Scimage, Philips Team Up For Coordinated, Efficient ECG Workflow
October 24, 2011 – As a result of the long-standing relationship between Philips Healthcare and ScImage Inc., the two companies are pleased to announce a newly developed integration option between ScImage’s PicomEnterprise picture archive and communications systems (PACS) and the Philips PageWriter TC series cardiographs. As a team, the two companies believe this interface will greatly simplify clinical electrocardiogram (ECG) workflow and reduce the complexity normally associated with custom integration.
This new bi-directional interface enhances productivity and reduces transcription errors during the ECG acquisition process by transmitting modality worklist from ScImage PACS directly to PageWriter TC cardiographs. Additionally, this collaborative interface makes the resulting ECGs available throughout the enterprise by direct uploading of ECGs from Philips PageWriter TC cardiographs into the ScImage PACS.
The companies broadened their working relationship that originally saw the integration of Philips’ QLab ultrasound software integrated within the ScImage PACS.
