Software, Workstation Management, Hemodialysis
Definition : Software designed to operate hemodialysis treatment workstations, control/monitor a limited number of their functions, and/or process data obtained during the hemodialysis procedure. This software usually interacts with devices used in the procedure, such as hemodialysis machines, measuring instruments, and recorders. It may also perform a variety of algorithms to facilitate the operation of the hemodialysis machine and process patient and treatment data, send treatment parameters to the hemodialysis machines, and provide complete patient prescription and treatment. Hemodialysis treatment workstation management software is intended to work only with one or a few models of workstations and related devices, usually supplied by the same manufacturer. This facilitates the processing and/or sending of data from the workstation to and from other hospital information systems. The software is not usually available separate from the hemodialysis workstation but may be updated (i.e., through the release of modified versions) during the life of the equipment.
