Automated interface improves device safety records

Rigel Medical : 08 June, 2015  (New Product)
Rigel analysers now share advanced interface with EQ2 clinical equipment management system for medical device safety record handling
Automated interface improves device safety records


A new approach to medical device testing in hospitals is available following the launch of an advanced interface developed by Rigel Medical and EQ2.



The move sees the Rigel Medical 288 safety analyser integrated with EQ2’s clinical equipment management system HEMS to provide a fully automated, highly accurate and easily portable system for capturing and documenting medical device safety records.



A new module has been incorporated into EQ2’s HEMS Enterprise software to make it fully compatible with the automated Rigel analyser.



This module  - the EQ2 Rigel SA Interface - enables the biomed engineer to harness the 288’s full capabilities to capture valuable information at the point of testing in a hospital or healthcare centre before sending the data automatically to the HEMS system to complete safety checks and link to the medical device’s inventory, test library and performance history.



John Backes, Associate Director at Rigel Medical, said the international and domestic hospital markets are key areas of growth and we have partnered with EQ2 to provide an advanced testing solution for this sector.



He added: “EQ2 has simplified the user interface experience while delivering accurate and robust interoperability with the Rigel 288 was a key to our interest in EQ2.



“EQ2 has delivered on their vision with the release of this simple, intuitive interface to our Rigel 288 - a perfect complement to our great safety analysers.”



EQ2 is the first Rigel authorised provider of automated CMMS – Rigel interfaces.   Vishal Malhotra, EQ2 Director of Development, said: “With this first release, EQ2 and Rigel prove that complex interoperability can be accomplished through good system design to be stunningly simple for the customer to use.”



The Rigel 288 features a compact Bluetooth barcode scanner, enabling devices and equipment to be quickly and easily identified, while test results can be stored internally and printed wirelessly to a small battery operated printer. Users also have the facility to select from a range of pre-set test programs or develop their own customised routines.
