May 9, 2008 – Philips started shipping the upgrade Xcelera R2.2, a new version of the Xcelera multimodality cardiology image management, analysis and reporting solution, designed to offer enhanced functionality and greater workflow efficiency.
Xcelera R2.2 is a centralized system that addresses efficiency and workflow challenges, while helping caregivers manage the variety of examinations and procedures their patients undergo while receiving cardiac care.
The company says Xcelera R2.2 offers improved support for imaging studies and data from key cardiac subspecialties, including cardiac catheterization and cardiovascular ultrasound and additionally supports nuclear cardiology, cardiac CT, cardiac MRI and electrophysiology. It also provides access to relevant electrocardiograms (ECGs) from market-leading ECG management systems from multiple vendors. The Xcelera WebForum option provides distribution of studies and clinical reports across the healthcare enterprise.
Additionally, Xcelera R2.2 offers embedded support for the new AutoQUANT v7.0 nuclear cardiology quantification package, which helps doctors to analyze heart structure and function. The system is also compatible with existing and forthcoming versions of the Philips QLAB suite of advanced ultrasound quantification tools.
Xcelera R2.2 also offers connectivity with Philips’ Xper Information Management. Introduced in 2007, this cardiovascular workflow solution provides hemodynamic monitoring, charting, reporting, scheduling, and inventory management for the cath lab suite. By combining these two solutions with the Philips Allura Xper family’s cardiovascular imaging system, caregivers can benefit from a fluid cath lab workflow, allowing for maximum focus on the patient.
