Room Powered by Integration of Multiple Devices with EMR

Cerner’s "Smart Room" is powered by the CareAware architecture - the integration of multiple devices with the Electronic Medical Record (EMR). The Smart Room is the next generation of "Smart Care," where the patient is the central focus. The Smart Room is the intersection of a variety of innovative technologies, including radio frequency identification (RFID), patient beds, medical bedside device, patient communication, information and entertainment. The Smart Room has an interactive TV system, which combines popular off-the-shelf hardware components and custom-developed applications that provide comprehensive communication, education and entertainment for the patient and their families.

Even with the high demands of a critical care suite, the Smart Room allows care providers to create remote intensive care unit (ICU) access using video/ audio conferencing technology to support quality audio and video images. Two-way communication into each patient's room, along with high-resolution video and audio, provides the remote site with real time "eyes and ears." Cerner's virtual solution allows a physician to monitor multiple patients from multiple hospitals.
