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.
