  • "As healthcare is changing and evolving, there are some very key points that we have to stay focused on, The documentation needs to be clear, it needs to be concise and it needs to be data-driven. We are able to mine and abstract quite a bit of data out of the CPN system. It gives us the information we need. And because it is in a clear, concise, easy-to-use format, it keeps the nurse at the bedside.”

Centricity Perinatal Connect Module

Lives can change in a heartbeat when it comes to perinatal care. With the Centricity Perinatal Connect module, it’s like having an extra set of eyes on your patients.

Delivering an emerging level of workflow interoperability, the module integrates perinatal information in context with other clinical data including the fetal monitoring strip—continuously and on one screen. This enables you to see your critical perinatal information and enterprise EMR clinical data at the same time—helping to make faster, more informed decisions, and enhance your workflow and patient care.

Perinatal information flows freely from Centricity Perinatal Connect module into and out of your enterprise EMR, in an integrated view, so there is no need to document in both places.

Unlike other Labor & Delivery solutions, you won’t have to trade off ease of use for enterprise EMR integration. You’re provided with a proven and robust Labor & Delivery solution, advanced fetal surveillance on a historical time continuum, and the ability to document on the fetal monitoring strip with two way data flow to your enterprise EMR. Clinicians can also review this information remotely.

Centricity Perinatal Connect Module

Centricity Perinatal Connect module provides:

  • Innovative, continuous unobstructed visibility of up to four fetal monitoring strips from different units on one screen while enabling bi-directional documentation in your enterprise EMR or other system
  • Distinctive side-by-side view of the fetal strips on a historical time continuum throughout the pregnancy
  • Research-driven, contemporary user interface designed to optimize usability and workflow

In an environment where every second counts, Centricity Perinatal Connect module provides you peace of mind knowing you’re relying on a system that has helped deliver over 45 million babies. It helps your clinicians deliver their best care to every mother and baby.


  • Document in the EMR while monitoring laboring mothers at the same time.
  • See information in one place at one time—without having to search other hospital systems or paper files.
  • Access information as you need it—view the whole strip or focus on just one short time segment.
  • Review annotations charted in other systems on the fetal strip, whether or not a fetal monitor is connected.
  • See trends by reviewing compressed data of the current and historical fetal strip on one display

Centricity Perinatal - Connect Module with Fetal Strip Analytics

Centricity Perinatal Fetal Strip Analytics, an add-on module to the Centricity Perinatal Connect module, is a clinical decision support tool that provides automated analysis of fetal heart rate patterns. Analytics helps with risk mitigation on Labor and Delivery by providing an automated analysis of fetal heart rate patterns. It supports your pattern recognition and analysis at the bedside and presents visual cues when waveform patterns indicate issues that might need clinical interventions.

Fetal Strip Analytics

Provides on-demand information about your patients to help you prepare for most situations. The Fetal Strip Analytics can feed directly into patient documentation, once reviewed by the RN, so you get the information and documentation you need to help you provide excellent patient care. It accrues data up to 24 hours from initiation – and allows you to request analytics retroactively for up to 24 hours. The flexible summary function enables users to review data in expanded view or historical shade

  • Centricity Perinatal Central Surveillance

    We reimagined the central surveillance experience. A fresh new visual design provides caregivers a modern toolset to monitor their patients at a glance.

    Central surveillance is vital for clinicians in a busy labor and delivery environment. The multi-bed display is optimized around the workflow of the clinician who needs to quickly recognize potential areas of concern for a single patient as well as all active FMS within the entire unit. Central provides new visual and audible notifications to draw the clinician's attention to possible trends in fetal monitoring activity.  

    Innovative new features include:

    • Enhanced clinical decision support with visual Fetal Monitor Strip Analytics and hi/low notifications
    • Ability to prioritize strips of interest for greater visibility
    • Scrollable strip review on screen with live surveillance for quick convenient assessment
    • Dynamic display showing active fetal monitoring across multiple units
    • Touch screen compatibility to give more data at the swipe of a finger
    • New options for visual arrangement and bed configuration
