Capsule Technologie has released DataCaptor Version 2.0, a data acquisition software for medical information systems. DataCaptor makes use of ActiveX and MS Distributed Component Object Module to recuperate data in real time from medical devices and integrate it seamlessly into Windows-based compatible applications.
The new software integrates four major enhancements, including simplified device configuration; network support across domains; waveform support; and a 30-day evaluation period. Once the software is integrated into any Windows-based software application, the medical and laboratory device configuration is quick and easy, with such features as automatic detection of communication type and warning of configuration conflicts.
Users can view device data in real time from any point on the network, even across domains and the Internet. All parameter data, including waveforms, are collected from such devices as patient monitors, infusion pumps as well as respirators, and can be integrated and stored into clinical or laboratory applications. Users may download and evaluate DataCaptor free for 30 days with access to interfaces for any device in Capsule Technologie's library.
DataCaptor has been designed to provide health care institutions plug-and-play connectivity to an unlimited number of devices. As a uniquely software solution, DataCaptor allows clinical applications to collect device data at the patient bedside, requiring only a cable from the device to the COM port on a computer.
Capsule Technologie Company was created in 1997 and is actively involved in the Microsoft Health care Users Group to promote interoperability in the health care institutions. The company is an expert in device connectivity. The DataCaptor product assists Clinical Information Systems, Laboratory Information Systems and medical device manufacturers to send and collect real time data in a critical care or laboratory environment.
