Spacelabs debuts Sentinel 11 with enhanced patient data security and accessibility for cardiologists
SNOQUALMIE, Wash. — May 8, 2019 — Spacelabs Healthcare (the “Company” or “Spacelabs”) debuted Sentinel 11 at the 40th Annual Heart Rhythm Scientific Sessions in San Francisco. This latest release from Spacelabs advances cardiology information management with optimized workflows, expanded connectivity, and robust data security capabilities.
“As healthcare organizations face increasingly sophisticated cybersecurity threats, the need for strong privacy and security control is critical,” said Spacelabs’ President Jim Green. “At the same time, cardiologists need seamless access to patient data collected throughout the care continuum. Sentinel 11 delivers both.”
Spacelabs’ latest cardiology information management system collects data from a broad range of cardiovascular monitoring devices and provides easy access to reports and analyses to aid in diagnosis and care, whether deployed in a small clinic or across a multi-site enterprise environment.
Sentinel 11 provides a high level of security to protect against unauthorized access to clinical data, staff record data, and a patient’s protected health information (PHI). Data is encrypted and protected in transport, on the workstation, in web and data servers, and even in backup files. For additional privacy, Spacelabs ABP (ambulatory blood pressure) and Holter devices can operate and work with the Sentinel system without requiring any PHI to be transferred to the devices.
Cardiovascular care today often employs a variety of non-invasive diagnostic tools in hospitals, clinics, and the home. Because Sentinel 11 supports multiple non-invasive diagnostic cardiology modalities, cardiologists can get a comprehensive view of their patients’ health, whether the data is collected at the patient’s home or in the hospital. Sentinel can be directly integrated with an organization’s electronic medical record (EMR) system, accessed on the go via mobile devices, and serve as a conduit to send recordings to outside services for analysis and reporting. Sentinel’s web-based solutions are designed to meet today’s complex requirements with a simple, unified interface.
