The system also provides expanded compatibility with ECG carts from many manufacturers (e.g. GE, Philips, Mortara, and Schiller), which allows users to continue using their carts, or to have a flexible choice of new carts, the firm points out.
Designed to meet the varied needs, analysis and workflow patterns of large or small institutions, within a single, unified system, IMPAX HeartStation provides a single access point to previous and current ECG examinations in a familiar, easy to read format. Study data from multiple examinations can be rapidly accessed for review, serial comparison, editing, and electronic signing of ECGs throughout a hospital. Data sharing with IMPAX Cardiovascular, or any cardiovascular information system (CVIS) or electronic medical record (EMR), means that ECGs can be accessed within the cardiovascular patient record and reviewed along with other images and reports.
By including ECGs as part of the patient’s web-accessible cardiology record, IMPAX HeartStation provides the tools for rapid review of computer-generated reports and easy comparison of ECGs from multiple devices. It provides full integration to CVIS and hospital workflow, and reconciliation of patient demographic data, orders, and billing, Agfa adds.
