May 15, 2015 — Geneva Healthcare will showcase a set of new features on The Geneva Healthcare Suite – a technology platform for managing data from cardiac devices – at Heart Rhythm Society's annual scientific sessions in Boston. The cloud-based software suite organizes device data from multiple sources on an intuitive dashboard to provide critical health information to clinicians in real time. New features in The Geneva Healthcare Suite 2.0 focus on streamlining practice workflow and patient engagement with automated reminders, notifications and follow-up for remote monitoring that create an open channel of communication between doctor and patient.

The new features expand on The Geneva Healthcare Suite’s current offering for presenting implanted cardiac device data, which is already in use at cardiac care centers and emergency rooms across the country. In addition, Geneva’s new patient engagement features can potentially help providers meet some core objectives of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services’ (CMS) Stage 3 Meaningful Use, including coordination of care through patient engagement.

“This platform solves a critical problem we have every day: Patients with implanted cardiac devices are forced to wait hours for representatives from the device manufacturers to arrive and process data from the device. A patient can wait hours just to understand the status of their device,” said Paul Patchen, vice president of Sharp HealthCare’s cardiovascular service line. Sharp HealthCare, a San Diego integrated regional healthcare delivery system, signed a multiyear, system-wide contract to use the suite in all four of its emergency departments at its acute care hospitals. “With The Geneva Healthcare Suite, our own staff can understand the data instantly and begin making critical decisions about the patient’s care.”

A study published in the Academic Emergency Medicine Journal proved that The Geneva Healthcare Suite cuts emergency room wait times an average of 92 minutes. The platform allows emergency department operators to efficiently access a patient’s cardiac device data, use that information at the point of care and immediately make this information accessible to the most qualified clinician wherever they are.
