SUNNYVALE, Calif.—Aug. 26, 2013—Real-Time Innovations (RTI), the real-time infrastructure software company, and DocBox, the medical device informatics and analytics company, today announced a free webinar titled, "How to Architect Smarter Systems for Better Healthcare." Attendees will learn how a data-centric architecture can improve patient healthcare and address the challenges faced when developing smarter point-of-care systems.
According to the Leapfrog Group, hospitals in the U.S. pay a surcharge of $5,900 to $7,800 per admission to cover a wide range of medical errors. Smart point-of-care systems address the source of these errors to help reduce healthcare expenditures while improving patient care. The systems reliably connect and transmit critical data for medical devices, clinicians and patients – ensuring information is shared exactly when and where it's needed most.
Hosted by Sumeet Shendrikar, solutions architect at RTI, and Tracy Rausch, founder and CTO of DocBox, Inc., this webinar will take a deep dive into the challenges faced when addressing data interoperability, safety, security and integration with other systems in today's healthcare environment. Additionally, this webinar will discuss the issues that will affect system and data architecture as data volume grows and becomes increasingly valuable and the use of smart analytics to improve the quality of treatment continues to rise.

RTI provides the messaging backbone for the world's most demanding real-time systems. RTI Connext™ enables applications – running on the smallest devices and the largest enterprise servers – to seamlessly share information and work together as one.
Committed to open standards, open community source and open architecture, RTI provides the leading implementation of the Object Management Group (OMG) Data Distribution Service (DDS) standard.
Our customers are in aerospace and defense, process automation, financial services, energy, automotive, health sciences and transportation. RTI is privately held and headquartered in Sunnyvale, California.
DocBox is developing an innovative clinical process management solution for hospitals that promises to help clinicians eliminate medical mistakes, improve clinical work flow and processes, and free up much of the time spent on administrative duties so that they, and particularly nurses, can focus on providing care.
Health Care is the combination of many systems including people, information systems, medical devices and most importantly the patient. Designing any part of a system without an understanding of how it will be used within the system will cause unintended consequences. Designing safety into the system is key to preventing adverse events and can be done by analyzing processes and work flow and designing in interlocks where mistakes could occur.
