Cerner's Cardiovascular Solutions Enable Cardiologists to Automate Functions

 

September 22, 2009

Cerner cardiovascular solutions enable cardiologists to automate functions across the continuum of care. Built upon the unified Cerner Millennium architecture, our solutions unify cardiovascular diagnostic activities, therapeutic interventions and follow-up regimens into a single workflow, integrated with the electronic medical record (EMR). Additionally, cardiologists now can digitize ECG objects and send them directly to PowerChart Cardiovascular. This enables cardiology departments to receive and present patient ECG data in the EMR seconds after it was acquired, eliminating the need for an ECG management system.

PowerChart ECG Viewer is a major Cerner Cardiovascular offering that provides a unique and comprehensive ability to receive, manage, display and report on ECGs anywhere from within PowerChart and affiliated “Nets”. This offering makes Cerner the first company to provide full capabilities for the ECG from within the electronic medical record. The PowerChart ECG Viewer component includes communication integration and clinical Worklist functionality that presents a consolidated view of ECG information, visually incorporating prior encounters, critical results and observations.
