7 interface. Patient’s vital signs data are automatically transferred, eliminating the need for nurses to enter data manually into a patients’ chart. Charting is fast, complete, accurate, and comprehensive, incorporating Flexport data from peripheral devices as well.
- The ADT Interface collects admission, discharge and transfer information via the hospital network and stores it in a centralized database. This enables you to automatically populate current patient information in the monitor, saving time and reducing the potential for errors in data entry. Patient administrative data is readily available, without searching in other systems.
- The Clinical Event Interface provides the basis for a hospital’s secondary alarm notification system. Event data is instantaneously communicated from the bedside monitor to the messaging and notification software for delivery to personal communication devices. ECG waveforms as well as alarm messages may be transmitted (depending on the features of the end device). It works with systems such as Ascom, Amcom (formerly Commtech), Emergin and Globestar.
- The 12-Lead Interface enables you to export diagnostic ECG reports from a Spacelabs bedside monitor to an ECG management system – eliminating the need for an ECG cart and technician. The interface delivers reports through a single link to your ECG management system in the format required by that system. It works with all major ECG management systems, such as GE Muse or Phillips Tracemaster.
