Connectivity

Seamless transfer of blood gas and electrolyte test results from Proxima directly into electronic patient records

The Proxima system outputs all patient sample and QC measurement results in HL7 format via an Ethernet connection for storage in electronic record systems. This ensures the seamless transfer of blood gas and electrolyte test results from Proxima into laboratory information systems (LIS) and electronic patient records (EPR).  This enables POC Coordinators to oversee results and monitor remotely the use and performance of the ex-vivo analyser and hospital staff to see all patient results easily via the Hospital Information System (HIS). For further details of export data formats, please contact Sphere Medical customer support.

Third party interfaces are available for data integration into the following middleware data management applications:
