Agfa HealthCare’s HeartStation ECG Management System has been fully installed at Caritas Good Samaritan Medical Center in Brockton, Mass. The system is a comprehensive data management solution that automates the processing and storage of electrocardiograms (ECGs). HeartStation provides the hospital’s physicians, technicians, and clinical staff with timely access to secure ECG exams and reports from any point on the enterprise network.
