Science launches software to connect devices to medical records
26 Sept 2006
Bothell, Wash., USA. Cardiac Science Corporation (NASDAQ:CSCX) has
launched HeartCentrix, a software solution that enables its diagnostic
stress, Holter and electrocardiography devices to communicate seamlessly
with electronic medical record (EMR) systems.
HeartCentrix enables physicians to maximize their EMR investment by
integrating these devices into their workflow. HeartCentrix software is
launched from within the EMR, allowing the physician to order a test from
within the patient's chart. Once the device performs the test, the
physicians can review, edit, and store the results within the EMR
application. HeartCentrix also allows physicians to remotely review and
confirm test results outside the practice wherever they have internet access
to their EMR.
"Physicians continue to select Cardiac Science devices because they trust
our brands, and value our technical superiority and product reliability,"
said Garry Norris, vice president of marketing. "We designed HeartCentrix so
that physicians can connect their existing, clinically-trusted devices to
their EMRs, creating a simpler workflow for ordering tests and managing
data. We believe that HeartCentrix will help physicians provide cardiac care
more efficiently and maintain state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment more
affordably. We are also very excited by the reception HeartCentrix has
received so far from EMR companies."
