Welch Allyn CardioPerfect Upgrade Expands, Simplifies Spirometry Testing

September 1, 2011 — Welch Allyn announced the release of its CardioPerfectWorkstation (CPWS) software version 1.6.4, the next generation of the company’s electronic health record (EHR)-ready software. It allows digital storage and more efficient review of diagnostic test data from a variety of different electronic devices.

This software upgrade expands and simplifies the ability to perform spirometry testing in medical practices working in thin-client environments. In addition, the updated spirometry module improves the ability to comply with the latest guidelines of the American Thoracic Society (ATS); it works by providing enhanced real-time quality feedback for both adult and pediatric patients.

CPWS version 1.6.4 also introduces an enterprise-class configuration management feature allowing an application service provider (ASP) to conveniently manage multiple hosted physician practices on the same server; it simultaneously keeps individual practice data and configuration settings separate and secure.

With the release of this current upgrade, all CPWS clinical modules are 64-bit compatible and support the latest Windows operating systems while maintaining 32-bit compatibility.

Welch Allyn has seen an increase in EHR deployment in thin-client environments as physicians look to take advantage of funds available through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA). The ARRA provides an estimated $19 billion in incentives over a five-year period to physicians and hospitals seeking to integrate and use certified EHRs for improved patient care.

The new software helps answer that need and allows healthcare professionals greater flexibility to manage cardiopulmonary test data in a single environment without additional IT installations or investments. In addition, the product provides a paperless solution that works seamlessly in today’s advanced healthcare IT environments.

The upgrade also offers improved workflow and user-friendly click-through installation. Other CPWS clinical modules include ambulatory blood pressure monitoring and exercise stress testing. Holter monitoring also is available through a seamless plug-in.
