Cardiac PACS

This channel includes news and new technology innovations for cardiovascular information systems, CVIS, also called cardiac PACS and cardiovascular information and imaging systems. These cardiac reporting systems connect to the overall patient electronic medical record (EMR), cardiac imaging, echo reporting, diagnostic test (ECG) reporting, cath lab hemodynamics system, and other components to aggregate all cardiac patient data, imaging and waveforms into one location. 

Stage 3 MU, stage 3meaningful use, patient engagement

Patient engagement plays a key role in the Stage 3 MU rules, where patients are more involved in their health management and treatment decisions. Part of Stage 3 requires electronic patient access to all their medical records, enabled by patient portals, as in this example of Carestream's Vue Motion software.
