Creatinine Meters Now Allow Off-Line Entry POC Test Results

August 7, 2008 - A new software enhancement for Nova StatStrip Glucose and StatSensor Creatinine point-of-care monitoring systems allows off-line entry of POC test results for immediate data capture.

With the enhanced NovaNet instrument manager software, operators can use StatStrip touchscreen to manually enter virtually any off-line POC test result, such as pregnancy or urinalysis, and use the meter as a POC communication device to transmit the information to the hospital�s electronic database. The company said the off-line entry capability saves time and labor compared to manually charting the result and then having to enter it later into the database.

The NovaNet open system architecture allows results and reporting to be entirely user configurable. StatStrip and StatSensor meters can be pre-configured so that test results can be entered numerically, via multiple choice, or text. Results are displayed along with normal and abnormal ranges. QC results can be entered as well. Because the meters can be configured by location, the hospital can control which areas or departments can utilize this feature and which tests can be entered. All ADT and positive patient ID features are available for offline entry. A security feature requires operator certification to restrict data entry to authorized users.
