Horizon Cardiology provides solutions to some of the challenges encountered by clinicians today, particularly to improve workflow. It provides improved interfacing, eliminates redundancies and gives clinicians the information they need to perform at maximum efficiency. Other improvements to workflow efficiencies include the charge manager, as well as improving the flow of information from the cath lab. McKesson also has been experimenting with development of an interface for the iPad. For more information: www.AllAboutCVIS.com
