By significantly speeding exam retrieval time -- in some cases up to 50 percent -- the quality and delivery of care is enhanced. The ECG Management Module is powered by Epiphany Cardiography cardiography /car·di·og·ra·phy/ (kahr?de-og´rah-fe) the graphic recording of a physical or functional aspect of the heart, e.g. .
Siemens Sensis: Data from the Siemens Sensis Hemodynamic system can now be imported directly into the Synapse ProSolv cardiovascular database as well as into the cardiac catheterization report template. This direct import of data saves time and reduces the potential of error by eliminating the need for manual data entry. In addition, integration with Siemens Sensis allows healthcare providers to capture information required for the ACC-NCDR(R) data registries for outcomes reporting. And when used with Synapse ProSolv cardiovascular's ACC-NCDR CathPCI Registry Module, the need to manually search for required submission data is eliminated, so valuable staff time can be focused on patient care.
