Using 100% digital signal processing to eliminate drift and interference, nSpire Health offers the HDpft 4000 with N2, a high-definition pulmonary function plethysmograph with nitrogen washout testing. iFlow technology provides up to 10 times the accuracy of the previously accepted standard. nSight software simplifies testing processes, shortens procedure times, automates quality assurance, and delivers flexible real-time trending and instant configurable reporting.
For hospital information systems (HIS) and electronic medical records (EMR), nSpire Health offers the HDnet customized interfacing solution. HDnet retrieves ADT and Order HL7 messages into the nSight SQL database. Therapists perform tests as the incoming orders appear, optimizing workflow. Once complete, tests can be moved into a physician’s inbox for review and finalization. Then the test flows back to the medical record software via a fully configurable outbound HL7 results message. HDnet supports most major image formats as well, including PDF and TIFF.
