ACC: Expanded McKesson & Toshiba Partnership Pairs Horizon Cardiology Hemo with Infinix X-ray

McKesson has announced it has expanded its distribution agreement with Toshiba America Medical Systems Inc., to include cardiovascular medical solutions. Nine months ago the two companies had announced their initial radiology imaging partnership, which has been a success, they say.

The new agreement calls for Toshiba to offer Horizon Cardiology Hemo, a key component of McKesson’s Horizon Cardiology CVIS solution, as an option with Toshiba’s Infinix portfolio of vascular X-ray systems. The combined technology offers healthcare organizations an affordable, turnkey solution to meet evolving clinical workflow and information management needs in the invasive cardiovascular suite.

The combined technologies of McKesson and Toshiba offer healthcare organizations of any size an easy way to implement, expand or restructure diagnostic imaging services or cardiology programs.

McKesson’s Horizon Cardiology Hemo was recently ranked No. 1 in the KLAS Cardiology Reporting 2007 report issued by KLAS Enterprises, LLC. The cutting-edge hemodynamic monitoring system enables cardiologists to dramatically expedite patient charting and final reporting by enabling them to review patient vitals side-by-side with real-time patient reporting during interventional procedures.

Patient demographics, hemodynamic waveforms, cardiac images and procedural information all flow seamlessly into one complete cardiac patient record. The system eliminates repetitive data entry and gives clinicians the ability to intuitively access information from one location.

Toshiba's award-winning Infinix-i family of vascular X-ray systems utilizes advanced features that incorporate Toshiba's sophisticated CCD camera technology. A variety of configurations are available to meet a wide range of interventional and diagnostic needs, from dual or single-plane cardiovascular systems to biplane angio systems.

In July 2006, McKesson and Toshiba signed a distribution agreement to offer McKesson’s No. 1 ranked Horizon Medical Imaging PACS diagnostic imaging devices, including the Aquilion line of CT scanners. The agreement offers imaging centers and hospitals under 200 beds a turnkey solution that’s affordable, easy to implement and easy to support. The combined diagnostic imaging solution works seamlessly with the Horizon Cardiology solution for CT and MR modalities to continue to offer cost-effective data storage for customers.
