Kardia Acquisition Expands Web-Based Cardiology Solutions

 

June 5, 2008

June 9, 2008 — Kardia Health Systems will expand its cardiology platforms with the acquisition of Freeland Systems, a provider of multimodality medical imaging and reporting software solutions, in a move that expands Kardia’s line of Web-based products for cardiology.

With this acquisition, Kardia will be able to offer customers a complete Web-based clinical, diagnostic and reporting solution for end-to-end management of multiple imaging modalities.

The flagship Kardia product is the Kardia E reporting and workflow solution. It streamlines the clinical workflow process – including patient scheduling, template-guided entry of medical information and automatic generation of interpretive diagnostic statements, accreditation requirements, and billing codes.

The Freeland Systems ACCESSPOINT suite of products will extend workflow management to include the data storage and disaster recovery, retrieval, distribution and presentation of both reports and images. With database access, secure image transfer and a server interface, ACCESSPOINT Web Viewer is a key component of a PACS or EMR system.

Other ACCESSPOINT components reportedly allow practitioners to leverage the modular solutions required for their business, such as data mining, image storage and reporting, Web delivery of diagnostic quality images and integration with existing digital applications and hardware devices. For example, ACCESSPOINT PACsLink expands existing electronic medical records to include images and image-related reports. It brings together all imaging modalities including cardiac cath, nuclear CT/MRI, echocardiography, vascular and/or X-ray for display on any computer.
