The CARESCAPE* Network is an Ethernet-based network that connects GE patient monitoring equipment and servers together. It handles real-time, life-critical patient data, as well as enterprise data to deliver comprehensive networking functionality to hospitals.
With the CARESCAPE Network and the proper products attached to it, customers can:
Centrally monitor: Networking allows nurses or monitoring techs to monitor patients from a central location on that floor within the hospital or across the city
Bed-to-Bed viewing: With a network, a nurse at one patient monitor can view the status of a patient admitted to another monitor on the network
Share data: Data transferred through the network can have a number of destinations for other uses including populating an EMR via HL7*, wirelessly sending waveform data to a Tablet PC or cell phone, and automatically sending 12-Leads to a MUSE* system for immediate analysis.
