mVisum™ has been a leader in the evolution of mHealth and hospital communications, since the beginning of the mobility revolution. mVisum was one of the first companies to develop viewers for clinical images and physiological waveforms on early Blackberry’s and Windows Mobile devices. mVisum has continued its leadership in clinical mobility by recognizing early that workflow and events trigger the need for data review in hospitals and innovating unique and effective ways to engender workflow and event triggers to mHealth.
mVisum has developed the industry’s first and only integrated event-triggered hospital communication system for clinical data. Meaningful use of mobility requires fundamental integration of mobility as part of current or improved workflows and to facilitate this mVisum has developed path breaking technologies for easily configurable workflow deployments. Key innovations on the mVisum platform to integrate and enable complex workflows and event triggered communications for hospitals include:
• Cross-Platform capabilities
mVisum is the first and only platform currently that offers seamless data viewing and workflow capabilities that span across ALL electronic platforms – from dedicated clients on Android, iOS, Blackberry, and Windows devices to browser based implementations for desktops. mVisum is at the forefront of mixed-design architectures where HTML5 based components provide superior functionality through generalized, easy to support container applications that also provide added security benefits.
• Workflow configurations
mVisum’s technology platform offers a highly configurable workflow solution resident on the server. The mVisum platform supports easy configuration of complex and granular workflows even down to the unit and bed levels. It also supports reliable, closed-loop multi-path escalations and delivery with the patented ability to fine-tune flow based on the source, acuity, and other variables, on either a generalized bed/unit level or on a message-by-message basis. This highly configurable workflow capability allows continuous quality and workflow improvement adaption without disrupting routine operations.
• Native Push
mVisum’s native push capability is fundamental to the safe and effective operation of the mVisum Alert platform. mVisum has developed closed-loop technologies for push delivering notifications to almost any popular mobile platform. The closed-loop capability allows continuous network monitoring of each individual mobile device and provides tight escalation control, strong mechanisms for automated workflows while guarding against risks faced in traditional paging and “fire and forget” messaging models. The platform also provides for failover multi-path push/notification capabilities and provides device behavior control capabilities even superior to state of the art Mobile Device Management systems. mVisum has leveraged this massive technological capability to provide the first and only FDA cleared closed loop alarm notification system that is ISO 60601-1-8 compliant.
• Wifi manager technology
The growing popularity of Android for dedicated nurse hand-held devices has helped evolve mVisum’s Android client for in-hospital use. Common wifi roaming limitations of Android have been overcome by mVisum’s technology. mVisum’s client on Android offers seamless roaming on even non-voice-quality enterprise class wi-fi networks using the mVisum Android wifi manager. mVisum understands wifi at a very fundamental level and the mVisum platform includes the ability to continuously monitor wifi coverage quality and guard against sudden degradation of network quality often seen as unintended consequence of introduction of other technologies on the clinical floor.
• Imaging and image management
mVisum is currently the only platform that provides a single interface for DICOM and non-DICOM imaging while also providing waveform and patient monitoring interfaces using XML, HL-7, and other custom interfaces.
mVisum has been at the leading edge of securing data when distributed over the public mobile phone networks. mVisum’s patented security adds a further layer of security in addition to traditional security processes such as multi-factor authentication, SSL data pipes, etc.
