Happy Doctor’s Day!

Posted by Holly Allen on March 26, 2018 at 11:43 AM

Have you heard of National Doctor’s Day?  This national holiday took 58 years to become more than just a local holiday.  National Doctor’s Day is celebrated on March 30th in the United States and praises physicians for the work they do supporting their patients and their communities.  On this day, Epiphany would like to take a moment to thank each and every provider for their diligence to detail, timely diagnosis, and passion for the wellness of their patients who are our family.

Doctor gift.jpgThe first Doctor’s Day can be traced back to a small town in Georgia called Winder.  On March 30, 1933 Eudora Brown Almond, the wife of a prominent Georgian doctor, wanted to create a day to recognize and honor doctors.  She mailed greeting cards to all of the doctors she knew and even placed flowers on the graves of deceased physicians. The flowers she placed on the graves of these doctors that are still used to celebrate National Doctor’s Day today are red carnations.

Even though this day was celebrated locally since 1933, it wasn’t a national holiday until Congress passed Proclamation 6253 in 1991.  March 30th was chosen because Dr. Crawford W. Long used an ether anesthetic for the first time on this day during surgery in 1842.

Epiphany would like thank the many providers who utilize Cardio Server on this special day.  We love hearing your feedback whether it be the ease of access from anywhere on any device including computers, tablets, or mobile devices or feedback regarding our features such as our advanced calipers.

We are happy to serve over 850 hospitals allowing providers to devote more time with their patients and less time on the clerical tasks.  Happy Doctor’s Day to each of you!

Lock Haven Hospital Has An Epiphany

Posted by Holly Allen on March 7, 2013 at 1:52 PM

Technology Optimizes ECG Workflow 

Lock Haven, PA – The Lock Haven Hospital cardiopulmonary department recently acquired new technology to enhance patient care: Cardio Server from Epiphany Cardio. Cardio Server is an award-winning management tool for electrocardiograms (ECGs). The web-based application turns a manual, time consuming task into quick, electronic clicks. In addition to saving the cardiopulmonary department time and valuable resources, Cardio Server has made patient information more accessible.

The ECG management ways of the past were very time consuming at Lock Haven Hospital. After each ECG was performed, a technician had to manually print three copies of the ECG on thermal paper. The technician had to then manually place carbon paper between each of the three printed copies. Then the technician had to wait for a physician’s interpretation. The carbon paper allowed the physicians to save time by documenting their interpretations only once per ECG rather than three times, but the carbon often left messy residue and was not the most efficient process.

With the implementation of Cardio Server the process can now be completed with a few,Physicians using Cardio Server to read ECGs online clean computer clicks. Once the technician has performed the ECG, the physician can view and interpret the test and then electronically confirm/sign online whether on site or not. The physician is also able to quickly access previous ECG tests for comparison when continuing care on the same patient. For back-up measures, Cardio Server electronically distributes a paper copy of each ECG to medical records without anyone having to perform an additional click. 

“As we continue to evolve and expand our cardiac care relationships with the providers from Susquehanna Health Systems onsite at Lock Haven Hospital, the Epiphany system allows us to better serve patient needs when critical minutes can make a difference,” said John Zidansek, Chief Executive Officer, Lock Haven Hospital. “Cardio Server’s innovative technology provides more timely results and diagnostic capabilities for digital electrocardiograms and allows physicians to optimize cardiac care.”

What Doctors Say About Epiphany’s Cardio Server

Posted by Holly Allen on January 28, 2013 at 3:00 PM

I joined Epiphany Cardio as a Clinical Training Specialist (“CTS”) in 2012. One of the best parts of my job is watching the positive reaction to our product from physicians in many different specialties. Recent training sessions occurred at Salem Township Hospital in Salem, IL (a 46 bed, critical access hospital) and Maine Coast Memorial Hospital in Ellsworth, ME (a 48 bed, acute care hospital).

At Salem Township Hospital, Gautam Jha, MD (Internist) stated “it is fast.” Within two clicks, Cardio Server is opened and asking for your login information. Although Dr. Jha stated his reluctance to learn yet another program to access patient information, just moments into his one-on-one training with an Epiphany CTS, he arose from his chair with a smile, shook hands with the trainer, and said “This is very acceptable.”

Robert Beekman, MD (Pediatric Medicine) from Maine Coast Memorial Hospital took out his pen and paper to manually calculate the QTc interval of the ECG he was reading. He was pleasantly surprised when his manual calculation matched the calculation provided by the caliper tool within Cardio Server. This meant he would no longer have to carry around his caliper tool in his lab coat pocket. Dr. Beekman was also pleased to create a list of favorite statements that he can quickly click on to build his interpretation for each study, minimizing the amount of time he has to spend typing.

Kathryn Resenbrink, MD (Internal Medicine) at Maine Coast exuded the same excitement after spending time clicking through Cardio Server. As she finished, she threw her hands up in celebration as she would no longer have to read ECGs on paper! JosephEpiphany's Cardio Server is Intuitive Nabonzy, MD (Family Practice) at Maine Coast walked away with a smile, stating “I think I can do it!” Daniel Reinke, MD (Emergency Medicine) at Maine Coast said, “I have a good feeling about this.” Their collective enthusiasm was evident on the day Cardio Server went live. The Director of CardioPulmonary, Tina Reiff, also witnessed the users’ excitement by watching them clear out the inbox the first day Cardio Server went live.

These are just a few of the positive responses we receive from our end users. The speed and ease of Cardio Server assists physicians with patient care in hospitals around the world.
