Digital Workflow Transforms Cardiology

This progressive healthcare provider serving Nebraska and southwestern Iowa is made up of nine acute-care hospitals. Alegent's Heart and Vascular Institute at Bergan Mercy Medical Center and Immanuel Medical Center perform more heart procedures than any other provider in the Omaha area. The enterprise is a practical example of how digital cardiac workflow enabled by PACS, EMR and an Intelligent Information Infrastructure links cardiologists with crucial patient images and data. This means excellent door-to-balloon times, improved patient care and reduced cost.
