"With IntelliSpace Cardiovascular, we now have a much more integrated application where Cardiology talks to Radiology,” said John Hayes, Head of IT, Blackrock Clinic, Dublin, Ireland. “The integration with our patient management system and remote access means our internal workflows are more efficient and the housekeeping for the applications is far better.”
Building on existing browser-based reporting capabilities for adult stress echocardiogram tests, the addition of the web-based pediatric module to IntelliSpace Cardiovascular 4.1 provides a complete echo solution that aggregates data into one system. The pediatric module also includes new z-score packages, which are a common way to chart serial measurements in pediatric cardiology practices. The new z-scores available through this solution provide clinicians with the most up-to-date information to respond to patients more quickly to help improve care delivery. Through deep integration with Philips Forcare, which provides open-standards-based interoperability software, IntelliSpace Cardiovascular 4.1 enables the seamless and secure sharing of patient data across systems and hospitals in near real-time.
“Treating pediatric cardiac patients can be a very emotional and challenging experience as they are one of the most vulnerable patient populations,” said Amir Hasan, Business Leader, Cardiology Informatics at Philips. “With IntelliSpace Cardiovascular 4.1, we build on our commitment to provide fast and seamless data flow to enable clinicians to better care for these children with improved information access, data sharing and collaboration across the entire cardiology team.”
IntelliSpace Cardiovascular is available globally. In North America and other select markets, Philips IntelliSpace Cardiovascular is also available as part of IntelliSpace Enterprise Edition, Philips’ next-generation enterprise-wide health informatics platform, which combines Philips IntelliSpace Radiology and Cardiology portfolios, as well as PerformanceBridge, Oncology Informatics, IntelliSpace Genomics and IntelliSpace Exchange.
