Software, Physiologic Monitoring, Acute Care
Definition : Physiologic monitoring software designed to operate acute care monitoring systems, control/monitor a limited number of their functions, and/or process data obtained while monitoring. This software is usually installed in a central station or dedicated workstation, acting as an interface between the central station and bedside or telemetric monitors; it may also perform a variety of algorithms to facilitate the operation and analysis of the measurements performed while monitoring. Acute care monitoring software is intended to work only with one or a few models of acute care monitoring systems, usually from the same manufacturer, also facilitating the processing and/or sending data from the acute care monitoring system and a hospital information system. The software is not usually available separate from the monitoring system but may be updated (i.e., through the release of modified versions) during the life of the equipment.
