DatamedFT™ for ECG (EKG)

Bridging the compatibility gap between devices from various manufacturers. DatamedFT™ converts the ECG data from the format of one manufacturer to the format of another allowing institutions purchasing flexibility and extending equipment life. Essentially using the DatamedFT allows you to be vendor neutral when it comes to storing ECGs.
DatamedFT receives ECG data from the source ECG device, bedside monitor, or other acquisition device as data files in native format. Each ECG file contains the waveform data along with patient demographics, measurements, and analysis statements. The file is translated from the source format to the target format. The resulting file is then sent to the ECG Management System.


Combined with the DatamedFT™ format translator DatamedWL™ gives ability to query for orders, record the ECGs, and then send them to the storage system to close out the orders. This fully integrated workflow is an important part of a vendor neutral solution. DatamedWL™ is a two-way system that acts as the native management system for the source devices, and as a native source device for the management systems.
Each side of the communications utilises an interactive communication. In some cases (including DICOM® hosts) context items will be cached locally so that they can be used when interacting with the host, even though the actual source device does not support the data. This results in tremendous capability for future interfaces.

DatamedRcv™ ECG Receiver Modules

DatamedRcv™ Module DRCV01

For GE® / Marquette® cardiographs and ZOLL® defibrillators

DatamedRcv™ Module DRCV01 is a Receiver Module runs as a system service and will monitor one or more serial ports and/or a TCP/IP port for connections from cardiographs and monitors that transmit using the CSI protocol. These devices typically either do not have an alternative method for transmitting the ECGs or it is difficult to accomplish. Once an ECG transmission is received, a file is written which the DatamedFT™ service will translate to the appropriate destination format.

DatamedRcv™ Model DRCV01 is produced by Datamed LLC. and is not endorsed, approved, sponsored, or affiliated with GE Medical Systems Information Technologies, Inc.

DatamedRcv™ Module DRCV02

For Philips® PageWriter® Touch/Trim/TC cardiographs & IntelliVue® monitors

DatamedRcv™ Module DRCV02 runs as a dedicated TCP/IP listener service and will monitor a TCP/IP port for incoming connections from Philips® PageWriter® Touch, PageWriter® Trim and PageWriter® TC cardiographs, as well as Philips®IntelliVue® monitors when using the new PIIC iX. Once an ECG transmission is received by the receiver service, a file is written which the DatamedRcv™ service will translate to the appropriate destination format. DatamedRcv™ Module DRCV02 can handle incoming requests from multiple supported devices simultaneously to simplify and expand reception.

DatamedRcv™ Module DRCV05

DatamedRcv™ Module DRCV05 listens on a TCP/IP network port for an incoming connection, then receives the data and writes it to a file. There is no upper-level protocol or handshaking, just a simple network transmission. Configuration options will specify the IP address and port, the folder to write files to, and a file extension.

DatamedSnd™ ECG Transmitter Module

DatamedSnd™ Module DSND01

For DICOM® files written by DatamedFT™ into a DICOM PACSECG ManagementStoragesystem.

DatamedSnd™ ECG Transmitter Modules provide protocol-specific transmission mechanisms for host systems that may not be able to pick up the converted ECG files from a folder. A Transmitter Module runs as a system service that monitors a folder for converted files and sends the files using the appropriate protocol.  It monitors a folder for .dcm files and sends the files using the DICOM® transmission protocol to a DICOM® PACS or other DICOM® based storage system. This transmitter module is NOT used if DatamedWL™ is installed, and is only needed if the PACS /storage system does not have the capability to load .dcm files directly.
