Capsule is a leader in medical device connectivity (MDC) –the integration of medical devices with information systems. Hospitalized patients are often hooked to several devices, each of which is generating a large volume of data. At the same time hospitals are increasing adoption of electronic medical record systems and striving to better incorporate –and eventually analyze and act on– clinical data of all kinds.
In this podcast interview, Capsule’s president of North America Stuart Long and I discuss the market for medical device connectivity, how it’s changing with the advent of meaningful use, data security challenges and differences among US and international markets.
