Streamline Your Ultrasound Workflows

McKesson Cardiology™ Echo and Vascular Ultrasound streamlines sonographer and physician throughput while helping to improve patient care. A major echocardiography software workflow improvement is the reduction in time the physician needs to review and complete the report through the robust web-enabled reporting module.

Here's how the system works:
  • DICOM modality work lists send orders to the ultrasound cart
  • The cart sends DICOM Images and Structured Reports (SR) to McKesson Cardiology
  • One central cardiac patient file holds all of this information, including images, measurements and other ultrasound machine data
  • Report fields are prepopulated and finalized reports can be sent back to the patient's medical record
The end result? No more video and paper-and a drastic reduction in data entry errors.

McKesson Cardiology Echo and Vascular Ultrasound are part of the comprehensive Cardiovascular Imaging and Information System (CVIS), a single solution joining cardiac and peripheral catheterization, hemodynamics monitoring, nuclear cardiology and ECG management. The echocardiography software system seamlessly integrates with RIS/PACS, inventory, billing, orders, and work lists to ensure accurate and timely transfer of patient information.
