Protocol Management Tool again
recognized for innovation,
nominated for Edison Award
PeriGen announced today that their protocol management tool, PeriCALM CheckList, has been nominated for a 2017 Edison Award. The Edison Awards recognize and honor innovation and innovators who make a positive impact in the world.
The Edison Awards are named after Thomas Alva Edison (1847-1931) who developed 1,093 patented new products, including the incandescent electric light and the system we still use today to generate electrical power. His other products include the telephone transmitter, the phonograph, the first storage battery, and a motion-picture camera.
Edison Awards nominees are evaluated not only on their impact, but also the method of conceptualization, product value (advantages and differentiation), and marketing delivery.
PeriCALM CheckList, a module of the PeriCALM electronic fetal monitoring and analytics software solution, is designed to help bedside perinatal clinicians identify when patient EFM metrics match specific protocol parameters. Although it is highly customizable, it is most often used by hospital clients to monitor oxytocin protocols. The automation of protocol management that CheckList offers aims to save labor & delivery providers time by eliminating manual calculations and improve data accuracy. Published research on obstetric protocols, in addition, have been shown to improve outcomes and lower cesarean section rates.
The module also includes a unique export feature, saving additional time by sending EFM data to the EHR and to annotations after review.
