McKesson to Release New Data Management Systems at ACC

March 18, 2008 - McKesson reports that it is unveiling two new Horizon Cardiology products for the cath lab, including Holding Area Charting and the Nurse Charting Station, at ACC ’08, both of which are designed to simplify and expedite information flow in the cath lab, increase data accuracy by minimizing duplication and strengthen the facility’s commitment to patient safety.

These products are a powerful enhancement to McKesson’s vision for the Integrated Cath Lab, allowing pre- and post-cath data and vitals to be charted and stored in Horizon Cardiology’s singular database. The singular database provides efficient and accurate acquisition, storage, retrieval and distribution of pre- and post-cath information.
When information is captured with the Holding Area Charting station, the technologist on the hemodynamic monitoring system has immediate access to prior patient information such as demographics, past medical history, lab results and vitals. The hemodynamic procedure can begin immediately, reportedly with no delays. All information from the hemodynamic procedure is said to synchronize with the workstations in the pre-procedure holding area as well as in the recovery room.

The second product to be unveiled is the Nurse Charting Station. This application is geared to enable the nurse in the cath lab to work in parallel and in complete synchronization with the technologist in the control room. All charted data is immediately captured in the central database and becomes part of the final procedure report.

Horizon Cardiology is a complete cardiovascular information solution (CVIS) that includes fully integrated hemodynamic monitoring and ECG Management. Entirely built on a singular platform, Horizon Cardiology is engineered to integrate reports, images, waveforms and measurements into a central cardiac patient file. Images from multiple modalities and information are accessible over local networks or the Web, including Web-based report finalization. All the information is said to becomes part of the electronic health record to connect the care team as the patient moves through the enterprise.
