Cardiology Clinical Reporting Milestone announced at ACC.10

March 14, 2010 — An image and information management solutions company announced at this year's Annual Scientific Session of the American College of Cardiology that the company has signed contracts for more than 90 clinical knowledge bases for Web-based structured reporting for cardiology.

A module of AMICAS VERICIS, clinical knowledge bases help cardiologists quickly and easily generate complete reports by providing a reporting template that is contextually matched to the type of exam being reviewed.

Each of the knowledge bases, which are designed to streamline reporting, contain fields that are specific to each modality so that cardiologists are able to communicate results quickly and efficiently, while also collecting data important for a variety of important activities, including ACCF-NCDR CathPCI Registry Reporting.

Since the launch of AMICAS VERICIS' Web-based reporting at ACC.09, it has signed contracts for more than 90 departmental knowledge bases for this solution across all areas of the cardiology department, including cardiac cath, echocardiography, nuclear medicine, and vascular ultrasound, according to Rodney Hawkins, vice president of product management at AMICAS.

"With AMICAS VERICIS' Web-based reporting, cardiologists around the country are now able to report on any cardiology study from anywhere, whether they are located in their office, in the cardiology department or even in their own homes," Hawkins said. "Location-independent, Web-based reporting caters to cardiologists' needs as they are often mobile and still need to provide timely patient care."

The company's current cardiology solutions, originally developed by Camtronics, are focused on workflow automation. These include: AMICAS VERICIS, which provides a multimodality solution for reviewing all types of cardiology images and a Web-based reporting module; AMICAS Hemodynamics, which provides hemodynamics data collection, waveform analysis, and procedural reporting; AMICAS ECM, which helps hospitals and IDNs consolidate all of their images and image-related information in a proven vendor-neutral infrastructure across radiology, cardiology, and other image-intensive specialties from multiple PACS systems; among several others.
