McKesson launches CVIS
McKesson has released McKesson Cardiology 13.0, a single database system for cardiac and peripheral catheterization, hemodynamics monitoring, electrophysiology, echocardiography, vascular ultrasound, nuclear cardiology and ECG/stress/holter management.

The system integrates data, including pre-procedure and intra-procedure information and physician reporting to American College of Cardiology’s National Cardiac Data Registry, and makes it available to physicians to review or share with other caregivers, according to McKesson.

The release includes a module to provide documentation, billing and inventory management. A barcode scan updates clinical documentation, generates charges, adjusts stock levels and electronically sends orders to the hospital materials management system.
