Cardiovascular Information Systems (CVIS)

This channel includes news and new technology innovations for cardiovascular information systems, CVIS, also called cardiac PACS (C-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.

An example of artificial intelligence from the start-up company Viz. The image shows how the AI software automatically reviews an echocardiogram, completes an automated left ventricular ejection fraction quantification and then presents the data side by side with the original cardiology report. The goal of the software is to augment clinicians and cardiologists by helping them speed workflow, act as a second set of eyes and aid clinical decision support.
