May 1, 2019 — Digital healthcare company Murj announced the immediate availability of the Murj 2.0 implantable cardiac device management software.
Clinicians are burdened with managing a growing number of implantable cardiac device patients, and an accelerating volume of data being transmitted from those devices. Murj frees clinicians from this data burden, enabling them to spend time on patient care, not on data entry or struggling with outdated software. Murj’s cloud-based software manages all implantable cardiac devices — pacemakers, defibrillators and implantable loop recorders — from all manufacturers.
The Murj 2.0 upgrade was deployed automatically as a software-as-a-service (SaaS) cloud-based application, completely eliminating the need for information technology (IT) resources. Murj customers now have access to the most advanced high-speed device management tool available, according to the company; with actionable data instantly available in a unified, intuitive user interface for a seamless and extremely efficient workflow.
The Murj 2.0 platform gives clinicians a 360-degree view of their implantable cardiac device patients. The 360-degree patient view includes past device transmissions, prior events, clinical impressions, and generation change tracking across different devices models and manufacturers. Murj’ s longitudinal patient view facilitates a level of care that is both deep in insight and rapid in its delivery.
“Murj’s longitudinal patient view is essential to rapidly diagnose a device event,” said Joseph J. Tiano, M.D., Cardiology Physicians of Fairfield County (Conn.). “When a case is escalated to my attention, I want instant access to essential patient historical device data and therapies, and the last thing the patient wants is a 40-minute delay while I dig through the EHR [electronic health record] looking for prior events. Using Murj, the key data is right there, dramatically improving my ability to effectively and efficiently deliver care.”
“We care for thousands of cardiac patients, and were burdened with hard-to-use software and paper processes,” said Rae Broome, lead device technician, Prisma Health Upstate-Carolina Cardiology. “Switching to Murj’s workflow to manage over 4,000 patients has saved me hours each day, and our nurse practitioners now spend time on patient care, not on administration. It’s only because of Murj we’ve been able to move more patients into remote management, improving patient care and our efficiency.”
Key enhancements available with Murj 2.0, include:
Smart Search: Natural language search bar delivers advanced population insight and care opportunities. Instantly find a patient, a device, a family of devices or a group of patients with similar events, devices or impressions;
Report Upload: Clinicians can now upload reports and PDFs from any device manufacturer to a patient’s record;
Escalated Performance: System performance has been improved by more than 300 percent, speeding review of dozens of device transmissions from a single patient; and
Advanced Test Automation: New automated test environment accelerates the development and deployment of new features and capabilities, enabling Murj to respond to customer and market needs faster.
Murj will be exhibiting at the Heart Rhythm Society (HRS) 2019 annual meeting, May 8-11 in San Francisco.
