Masimo announced a partnership with Imprivata®, the digital identity company for healthcare, to integrate Imprivata Medical Device Access – streamlined, secure authentication to medical devices for clinical users – into Masimo’s Hospital Automation solutions, featuring the Root® Patient Monitoring and Connectivity Platform and Iris Gateway®.
With the addition of Imprivata Medical Device Access to Masimo Root and Iris Gateway, hospitals gain access to an even more powerful patient monitoring and hospital automation solution designed to improve clinical workflows and efficiency in numerous ways. By allowing clinicians to instantaneously log on securely to medical devices, the enhanced solution will help them spend more time caring for patients without compromising the security of sensitive patient information.
“We are excited to work toward bringing Imprivata’s authentication technology to Masimo customers, to enhance their experience with our monitoring and automation solutions and to help them stay focused on improving patient outcomes. Our Root and Iris® platforms are designed to aggregate and automate the transfer of patient data as seamlessly as possible, to make sure clinicians have the most relevant, most timely information at their fingertips at all times,” stated Bilal Muhsin, Chief Operating Officer, Masimo.
“In today’s complex Internet of Medical Things, healthcare organizations are faced with the challenge of protecting the security and integrity of the information stored on and transmitted through medical devices without impeding clinical productivity,” said Wes Wright, Chief Technology Officer at Imprivata. “By partnering with Masimo, we’re pleased to give our joint customers the ability to implement and enforce the security of sensitive information captured on Root and Iris platforms, without affecting clinical workflows.”
Masimo Root is a powerful, expandable patient monitoring and connectivity hub that integrates an array of technologies, devices, and systems to provide multimodal monitoring and connectivity solutions in a single, clinician-centric platform. Root’s plug-and-play expansion capabilities allow clinicians to centralize patient monitoring by bringing together advanced rainbow SET® parameters, brain function monitoring, regional oximetry, capnography, and vital signs measurements on an easy-to-interpret, customizable display, empowering clinicians with more information for making patient assessments.
Iris Gateway is a component of Masimo’s Hospital Automation solution that provides third-party device integration and automates the transfer of data from medical devices into Electronic Medical Records (EMRs) to help improve productivity and reduce the likelihood of transcription errors.
