iSirona, a provider of simplified solutions for medical device integration, today announced Gundersen Health System has chosen iSirona’s device connectivity solution to accompany its installation of Epic OpTime. A recipient of the 2013 Healthgrades Distinguished Hospital Award for Clinic Excellence for the sixth consecutive year, Gundersen Health System will also depend on iSirona’s device connectivity software to provide integration in its critical care unit for ventilators and other ancillary equipment.

“iSirona was able to demonstrate that they could meet our needs in a cost-effective and high-quality manner,” says Ryan Motl, Gundersen Health System’s manager of IS clinical engineering. “Their experience partnering with Epic, the focus on implementation process and continued support, the wide variety of devices in their integration library, and the flexibility allowed with the software-based solution were all contributing factors in our purchase decision.”

Like many healthcare facilities, Gundersen Health is continually investing in technology to reduce the amount of time and effort spent on documentation into its EMR. “We are striving to provide a more seamless data environment for our caregivers,” adds Motl. “With this improved environment, we look to realize cost savings and improve our patient experience.”
