POC data management

Radiometer Ltd has implemented its AQURE Enterprise point-of-care (POC) data management system at the University of Leicester Hospitals NHS Trust’s new Emergency Department.

It has also supported the trust in configuring the interface of the Sunquest Integrated Clinical Environment (ICE) EPR system, so that blood gas test results are automatically linked to an individual’s EPR. Blood gas tests are ordered via the ICE-EPR system and processed within the Emergency Department on Radiometer’s ABL90 FLEX PLUS blood gas analysers, with results being delivered to the clinician via Sunquest ICE in as little as one minute. 

The almost immediate display of accurate results can have a significant effect on patient outcomes, it is claimed.
