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! Joseph 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.
