Its unique single platform design consolidates data from multiple sources to eliminate redundant data entry and provide a complete cardiovascular electronic medical record (EMR) including images, reports, waveforms, along with integrated charge capture and inventory management. The design helps to provide improved efficiency, reduce potential errors and improve charge capture for both technical and professional services.

The McKesson Cardiology integrated cath lab and cardiac imaging environment is comprised of the following modules:

  • CVIS - a complete, multi-modality cardiac imaging and reporting platform for coronary, peripheral vascular and electrophysiology procedures
  • Holding Area Charting – a module to document both the pre and post procedure holding area information. It captures the data at the point of care, including automatic vitals import from the bedside monitors
  • Hemodynamic Monitoring – supporting patients of all ages for coronary, peripheral vascular and electrophysiology procedures
  • Nurse Charting Solution – allows for parallel procedural documentation of medications, saturations, notes and inventory usage, by the in-room staff
  • Inventory Management – a point-of-use solution that with a single barcode scan will automatically update clinical documentation, generate charges from the physician report, adjust stock levels and electronically send orders, saving time and reducing operational costs

McKesson Cardiology Cath Helps to

  • Improve clinical decision-making and patient care by aggregating all cardiac imaging solutions and information sources into one patient-centric database
  • Enhance workflow by ensuring rapid access to complete and accurate images and information over local or remote networks
  • Reduce redundant data entry and risk of error with the single instance of data entry. The single platform provides access to that data from any location or module
  • Streamline all patient care and administrative processes, resulting in unmatched productivity
