POC Devices Interface to OpenEMR


(Dennis Lottero) #1

I am interested in having multiple POC devices interfaced to OpenEMR to allow the devices to send test results, once approved, directly into a patients record. Some of the devices I need to interface include:
Tensiometer
Pulse-oxymeter
Thermometer
Digital Stethoscope
Video Otoscope
Video Dermatoscope
Electrocardiogram
Rapid Test Reader
Weighing scale
Glucometer
Spirometer
Laringoscope

I would appreciate if someone could point me to a know solution.

All of the devices you mention would have to be developed. There are not any premade tech to connect all of these devices to the program.

Hello Sherwin – thanks for your response. I am more specifically looking to interface such POC devices through an App running on a tablet and then updating the patient record from the App. Given
the proliferation of POC healthcare devices, it seems strange that no one has interfaced a POC device to OpenEMR at this point.

Perhaps ordering tests through the Lab module and having the POC devices seen as a clinical lab analyzer might be a way to approach this task. Any thoughts on that approach?

Best regards,

Dennis
