Best Buy Helps Physicians Overcome IT Challenges

July 29, 2010 – To help physicians overcome the medical technology challenges that impede rapid adoption of connected medical technologies, Best Buy For Business and Cardiac Science Corp. recently announced an alliance.

Best Buy For Business serves small and medium businesses and provides a wide array of computing products and expert information technology (IT) support services. Cardiac Science Corporation is a global leader in automated external defibrillator (AED) and diagnostic cardiac monitoring devices.

“Healthcare reform incentivizes physicians to adopt medical technologies that network with electronic medical record (EMR) systems, and there is a great unmet opportunity for IT expertise in the small and mid-size medical office,” said Glen Swanson, vice president of the business customer group at Best Buy. “Our relationship with Cardiac Science will enable us to more effectively serve tens of thousands of physicians who are seeking support for their IT needs.”

The Best Buy For Business team will help physician offices choose computing and networking products, which will allow utilization of Cardiac Science medical device purchases, including products such as CareCenter MD, a new PC-based diagnostic workstation for electrocardiogram (ECG) and stress, and HeartCentrix, an EMR-device connectivity solution for Cardiac Science ECG, stress, and Holter products. Practices also may utilize Best Buy’s Geek Squad team of trained IT experts to install and support these computer and networking products.

The Best Buy For Business/Cardiac Science partnership serves the medical field with an offering of medical device and computer technology solutions to facilitate the move to PC-based healthcare information systems.

Cardiac Science will continue to handle medical device sales, installation, in-service training, and medical device technical support. Best Buy For Business will supply IT products and services selected specifically to ensure optimal performance of Cardiac Science devices in the physician office. The products and services to be offered by Best Buy For Business include pre-sales IT consulting, IT hardware and software sales, installation, and post-sales technical support.
