Philips ECG Management Systems Interface With STEMI Alert Smartphone App

App helps shorten the time between a heart attack and treatment


September 4, 2012

Philips Heathcare announced in September 2012 its TraceMasterVue and IntelliSpace electrocardiogram (ECG) management systems will interface with mVisum Inc.’s STEMI Alert smartphone app.

mVisum’s ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) Alert is a comprehensive tool designed to gather patient data surrounding an acute cardiac event and securely push it to physicians’ smartphones where is can be quickly viewed, assessed and responded to.

At the heart of the mVisum STEMI Alert process is the patient ECG, which is acquired by the Philips PageWriter cardiograph and analyzed by the industry-leading DXL ECG Algorithm. The DXL Algorithm determines which ECGs are in need of clinical attention, and they are wirelessly transferred to the Philips TraceMasterVue or IntelliSpace ECG management system. These identified ECGs are then “pushed” directly to the appropriate clinician’s smartphone via the Alert Platform, removing the need to travel to a review station, and helping clinicians to make faster, better-informed decisions when time is of the essence.

The STEMI Alert app is supported on all major smartphone operating platforms including iPhone, Android, Blackberry and Windows, and helps guard against network and device malfunctions, protecting patient data and assisting customers in meeting HIPAA and HITECH requirements.
