GE Healthcare has teamed with two vendors to enhance the functionality of patient monitors and other medical devices.

The Waukesha, Wis.-based vendor will integrate its Centricity Enterprise, Perinatal and Perioperative electronic health records applications with the DataCaptor and Neuron applications of Andover, Mass.-based Capsule Technologie. Capsule has built an interface library for more than 400 monitors and devices. The integration will enable data from these sources to populate the EHR.

GE Healthcare, with Morrisville, N.C.-based Ascom Wireless Solutions, also will build a wireless, hospital-wide messaging system to send alarms from patient monitors to clinicians' Internet phones, pagers or hand-held devices.
