Medical device integration software surges in hospitals

InformationWeek, August 16, 2012

According to a new Capsite survey, 44% of the nearly 300 responding hospitals said they had purchased an MDI application in recent years. The majority of those purchases were made in 2011 and 2012. Blain Newton, CEO of Capsite, a research and consulting firm, told InformationWeek Healthcare that the big increase in MDI purchases in those two years is "symptomatic of the surge in EHR purchases and EHR implementation. You have these EHRs that can accept data in, and you have all these devices out there, so the race is on to gather that data as efficiently as possible to improve clinical outcomes." Far more small and midsized hospitals than large institutions bought MDI software in the past two years.
