SANTA CLARA, Calif. – September 26, 2018 – Glassbeam, Inc., the premier machine data analytics company, announced today an expansion of its Clinical Engineering Analytics (CLEAN™) offerings to become the only AI analytics solution to combine machine logs with DICOM data. The company also announced its solution now includes biomedical equipment as well as imaging systems. Glassbeam enables healthcare provider teams to manage entire fleets of medical equipment in a single view.

The company has completed a third party assessment to verify Glassbeam’s compliance with the HIPAA Privacy, Security, and Breach Notification Rules and ongoing commitment to protect individually identifiable health information collected by its advanced data analytics solution. HIPAA, the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996, applies to healthcare providers, insurers, hospitals, and any company with access to patients’ protected health information (PHI) – including Glassbeam, which provides advanced data analytics services to healthcare organizations.

Connected medical devices transmit errors, warnings, and invaluable utilization data that when translated, provide healthcare organizations a clear picture of equipment performance, usage, and overall operational effectiveness. The challenge is that this data comes from different data sources with multiple formats, such as machine logs and DICOM headers when images are transmitted to PACS servers. Users of Glassbeam’s machine data analytics solution can now uncover deep insights by assimilating all of these data sources into one platform to dramatically improve uptime and maximize revenue of medical equipment while safeguarding patients’ PHI.

The expansion of Glassbeam’s data analytics to include biomedical devices, such as GE CARESCAPE patient monitors and Medfusion Syringe Pumps, has been another breakthrough in its cloud-based analytics offerings. Large hospitals and Integrated Delivery Networks (IDNs) have hundreds to thousands of biomedical devices in their facilities. It can be a challenge to track the actual utilization of devices and preventative maintenance schedules involve costly labor.

“Our vision at Glassbeam has from day one been to be a pioneer in providing a single pane of glass for multi-vendor, multi-modality analytics for healthcare provider market,” said Puneet Pandit, CEO and co-founder of Glassbeam. “Not only can Glassbeam now offer an expanded view into the performance of entire fleets of medical equipment, whether imaging or biomedical devices, but we can now offer complete confidence that if patient data is pulled into Glassbeam Cloud, it will be highly secure.”
