January 17, 2017 — Lumedx Corp. recently announced that it has implemented Phase 1 of a long-term, multiphase cardiovascular information system (CVIS) project with Baylor Scott & White Health.

Baylor Scott & White Health is the largest not-for-profit healthcare system in Texas, and one of the largest healthcare systems in the United States. Its first location to implement the Lumedx CVIS is Baylor Jack and Jane Hamilton Heart and Vascular Hospital in Dallas (BHVH).

Lumedx is providing the hospital with comprehensive cardiovascular data management that connects isolated data sources, integrates with the enterprise electronic health record (EHR) and eliminates redundant data collection. With that framework in place, the hospital aims to make meaningful improvements to its service line.

“The Lumedx system allows physicians to link acquisition of registry-required data with creation of the procedure-specific report,” said Kevin Wheelan, M.D., chief of medical staff at Baylor Hamilton Heart and Vascular Hospital. “This improves the accuracy of the data and the robustness of our internal quality improvement programs.” 

Goals of the project include:

  • Improving business and clinical performance through ongoing analysis of consolidated, discrete data;
  • Reducing redundant manual efforts and data errors;
  • Identifying areas with the greatest opportunities for improvement and making changes that result in significant savings; and
  • Integrating data across all the service lines and improving physician satisfaction by giving doctors the relevant cardiovascular patient history and information they need to make fully informed treatment decisions.

Solutions deployed at BHVH include:

  • Physician structured reporting for Cath, Echo and EP (electrophysiology);
  • CardioPACS (picture archiving and communication system) image management;
  • Analytics dashboards and reports;
  • Scheduling; and
  • Integration suite
