iSirona White Paper: Medical Device Integration, Nurses Ensure EMR Data Accuracy

Medical device integration and nurse authentication may help reduce data inaccuracies in electronic medical records, according to a white paper (pdf) by iSirona, a medical device integration company.

The white paper, "Flawed Data Chain, Faulty EMR: How to Build a Solid Footing for Patient Data," argued that a medical device integration system that connects a hospital's EMR to all its medical devices can provide healthcare providers with accurate, nearly real-time data. The authors also emphasized that nurses' authentication is necessary to ensure the automated data is correct and associated with the appropriate patient.

iSirona suggested the combination of MDI and nurse authentication can also improve workflow by reducing the amount of time needed to document device data manually and increase the time physicians and nurses can spend delivering direct care to the patient.
