Connected cardiology solution provides holistic view of patient care across the entire cardiovascular journey
Royal Philips (NYSE: PHG, AEX: PHIA) today announced the European debut of IntelliSpace Cardiovascular, a web-enabled image and information management system that provides sophisticated tools to access, analyze and share cardiovascular images and information anytime, from virtually anywhere. Showcased at the Philips Booth (#G200) during ESC Congress 2015, IntelliSpace Cardiovascular marks the next generation of image and cardiology informatics solutions, serving as a nexus of interoperability that allows all care team members to access data and launch sophisticated clinical applications, like IntelliSpace Portal, or IntelliSpace ECG within a single workspace.
"IntelliSpace Cardiovascular enables clinicians to take a holistic view of the patient's cardiovascular journey with one workspace and the ability to dive deeper into more clinical depths," said Yair Briman, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Healthcare IT for Philips. "This includes accessing other third party applications, providing a comprehensive view of the patient, which helps enable care givers to deliver better patient care."
Improving interoperability to enhance collaboration
By centralizing patient data from different areas of the hospital, IntelliSpace Cardiovascular helps facilitate a streamlined workflow and improve patient care. The new way information is displayed allows all care team members to view the patient's history spanning diagnosis, treatment and therapy, fostering collaboration and potentially eliminating unnecessary and repetitive tests.
IntelliSpace Cardiovascular can be easily incorporated into the existing infrastructure to provide clinical depth without adding complexity. Its scalable design allows clinicians to adapt the solution as their needs evolve. IntelliSpace Cardiovascular offers a suite of interoperable clinical modules designed to help improve workflow across the entire cardiovascular service line from virtually anywhere. Built-in echocardiography reporting features give cardiologists the ability to identify and eliminate inaccuracies within reports.
