Somnoware, a leading provider of digital health technology, announces the launch of a new plugin that allows sleep centers to automatically connect and initialize all their devices with one click. This new plugin—called Somnoware Sleep Device Interface (SDI)—is a thin-client browser plugin that is quickly installed on first use and then monitors device changes automatically.
With this new plugin, checking patients in and out is an easy, one-click process. Somnoware SDI greatly improves the deployment process, as well as tracking sleep study patients and testing devices. Sleep technologists can directly initialize a testing device by plugging it into their computer, which also checks out the patient.
After the study is complete, this plugin starts to upload the study to the cloud immediately as the device is connected to the computer without any user interaction. The studies automatically upload to the cloud and the device becomes available for use in the inventory for the next patient. Since data is captured directly from each device, potential typing and device selection/assignment errors are minimized. Whenever a misconfiguration occurs, Somnoware SDI prevents the release of a device.
“We are very excited about our new Somnoware SDI plugin. It allows users to quickly initialize devices and download data for physician review. It is very easy to install—taking just a couple of minutes per station to set up,” according to Subath Kamalasan, CEO of Somnoware.
