Integrating CVIS Data and Images with Electronic Health Record Bridges Gaps in Enterprise Systems
OAKLAND, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- LUMEDX Corporation, a leading provider of vendor-neutral, interoperable cardiovascular imaging and information systems (CVIS), today announced a new integration framework designed to enable hospitals to help hospitals achieve meaningful use of their electronic health records. The Enabling the EHR Integration Suite makes it possible to capture detailed specialty data and images from all areas of the cardiovascular service line—and beyond—and export them to enterprise-level electronic health record systems (EHRs). By connecting cardiovascular information systems (CVIS) to enterprise-wide systems, the Enabling the EHR Integration Suite eliminates information gaps, delivers a radically streamlined workflow and supports quality-improvement initiatives.
The Enabling the EHR Integration Suite is a comprehensive portfolio of integration tools that transforms clinical and operational workflows. Here’s how:
- Imports ADT, Orders and HIS patient data as well as procedure results information, including external, non-cardiovascular data—oncology, radiology and more.
- Captures detailed cardiovascular clinical information—including dictated reports and images.
- Integrates laboratory, medications, history and other information with the results report.
- Exports results reports to the EHR/EMR.
- Enables analytics for outcomes improvement.
“We are drawing on one of our greatest strengths as a company—our ability to interoperate with virtually any system or device—to help our clients meet requirements for meaningful use of an electronic health record,” said LUMEDX Director of Marketing Randy Lasnick. “Within any healthcare service line or specialty, different systems and devices are continuously capturing different types of information. Collecting this information automatically and making it available throughout the care cycle facilitates better care coordination and efficiency. And because the data that our Integration Suite imports and exports is parsable for outcomes analysis, it can be used to improve quality of care and patient safety.”
“Improved care coordination, efficiency, care quality and patient safety: These are all requirements for meaningful use,” said Lasnick. “The Enabling the EHR Integration Suite also helps reduce IT costs by allowing hospitals to minimize the number of interfaces between their EHR and their devices.”
The LUMEDX Enabling the EHR Integration Suite is the latest workflow developed to help hospitals meet the growing demand for accessible data and sophisticated, user-friendly analytic tools.
