Arden Syntax connected with Dräger's intensive care system
Medexter's ArdenSuite software products―the Arden Syntax server, Arden Syntax integrated development and test environment (IDE), and database connector―have been successfully brought into clinical routine at the Erlangen University Hospital in Erlangen/Germany over a year ago. In December 2013, the Erlangen University Hospital purchased Medexter's ArdenSuite campus license, which enables them to use the Arden Syntax software products in patient care as well as for research and teaching purposes.

Clinical MLM Development in Erlangen

The ArdenSuite software is currently being used in clinical operation at a large surgical intensive care unit (ICU) with 35 beds. Medical logic modules (MLMs) that support the clinician in over 20 clinical situations have been written and tested by the hospital's clinical and development staff using the Arden Syntax IDE; the development of further MLMs is in progress.

Bed-Side Clinical Decision Support

Accessable from Dräger's Integrated Care Manager (ICM) system, an MLM viewer gives an overview and serves as a tool for calling the MLMs from every computer in the ICU, also bed-side. Thus, the application provides clinicians per mouse-click with patient-specific clinical decision support (CDS) on issues such as procalcitonin (PCT) value measurement, detection of hyper- and hypocalciaemia, Murray score calculation, MELD score calculation, patient-oriented microbiological survey, and more.

Glucose Monitoring

Another clinical application that has been implemented in Erlangen is Arden-Syntax-enabled, data-driven alerting in glucose monitoring. Here, alerts are automatically sent to DECT-phones clinicians are carrying.

Arden Syntax IDEs in Teaching

In Erlangen, Medexter's ArdenSuite is used in teaching as well. In the context of medical informatics classes, students at the University Hospital are learning to develop MLMs themselves using the Arden Syntax integrated development and test environment, one IDE each or as a classroom project.
