April 2, 2014 — At the 2014 annual scientific session of the American College of Cardiology (ACC), GE Healthcare introduced a new version of its Muse ECG (electrocardiograph) management system that now allows interoperability with non-GE ECG systems. The new i2 ECG Connect technology allows bi-directional flow of data with other vendor’s ECG systems to improved care collaboration and asset management.
The Muse system can now bridge a healthcare system’s ECG investments through bi-directional data sharing with both non-GE and GE electrocardiographs. This solution offers comprehensive data access for clinicians by integrating ECG data from devices manufactured by vendors such as Philips, Mortara, Nihon Kohden, Edan and Schiller in addition to GE.
Enabling connectivity to a broader set of ECG assets provides a variety of benefits, including the ability to optimize utilization of current devices. According to Melanie Varin, general manager of U.S. sales and marketing, diagnostic cardiology, GE Healthcare, “Customers are excited about this opportunity to enable the flow of cardiac information across their enterprise, while extending their current ECG investment.”
