The FDA cleared Cerner‘s (Kansas CIty, MO) FetaLink+ mobile fetal monitoring app that provides clinicians the ability to check from anywhere maternal and fetal data of patients in the clinic.
The app that’s currently available for iPhones and iPads interfaces with Cerner’s PowerChart Touch and also provides access to patient data like historical charts and test results.
From the announcement:
Cerner FetaLink+allows clinicians to assess the status of patients by displaying the relationship of fetal and maternal waveforms, allowing clinicians to more easily analyze changes in waveform patterns over time. Additionally, clinicians can temporarily or permanently hide or display any waveforms. They can then analyze each waveform independently or in conjunction with waveforms of choice to support decision-making.
Clinicians can quickly view annotations on the fetal strip. The annotation summary offers clinicians a quick way to review a chronological order of vital signs and annotation entries. The summary also serves as a navigation tool for viewing a historical waveform at the correlating time of entry.
