At the American College of Cardiology annual meeting this week in Atlanta, McKesson highlighted its IT and automation solutions for cardiovascular disease care that now include a new hemodynamic monitoring system that helps cardiologists expedite patient charting and final reporting.
Horizon Cardiology Hemo is the new hemodynamic monitoring system that enables cardiologists to expedite patient charting and final reporting by automatically recording and monitoring the patient’s vital signs and data during a cardiac cath procedure. This automated workflow boost for the cath lab allows aggregation and display of cath lab images and data on a single workstation with a variety of customizable forms. It also provides real-time procedure notes charting, real-time customizable vitals charting that includes pain status and conscious sedation charting. It also can complete up to 90 percent of the final report — such as patient demographics, hemodynamic waveforms, cardiac images and procedural information – when integrated with Horizon Cardiology, the company’s cardiovascular image and information management system (CVIS) for cath, echo, nuclear cardiology and vascular ultrasound. Cardiologists can view a real-time report preview with side-by-side display of the final report and images. All images and data are stored in an integrated cardiac record. Other integration features with Horizon Cardiology Hemo include the tracking of inventory and supplies for each patient procedure to support proper billing and supply chain management.

McKesson also demonstrated for attendees its Horizon Medical Imaging is the flagship component of McKesson’s Horizon Radiology integrated RIS/PACS. And Horizon Ambulatory Care offers physician practice management, electronic prescribing and ambulatory health record solutions.
