Cerner Connect Tool Gets FDA OK

The Food and Drug Administration has granted 510(k) premarket approval to the CareAware iBus connectivity software of Cerner Corp.

That means the vendor now can market the application to connect medical devices to any electronic health records system to transfer data, including waveforms. The application also supports correlating and trending information, according to the Kansas City, Mo.-based vendor.

Information technology departments also can use iBus to monitor device performance, connectivity status and utilization throughout a facility. More information is available at
