IHSE Draco tera KVM matrix switch helps Wisconsin hospital provide advanced monitoring for critical care of children
Cranbury, New Jersey – Jan 25, 2016-IHSE, a leading developer and manufacturer of advanced KVM systems, today announces the successful installation of a Draco tera KVM matrix switch to help provide centralized patient monitoring in the Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin.
The recently opened Neurosciences Center at the Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin, provides care in one of the most advanced inpatient units for the treatment of childhood epilepsy and other neurodegenerative diseases.
As a key component of the new facility, CHW partnered with BlackRock Neuromed to integrate one of IHSE’s high definition KVM Switching System enabling CHW’s team of doctors, nurses and technicians immediate access to critical monitoring data by simple and non-intimidating keyboard hot key selections.
Based on an 80-port Draco tera compact KVM matrix switch, the system was designed to allow 24/7 monitoring of patient rooms from a central control room and individual patient monitoring from nurse stations using high definition cameras and audio communications. It also support portable monitoring systems that can be quickly setup and controlled remotely from the central control room.
The primary challenge was to design a fully integrated high definition video monitoring system that was sophisticated enough to provide doctors and nurses the tools needed to provide the best patient care possible while making sure that the technology complied with HIPAA and did not interfere or distract them from their primary goals.
“The IHSE system installed by Blackrock Neuromed solved our system requirements perfectly” said Dan Collins, Clinical Engineer for CHW. “Our staff is able to view and control our monitoring system and cameras remotely. Blackrock seemed to have many options to control network load and to display images on the many displays that we have in the control room.”
