Cardiac Monitor Reports
Whether monitoring patients on wireless telemetry, gathering cardiac baseline strips, or documenting drug deliveries, cardioversions and arrhythmias, physicians rely on this reporting to make critical decisions on patient treatment, workflow and discharge.
Cardiac monitor documentation: critical component of medical device integration (MDI)
Hospitals have invested millions in digitizing patient information by implementing electronic medical records (EMR), however, the manual process of documenting ECG strips hasn’t changed for decades. The process of printing paper strips along with copying, manually delivering and eventually scanning these documents causes physicians and nurses to have limited line-of-sight to this information. These delays and inefficiencies strain the workflow. They affect timely decision-making on treatment or patient discharge, increase the likelihood of inaccuracies, and impact the cost of care.
Excel Medical automates these tasks, providing critical data at the right time, to the right clinician, enabling safe patient handoffs for better decisions and better care.
Leveraging its BedMasterEx™ data acquisition platform, Excel has developed integration into clinical workflows to meet the needs of patient care areas in wireless telemetry, critical care, and central monitoring.
Excel integration with Philips Healthcare and GE Healthcare patient monitoring systems works seamlessly with major EMR vendors, including Epic, Cerner, MEDITECH and Allscripts.
Excel technology captures cardiac monitor waveforms and alarm documentation, and then integrates this data into the patient’s chart directly within the EMR.
Access to cardiac monitor reports enables safe patient handoffs and seamless communication of cardiac events to physicians, nurses and technicians. Hospitals also benefit from having timely digitized waveforms and alarm documentation accessible in the EMR for faster more efficient workflows and improved clinical decision-making.
