CliniComp Expands Data Acquisition Offering by Deploying Wireless Capability at Veterans Affairs Heart of Texas Health Care Network
CliniComp’s nano Data Acquisition (nDAS) technology provides seamless wireless device integration, automating data flow into patient records to improve care delivery regardless of a patient’s location.
SAN DIEGO, March 14, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — CliniComp introduces and announces the installation of its wireless data acquisition system, nDAS, for the Veterans Integrated Service Network (VISN) 17, VA Heart of Texas Health Care Network. The nDAS installation expands current data acquisition capabilities by providing caregivers with mobile continuity of ventilator and other medical device integration throughout the hospital.
CliniComp’s wireless data acquisition system eliminates barriers to safe, accurate, and seamless data acquisition by removing environmental and tripping hazards while following the patient throughout their stay.
“By reducing the tripping hazards caused by device cables, the nDAS devices offer a safer environment for patients, their families, and clinicians,” said Claibe Yarbrough, M.D., Chief, Pulmonary and Critical Care, VHA North Texas Health Care System.
Dr. Yarbrough continued, “CliniComp’s nDAS devices provide wireless data acquisition, allowing for automated data to be accessed in the patient’s chart in real time while helping to reduce environmental hazards, improving safety, and increasing ease of ventilator operation.”
“CliniComp has been honored to partner with VISN 17 since 1992, expanding the clinical information system to VA Amarillo in April 2021, including the nDAS in March 2022, and we look forward to our continued relationship with the Veterans Health Administration. We are driven to bring our innovative technology and exemplary customer service that continues delivering quality care to VA Medical Centers across the country,” said Sandra Johnson, Senior Vice President, Client Services.
