2013-12-02 18:07:14 - BJC Healthcare in St. Louis, Mo., will implement the Digisonics CVIS for an efficient, streamlined pediatric cath workflow.
BJC Healthcare in St. Louis, Mo., will implement the Digisonics cardiovascular information system (CVIS) for their pediatric cath studies. The Digisonics CVIS will provide the facility with a comprehensive clinical database, high-powered PACS and structured pediatric reporting in one complete system.
The Digisonics CVIS will provide BJC Healthcare with functionality designed specifically for the pediatric cardiology workflow including Mullins and Mayer congenital heart diagrams which can quickly be modified using graphical drawing tools and drop down labels. An added HemoLink interface between the Digisonics cardiovascular information system and the hospital’s hemodynamics system will autopopulate the demographics, hemodynamic measurements, medications and other data. Hemodynamic measurements including pressures and flow measurements will be autopopulated directly onto the congenital heart diagram for fast and
easy review. The Digisonics cardiovascular information system will also be integrated directly with Cedaron for IMPACT Registry data submission.
HL7 interfaces between the hospital’s EMR and the Digisonics cardiovascular information system will facilitate a fully electronic workflow. A DigiLink add-on to the HL7 Results Out interface provides their clinicians with access to PDFs of the finalized pediatric cath reports within their EMR. DICOM Modality Worklist will automate transfer of patient demographics to the facility’s imaging modalities, creating a list of scheduled patient studies and significantly reducing manual data entry time. Legacy images will be migrated and forwarded to BJC Healthcare’s vendor neutral archive. Access of archived images will be via Digisonics DICOM Query & Retrieve with Prefetch module.
