Enhanced Cardiac Information Management Crosses the Continuum

October 30, 2007— Philips today announced the North American release of Philips Xcelera, a multi-modality image management, physician reporting and information distribution system, designed to help solve organization and workflow challenges.

Xcelera brings advanced clinical tools from multiple imaging modalities onto one centralized platform to foster clinical collaboration when diagnosing patients. The enhanced Xcelera solution organizes and provides access to images and data from key cardiology subspecialties, including echocardiography, cardiovascular ultrasound, nuclear cardiology, cardiac CT, cardiac MR, cardiac catheterization, and electrophysiology, as well as direct links to electrocardiography (ECG) studies.

Because patients receiving cardiac care often undergo many clinical tests over a period of time and at different locations in the healthcare system, the Xcelera solution is designed to facilitate the process of documenting the patient’s medical condition, as derived from these clinical tests, into a secure, centralized electronic system. As the patient moves through the care continuum, Xcelera manages and distributes the diverse test results, supporting collaboration amongst physicians to achieve better clinical outcomes. In addition, referring and on-call physicians can benefit from Philips’ Xcelera WebForum, which allows Internet access to all relevant information.

Philips also plans to enable its existing Xcelera customers to benefit from the clinical enhancements of the new release by making upgrades available beginning in the first half of 2008.
