GE Healthcare to Use RTI Connext Middleware as Industrial Internet Transport for Medical Systems

RTI Connext Platform Allows Standardization on Common Platform Across Product Lines

SUNNYVALE, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 08/14/14 -- Real-Time Innovations (RTI), the Industrial Internet of Things communications platform company, today announced that GE Healthcare intends to use RTI's Connext™ Platform as the core communication for new generations of several products. The RTI Connext Platform allows unprecedented connectivity, enabling smarter systems of connected medical devices in hospitals as well as fast integration and connectivity of large medical instruments.

"GE Healthcare chose the DDS standard because it can handle many classes of intelligent machines," said J Gustavo Perez, General Manager for MI&CT Engineering at GE. "RTI Connext DDS satisfies the demanding requirements of our devices and supports standardization on a single communications platform across product lines."

"RTI's technology performs as the nervous system for many of GE Healthcare's devices," said Stan Schneider, CEO at RTI. "With RTI Connext DDS and Connext Micro DDS, GE engineers are building a more connected patient care ecosystem with the goal to allow efficient machine operation and less expensive configuration."

By networking the many types of devices in a hospital room, alarms can become smart, only sounding when multiple devices indicate errant physiological parameters. By connecting measurements to treatment, smart drug delivery systems can react to patient conditions fast and reliably. By tracking patients around the hospital and connecting them to cloud resources, efficiency of care can be dramatically improved.

Where many organizations get into trouble, however, is that they try to have a broad and deep knowledge in each of these areas. This is a huge blow to an organization's productivity. By automating or outsourcing some of these pieces, such as databases, infrastructure, and networks, your team can instead focus on development, testing, and deployment. Further, organizations that focus their attention on these areas can eventually move to a test-driven development structure that condenses several l...

The most common myths about blockchain include the assumption that it is private, or that there is only one blockchain, and the idea that blockchain is...
Never mind that we might not know what the future holds for cryptocurrencies and how much values will fluctuate or even how the process of mining a coin could cost as much as the value of the coin itself - cryptocurrency mining is a hot industry and shows no signs of slowing down. However, energy consumption to mine cryptocurrency is one of the biggest issues facing this industry. Burning huge amounts of electricity isn't incidental to cryptocurrency, it's basically embedded in the core of "mini...

Every organization is facing their own Digital Transformation as they attempt to stay ahead of the competition, or worse, just keep up. Each new opportunity, whether embracing machine learning, IoT, or a cloud migration, seems to bring new development, deployment, and management models. The results are more diverse and federated computing models than any time in our history.
