Abstract In most intensive care units (ICUs), clinical data acquisition and integration relies upon time-consuming human intervention to create huge paper flowsheets, a practice that creates "information overload", errors, fragmented medical decision making and long-term archiving problems. We have developed, tested and FDA certified a new type of computer system that is officially a 510K device. The iCuro System is a bedside, networked, movable machine that automatically acquires and integrates time-stamped monitor, ventilator and infusion pump data, with patient data from labs, specialty devices, and bedside observations. iCuro™ has a secure, HIPAA-standards compliant architecture, and is locally configurable using push-button set-up and an integrated HL7 mapping utility. The iCuro device provides real-time access to trended clinical information streams at the bedside, or offsite, at the iCuro Control Center™. The iCuro user interface gives each treating clinician flexibility to generate "their" integrated information set on demand, in the desired format. The device also automates nurse and respiratory therapist charting, and concatenates userentered and machine-acquired data onto "zoom-able" trend graphic panels and paper reports. iCuro fully supports neonatal, pediatric and adult critical care processes.
