IMPLEMENTING AHI SYSTEM
- AHI System is a fully AWS cloud-hosted solution with options for bringing some information security components behind the hospital firewall as needed to meet hospital information security requirements.
- AHI System is currently on the HITRUST journey with certification anticipated in 2022.
Automated results are enabled by streaming ECG inputs
- AHI System relies solely on a single streaming ECG-II waveform
- No EHR inputs (or integration) required
- No manual blood pressure checks
- ECG vendor neutral – Leverage existing FDA-regulated bedside and telemetry ECG monitors, connected to the hospital’s network, with no special electrodes needed
- Extend coverage to general wards and emergency departments using FDA-regulated wearable ECG patch sensors
- Fully-managed, HIPAA-compliant, secure hospital-dedicated AWS installation for fast deployment, responsive browser-based interface, scalability, and easy maintenance.
- Robust information security controls are in place for secure handling of sensitive information.
Easy access using existing hospital systems
- Supports single sign-on (SSO) integration using robust OpenID Connect or SAML 2.0 protocols to enable consistent, seamless, and easy-to-use user authentication.
- AHI System is accessible to an unlimited number of clinical users via any modern internet browser on wall monitors, desktop or laptop computers, and mobile devices. Officially supported browsers include: Chrome, Edge, and Safari. Operating Systems include: Windows, macOS, Android, and iOS.
- Options are available for integrating with the hospital’s unified communications middleware to enable hospital-defined push notifications
- Plan the scope of the deployment and complete required contracts and information security reviews
- Establish the datapipe(s) between the hospital’s existing ECG monitors (bedside, telemetry, wearable) and AHI System.
- Prepare for clinical deployment by enabling single sign-on (SSO via OpenID Connect or SAML 2.0), configuring hospital-customized locations, integrating with the hospital’s unified communications middleware, and working with clinical leaders to ensure seamless workflow integration.
Originally developed by a group of healthcare organizations to streamline information security assessments in highly regulated industries like healthcare, HITRUST provides a comprehensive framework, prescriptive HIPAA-compliant controls, and third-party assessment to assure a robust information risk management and compliance program.

AHI is the new standard for detecting and predicting hemodynamic instability. Contact us to learn more.
Thought this was really easy. User friendly. Normally we have in-services; I feel like if you missed that you'd be just fine.
Nurses don’t have time to update patients' vitals and assessments every two minutes. This gives us a way to see that a patient is stable on a regular basis with easy access.
This tool can help determine where patients go [in the hospital] and how we should treat them, potentially changing admission flow, freeing up capacity and reducing length of stays.
We have a couple of teams dabbling in "early warning" models, but they have not distilled it down to a single ECG lead!
Chief Medical Officer
It would help me assign patients to nurses, knowing where the “hot-spots” are, and guide me to maintain an equal workflow with my nurses.
Critical Care/Charge RN
Just install it and they would start to use it.
