Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, United Kingdom, 2007/10/08 - Cain Medical Ltd and InterSystems Corporation today announced a technology partnership to interface Cain Medical’s CMSense™ technology to the InterSystems Ensemble® integration platform - InterSystems.com.
Cain Medical’s product CMSense enables applications to collect clinical data from bedside medical devices such as patient monitors, ventilators and infusion pumps. The leading database provider in healthcare, InterSystems develops and markets the Caché® high-performance object database and Ensemble rapid integration platform.
The CMSense solution provides a single standardized interface to any device - once an application has integrated the CMSense interface, it becomes compatible with any device it may encounter with no development or software modification. CMSense removes the barrier that has prevented many applications from completing that ‘final mile’ of integrating medical devices into their healthcare solution.
“The desire to collect patient data automatically has never been greater”, said Nicholas Cain, Director of Cain Medical Ltd. “Yet the capability to add a medical device to your healthcare IT infrastructure remains far from simple. There is no standard form of communication with patient monitors being used by device manufacturers. CMSense dramatically changes that, and allows applications to readily collect patient measurements from any medical device. By providing tools for integrating with Caché and Ensemble, we open up the possibility of medical device interfacing to a wide range of healthcare applications using InterSystems’ products today.”
