June 12, 2009 — Welch Allyn recently announced the release of its CardioPerfect Workstation software Version 1.6.2., redesigned to maximize efficiency, expand electronic health record (EHR) compatibility and increase patient compliance. Capabilities include pediatric interpretation for its ECG module, compatibility with Microsoft SQL Server 2008 and enhanced METs calculation abilities along with improved report formats for its exercise stress module. Rigorous testing procedures ensure the spirometry module is also in compliance with the American Thoracic Society’s (ATS) 2005 standards for accuracy and precision.
The software, which enables healthcare professionals to store and review diagnostic test data from a variety of different instruments, was redesigned to better meet the demands of physicians amidst the economic recession. The software successfully passed all the tests required to meet the new compliance standards for lung function testing.
In addition, the new pediatric interpretation software on the Welch Allyn ECG module helps improve safety by providing more accurate reporting for pediatric patients.
In order to streamline the installation and support process of their EHR-ready devices, last year Welch Allyn announced a new certification program for vendors of EHR software that connect to Welch Allyn devices as well.
