Cardiology data integration for improved insights

Cardiology data integration for improved insights

Healthcare providers today are pressed to predict, prevent and deliver better care for an increasing number of cardiovascular patients. Yet, they do so faced with barriers at nearly every turn. Clinicians, who are seeing patients with higher acuity levels and more co-morbidities1, are burdened with disconnected data and complex technology.


To deliver quality end- to-end cardiovascular care, to optimize care pathways, all of the various sources of data need to be collated, integrated and leveraged to support the operational and procedural goals of the department. This is a difficult challenge given the innate complexity of most hospital IT systems and the lack of interoperability between them2. Clinicians are spending valuable time behind a computer, using multiple different IT tools to ensure they have the fullest picture of the patient’s health.

Optimizing the length of stay in cardiology

Cardiovascular care delivery no longer hinges on individual department performance but on building bridges and bridging gaps that exist among providers, between sites, and across time. Read how we are partnering with hospitals to design and build new business and care models, to innovate care and manage risk.

Interoperable solutions connecting cardiovascular data

Centralized data for a more confident diagnosis

 

Connecting data across systems and using applications and technologies to uncover and respond to clinical insights

81%

of cardiology patients felt it important that the healthcare system in their country is integrated3

Heart icon
Connect disparate clinical systems with a cardiovascular information system (CVIS) to create richer clinical summaries and contextual presentations, including a diagnostic guidance application that operates during echocardiography reporting and warns of conflicts, inconsistencies, omissions, or patterns that could otherwise go unreported or be misreported.
Heart icon
Starting with an existing hospital EMR, through an HL-7 interface, tele-ICU software accesses patient data and provides essential information housed in a range of EMR systems and configurations.
Heart icon
Enable a seamless workflow from the modality to the workstation to the enterprise imaging system with image analysis software that includes various measurement packages to investigate, classify and document findings, which are read, mapped, verified and transferred to a report and the electronic patient record.

View longitudinal patient data over time in one place

 

A full picture of your cardiovascular patients’ care pathways.

Heart icon
Get access to relevant cardiovascular images and information anytime, virtually anywhere with a cardiovascular workspace that delivers a graphical, panoramic, chronological overview of a patients’ cardiovascular care continuum, including reports, images and other information related to each event via a single action on a timeline.
Heart icon
Census visualization tools in enterprise telehealth software represent distinct patients and assist in prioritizing patient assessments, while clinical forecasting tools identify patients whose vital sign patterns and characteristics indicate a statistical probability that the patient will require a cardiovascular or respiratory intervention in the next hour.
Heart icon
Access patient data at the point of care with image analysis software that efficiently generates reports and optimizes therapy decision. Fully automated measurements monitor changes in the end diastolic volume of heart failure patients throughout the course of the treatment.

Web-based multi-modality imaging data access

 

Access to clinical data from inside or outside the hospital for 24-hour reporting.

Heart icon
Users can access full diagnostic quality echo images via the web, so they can review patient’s echo images from their office or home. Cardiovascular software uses zero-footprint technology to provide access to images and includes wall motion scoring and findings in their reports, perform measurements, and even finalize reports anytime.
Heart icon
View ultrasound images from a stand-alone workstation, across the network, as part of a complete PACS/VNA/EMR integration or on the web outside the hospital. Care providers can access image data across entire health systems at any time.

3D heart modeling improves accuracy

 

A study of 180 patients across six sites provided evidence that Philips Heart Model AI technology could help save time and gather accurate data.

The evolution from 2D to 3D
in diagnostic imaging

 

With Philips IntelliSpace Portal advanced visualization platform, radiologists at Phoenix Children’s Hospital can take 2D and 3D images, efficiently take measurements and confidently diagnose. The Cardiac 3D Print Lab, a partner to Radiology at Phoenix Children’s Hospital, offers 3D printing and advanced post-processing technologies of images from Philips systems, which helps prepare physicians for complex procedures by creating accurate models of defective hearts, limb deficiencies, injured internal organs, and even tumors3.
