Nicole Horve, Supervisor of Cardiovascular Services at St. John's Hospital in Springfield, Illinois recently relayed this success story to Epiphany Cardio.
While in church on a Sunday, Nicole received a call from the reading cardiologist stating that an ECG he had confirmed would not come out of the list. Logging into the hospital’s Cardio Server from her iPhone, Nicole found that the ECG had become un-linked from its order. She re-linked the ECG to its order, verified its promotion to the confirmed queue, and then called the cardiologist to let him know he could proceed with his interpretation and confirmation. She solved the problem and satisfied the physician’s request without having to leave church and go back to the hospital. All actions were performed in a matter of minutes.
Epiphany’s Cardio Server is a pure-web, browser-based application, meaning no special software is required to view ECGs or perform administrative functions. With proper security permissions from the Information Technology Department, physicians can use iPhones and other smart devices to visualize acute ECGs as they are notified of them. Beyond this important clinical use, having the power of the iPhone and Epiphany’s Cardio Server creates an easy way of performing system administration from any location that has cell service.
