hunova is designed to operate as a standalone device, being able to handle a patient’s process flow from admission to discharge through its frontend and backend software. However, hunova can also be integrated with a hospital’s EMR system using the HL7 protocol, a feature not commonly available in devices of its class. This configuration improves the quality and efficiency of the process and, leveraging the hospital’s centralized records, relieves the therapist from administrative tasks providing more time to focus on the actual delivery of care.
Thanks to HL7 data transmission, a copy of all important data gathered by the device is available almost in real-time for sharing with other systems or healthcare professionals. The data is securely stored in a hospital’s central record system, compliant with HIPAA privacy rules.
This case study will describe the first clinical integration of a robotic rehabilitation device in the USA with the Epic© Electronic Medical Record (EMR) System using the HL7 protocol.
