Medical Device Integration (MDI) is the exchange of data from medical devices — vital sign monitors, ventilators, smart pumps, etc. — to patients' electronic health records (EHRs). In this webinar, you'll learn how MDI can save nurses time, reduce errors, improve patient outcomes, and shorten lengths of stay.
