St Peter’s Health Care Services Cardiac & Vascular Center of Albany, New York has announced a major upgrade to its Lumedx cardiovascular clinical information system to support seamless integration of cardiology picture archiving and communications systems.
The upgrade includes multi-modality images with data across the cardiovascular (CV) service line and health information systems, structured reporting, and web access to patient CV records.
St Peter’s has been a Lumedx client since 1996. The medical center’s implementation of the Lumedx technology encompasses cardiology information systems, device and enterprise interfaces, and workflow optimization tools to facilitate the collection, integration, and management of multiple types of data and images.
Installing Lumedx’ newest software releases will enable St Peter’s to better measure quality and deliver best practice patient care, and more effectively contain costs and manage resources.
A clinical data repository of cross-modality CV information serves as the core of Lumedx’ software suite, helping to foster data integration across the CV service line, and eliminate the problems associated with isolated silos of information, while providing both physicians and staff with easier access to the data.
Additional cardiology software includes an analytics outcomes dashboard that will improve the heart center’s analysis capabilities, and a physician documentation and structured reporting solution that enables physicians to complete reports at the point of care and electronically sign off at case end.
