Exam Review, Reporting Streamlined with Siemens’ Newest syngo Dynamics Solution

May 2, 2007 — Responding to AHA data that estimates 79 million American adults (one in three) have one or more types of cardiovascular disease, Siemens Medical Solutions has announced availability of a new cardiology image management and reporting solution, syngo Dynamics version 6.

As the population ages, it is anticipated that the number of cardiovascular patients will grow and the demand for innovative, new technology and information solutions will soar. Siemens’ addresses this challenge with its multimodality, dynamic image review and reporting solution that delivers real-time data transfer between Siemens' Sensis XP, a cutting-edge interventional cardiology and electrophysiology recording solution, and syngo Dynamics.

The solution improves the efficiency of clinical procedures related to cardiology, vascular and other medical disciplines. syngo Dynamics V.6 relies on IHE profiles and DICOM, supports HL-7 via interface engines to provide open connectivity, and allows healthcare facilities to create a filmless and paperless environment.

"Immediate access to cardiology studies and reports at any workstation in the hospital and from remote locations is critical to both the care team at Methodist and our patients," said Lyle Muhammad, director, Cardiology Services, Cardiac Catheterization Lab and Non-Invasive Cardiology, Methodist Willowbrook Hospital. "We are streamlining exam review and diagnosis time and improving workflow across the care team. Additionally, we expect to increase the efficiency of clinical procedures using the solution's evidence-based reporting tools."

"We have been able to expedite our workflow enormously - cutting report turn- around time from 7 days to 30 minutes by automating the distribution of referring physician reports," said Thomas Forbes, M.D., director, Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory, Children's Hospital of Michigan. "syngo Dynamics seamlessly integrates our clinical cardiac catheterization knowledge with user-friendly reporting to enhance our workflow and speed our clinical service delivery. Instead of simply linking up individual departments, we can now connect all areas within Children's Hospital and beyond."

syngo Dynamics is a member of Siemens' Soarian Cardiovascular Enterprise, a comprehensive IT solution that supports the cardiovascular care continuum from admission to follow up. This scalable solution combines diagnostic image storage, image processing and evidence-based reporting tools from syngo Dynamics along with Soarian Cardiology to provide a longitudinal clinical reporting repository that becomes a cardiovascular electronic patient record.
