The dynamics of our world are changing rapidly. Cardiologists are being challenged to complete documentation in an increasingly challenging clinical setting while adhering to ever-changing guidelines. Both of which will require taking workflow efficiency to a higher level, something that was not easy, even in the pre-COVID-19 world. The fact is, 43 percent of cardiologists are burnt out and spend twice as much time interacting with the electronic health record as they do with patients.[1,2]
Join our panel of experts as they share:
• Their experience with structured reporting
• How this has positively impacted their workflow
• Perspectives on AI in cardiology and the path forward
This webinar will also include a preview demo of GE Healthcare’s Centricity Cardio Enterprise  with Intelligent Reporting, designed to help cardiologists spend time on what matters most, the patient.
Intelligent Reporting leverages a rules-based artificial intelligence (AI) engine that can automatically provide findings based on clinical industry standard rules which are incorporated in the software. Ultimately, Intelligent Reporting helps reduce the cardiologist’s documentation burden by providing reports up to 83 percent complete before the physician opens the exam to review.
Cardiovascular disease is complex. Structured reporting does not have to be.
The webinar took place Oct. 22 at 1 PM ET.
Dr. Diego Segura-Rodriguez is a cardiologist specialized in cardiac multimodality imaging, working at San Cecilio University Hospital in Granada (Spain) where he combines cardiac imaging with clinical cardiology. During his career, Diego has developed skills in echocardiography, including transesophageal and stress echocardiography, reaching advance certification for it by the Cardiac Imaging Association of the Spanish Society of Cardiology. He thinks that multimodality imaging has an essential role on the current cardiology In this sense, Diego has acquired cardiac MRI and cardiac CT skills and currently uses them in his working routine.
Dr. Anatole Trakhtenbroit, M.D., graduated from Albert Einstein College of Medicine in 1984. He completed his internal medicine residency and served as chief resident at the University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio. He also completed his cardiology fellowship at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston. He has been with the Cardiology Clinic of San Antonio for 29 years and retired this year. He was a director of non-invasive cardiology at Methodist Hospital in San Antonio and was involved for three years with the implementation of structured reporting from GE CCW system.
