IDX launches cardiology PACS
IDX Systems Corp. premiered its Imagecast for Cardiology, an image and information management system designed specifically for cardiovascular departments and practices at this week's American College of Cardiology Conference, March 6 - 8, in Orlando, Fla.
Using a web-based, single database CVIS/PACS system, clinical staff throughout a hospital enterprise has continual access to complete patient cardiac images and information, including cardiac cath, echo, CT, MRI and nuclear medicine. In addition, the system provides physicians with access to all related images from the patient's electronic medical record, as well as other critical information - such as medical history and medication allergies.
Imagecast for Cardiology allows organizations to integrate third-party components through an open API framework while supporting industry standard protocols and open connectivity through Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise (IHE) cardiology initiatives, IDX said.
