Description

METHOD AND SYSTEM FOR COLLECTING AND DISSEMINATION OF DATA FROM MEDICAL EQUIPMENT, ESPECIALLY USED IN

UNITS INTENSIVE CARE

The present invention relates to a novel method and a novel system for collecting data from transmitters producing said data and to broadcast to users. Each user has at least one computer equipment, including a micro-personal computer connected to a display screen and / or printer and / or a speaker. Each computer equipment is associated with a data analysis software.

Specifically, the invention relates to a new method and a new system to collect data from medical devices, including from medical devices used in intensive care units, and broadcasting said data to health practitioners. Every health care practitioner has at least one computer equipment, including a micro personal computer connected to a display screen and / or printer and / or a speaker. Said computer equipment is associated with a clinical analysis software.

Medical devices are commonly used in intensive care units, cardiac monitors, ventilators, infusion pumps, etc. Most devices on the market today have a communication port, RS232 generally. They therefore allow to broadcast all or part of the data collected in clinical analysis software. This software uses the data collected by medical devices for numerous applications, for example for the study of the patient's response to treatment, or to a change in prescription. Clearly this is valuable information for the entire medical community, physician and nurses via the hospital administration, pharmaceutical companies and health officials nationwide.

However, a fundamental problem must be resolved if we want to recover the data collected by medical devices. Indeed, there is no common communication protocol between devices and computers. Using a simple analogy, each medical device speaks a language that is specific to it. Each software must understand and speak a multitude of languages. There are essentially two solutions to this problem.

The first solution is to connect each medical device to a black box that is specific and is designed to translate messages received in a common language that can be understood by the clinical software. Examples include, Device Link HP Octanet company or society Marquette-Hellige.

The second solution is to develop for each clinical analysis software program specific to each medical device. Examples include the clink No link solution of Picis and CareVue company HP.

In one case as in the other, the variety of devices and software developed requires black box designers and / or developers of clinical software to modify constantly their products without meeting the needs of users already equipped. The solutions described in the documents EASTMAN KODAK (WO 99 41691 A) of 19 August 1999, WOOD AND AL (US 5,715,823) of 10 February 1998, Kleinholz ET AL (XP002083080) June 1996 Haskin MARVIN E (US 4764 870 A) of 16 August 1998 and Pinsky ET AL (US 5,513,101 A) of 30 April 1996 have the same drawbacks.

Certainly, there have been attempts to standardize messages output devices. To date these attempts were unsuccessful. For example, it took several years to produce a first draft of standardization of information from infusion pumps, one of the simplest devices market.

Will now be described in Figure 2 which shows schematically in block form diagrams six component modules of a software embodiment for implementing the invention. The software, hereinafter referred to as "DataCaptor" software consists of 7 modules: (1) The DataCaptor Service (DS) 21, also known in French Service DataCaptor is the heart of the software. It starts and controls the other modules. It ensures proper functioning of the entire system. It detects faults and restores nominal operation by correcting any problems. It verifies that each module DataCaptor Communication Interface (DCI) 22 (4a, Figure 1), also known in French DataCaptor the communication interface is enabled and working properly. It maintains the integrity and security of the system at any time. It controls DataCaptor Device Interface Modules (DDI) 23 (4a, Figure 1), otherwise known in French Interface Device of DataCaptor, via interfaces (on / off: M / A commands: C). It provides interfaces for use by the other modules.

(2) The DataCaptor Data Store (DDS) 24, also known in French the device DataCaptor Data storage is a data storage module D, both for the long term and the short term. This module receives data acquired by each DDI 23 stores on the disk 25

(4g, Figure 1) and transmits data to DataCaptor ActiveX Controls (DAC) 26, otherwise known in French ActiveX Controls DataCaptor. The DDS 24 performs functions in itself known for managing data storage. It is optimized to deal with both, without reduced performance, real-time queries and historical data requests. It provides interfaces for an operation of data D and C commands by the other modules. All collected data is stored locally in binary files.

(3) Each DataCaptor ActiveX Control (DAC) 26 is accessible from all points of computer communication network 6, be it a small NetBEUI network or the Internet. Each DataCaptor ActiveX Control (DAC) 26 enables data distribution D. DataCaptor ActiveX Control (DAC) 26 is the DataCaptor Data Store (DDS) 24 associated with it knows the address and then registers with it as a data receiver. The DataCaptor ActiveX Control (DAC) 26 can then receive data from the D DataCaptor Data Store (DDS) 24 associated. The latter can be located close to or be remote. The data D are transmitted by DataCaptor ActiveX Control (DAC) 26 to computer equipment 5 (1) of the Health Practitioner via the DataCaptor Data Portal module (PDD) 40, also known in French language portal DataCaptor data. The clinical software used by a health practitioner and accesses all data related to a patient collected by any medical device to a care unit, hospital, etc. The DataCaptor ActiveX Control (DAC) 26 C may make orders DataCaptor Data Store (DDS) 24 and / or DataCaptor Service (DS) 21 and any module.

The application software programmer 5th clinical analysis may, in the case of some embodiments, include in it a DataCaptor ActiveX Control Module (DAC) 26. The DataCaptor ActiveX Control Module (DAC) 26 is the interface of use of the system for the programmer. In the case of this variant, the commands C, addressed by the DataCaptor ActiveX Control (DAC) 26 to DataCaptor Data Store (DDS) 24 and / or DataCaptor Service (DS) 21 and any module can be preprogrammed the application and activated by the health practitioner software. By encapsulating one or more modules DataCaptor ActiveX Control (DAC) 26 in the clinical software used by a health practitioner, it allows one to access all data related to a patient collected by any medical device a care unit, hospital, etc.

(4) DataCaptor Device Interfaces (DDI) 23 provide access to medical devices via DataCaptor Communication Interface (DCI) 22. They are configured according to the characteristics of the medical device connected from the parameters contained in the register 27 (4f, Figure 1) of the operating system and introduced into the register by the DataCaptor Control Panel (DCP) 28 (4 Figure 1), otherwise known in French DataCaptor the Control Panel. They are started by the Service DataCaptor (DS) 21. Then each DataCaptor Device Interface (DDI) 23 connects the module DataCaptor Communication Interface (DCI) 22 appropriate. The DataCaptor Device Interfaces (DDI) 23 ensure the maintenance of the connection with the connected device and manage detected communication errors. Each DataCaptor Device Interface

(DDI) 23 provides both the low-level communication by

1 via the Communication Interface Module DataCaptor

(INN) 22 and the top-level interface communication protocols of data transmitted from the medical device concerned. The DataCaptor Device Interfaces (DDI) 23 read and translate the protocols of medical devices which they are connected.

The DataCaptor Device Interfaces (DDI) 23 can read and translate sporadic parameters, real-time data curves and other digital data output of medical devices.

Each DataCaptor Device Interface (DDI) 23 transmits the data collected DataCaptor Data Store (DDS) 24. (5) DataCaptor Communication Interfaces (DCI) 22 used to start and control the physical communication ports 29 with the computer communication networks which are connected medical devices 1. There is a DataCaptor communication Interface (DCI) 22 communication port type (serial, network, etc.). Each DataCaptor Communication Interface (DCI) 22 is started by the first DataCaptor Device Interface (DDI) 23 that requires this type of communication port. They also monitor any communication errors. (6) The module DataCaptor Control Panel (DCP) 28 (4, 1) is the interface for configuring the system. It is through the DataCaptor control panel (DCP) 28 that the user specifies (i) the physical connections between medical devices and physical communication ports, (ii) communication parameters and (iii) the type medical device concerned.

The module DataCaptor Control Panel (DCP) 28 allows updating the register 27 (4f, Figure 1). The DataCaptor Module Control Panel (DCP) 28 provides DataCaptor Device Interfaces (DDI) 23 via the register 27, the information on the configuration of the system data sources and DataCaptor Communication Interfaces (DCI) 22 concerned.

(7) The DataCaptor Data Portal module (DDP) 40 is the data conversion module D, from DataCaptor

ActiveX Control (DAC) 26, the communication format of the fifth clinical analysis software (Figure 1). The DataCaptor Data Portal (DDP) 40 transmits the data thus converted, to the application software clinical analysis fifth computer equipment 5 (Figure 1). The DataCaptor Data Portal module (DDP) 40 receives commands C application software 5e clinical analysis (Figure 1) and transmits them to DataCaptor ActiveX Control (DAC) 26.

A DataCaptor Data Portal (DDP) 40 is for receiving D data of one or more DataCaptor ActiveX Control (DAC) 26.

When the application software programmer 5th clinical analysis (Figure 1) incorporates therein a DataCaptor ActiveX Control Module (DAC) 26, it is not necessary to provide a DataCaptor Data Portal (DDP) 40. In this case also, the programmer of the application software for clinical analysis 5th adapts the proprietary language of clinical analysis software common format. Synthesis

The problem analysis and solution of the invention shows that it is possible to split the general problem into simpler problems to solve: To acquire the data. Managing communication with the device via the communication protocol.

Translate incoming data into an internal format.

Data archiving. User data distribution.

Make accessible the data by application software (including clinical analysis software).

Translation of internal format to General format.

Management of the whole system. Ensure controls functions, history and control.

The solution according to 1 the invention provides all data, regardless of the format of the source, into a single output format, and easily exploitable.

The basic platform used to develop a variant of DataCaptor software is Microsoft Distributed Component Object Model ([D] COM).

This variant of DataCaptor software is written in Microsoft C ++ and Visual Basic. It implements a base architecture ([D] COM) and runs on WNT, W98 and W95. The choice of ([D] COM) controls all inter-module communication issues, inter-PCs, and the Internet and ensures compatibility with future versions of Microsoft's operating system, while allowing binary compatibility with other operating systems. Indeed, [D] COM is a binary standard.

The possibility exists to write more DataCaptor software variants in CORBA, using Java. 90% of platforms can therefore use DataCaptor.
