November 2, 2007 - Masimo said today Community Health Network of Indianapolis completed a system-wide implementation of the Masimo SET pulse oximetry for continuous SpO2 monitoring.
“The decision to convert our entire network to Masimo SET technology was an easy one,” said Steve Erdosy, M.D., biomed clinical engineer at Community Health Network. “The superior clinical performance we experienced with Masimo SET pulse oximetry in The Indiana Heart Hospital, which converted in 2003, prompted the need to have this advanced technology available in all our sites.”
Ranked among the top 20 integrated health care networks in the nation, Community Health Network has more than 70 sites of care throughout central Indiana. This includes Community Hospitals East, North and South in Indianapolis and Community Hospital Anderson; The Indiana Heart Hospital; Indiana Surgery Centers; Community Physicians of Indiana; Community Home Health Services; MedCheck urgent care centers; occupational health services; nursing homes; and other health care facilities.
Jan Nellinger, new technology analyst at Community Health Network, said Masimo’s seamless conversion was an added benefit.
