Epiphany Delivers Modality Worklists for Burdick Cardiographs at Tennessee IDN

Posted by T. Dale Monroe on February 18, 2015 at 1:06 PM

Epiphany introduced Burdick ECG modality worklist in December 2014 to an integrated delivery network (IDN) in central Tennessee. This IDN had been using a Burdick/Cardiac Science Pyramis as its ECG management system for years. The modality worklists’ capability was an integral part of their workflow. They could not move away from Pyramis and keep using their Burdick carts without it.

Their Manager of Imaging Informatics described the importance of modality worklist as follows:

The primary benefits of using modality worklists are improved data integrity and appropriate patient care. Modality worklists provide specific patient demographic and order information to the ECG cart that is pre-populated on the cart and transferred either to the ECG printed copy or to any downstream ECG management systems. This is very important for ensuring data integrity. Utilizing modality worklist functionality eliminates typing errors, when manually entering patient information on an ECG cart, which could lead to patient mis-identification and possible improper treatment of a patient. Modality worklists lead to a cleaner medical record as they ensure the accuracy of the patient demographic data and can tie a specific ECG back to a specific order; [because the study automatically matches to the order, the clinician only touches the study one time]. Proper use of modality worklists also improves workflow for the ECG technicians as it is faster to pick the patient from the modality worklist than it is to type in all of the necessary demographic information. 

For Epiphany, this was no easy task. Our engineer, Vahid Talaie, is one of the foremost experts in the field of modality worklist integrations having created interfaces with six vendors in twelve modalities over the years. Vahid worked over 600 man-hours to deliver Burdick cardiograph modality worklists.

If you are considering moving away from Pyramis, we invite you to consider Epiphany. We are the only company in our business tha­­­t has invested in providing a solution and delivered Burdick ECG modality worklists. High volume or low, the speed, simplicity, and accuracy of modality worklists make it a valuable, must-have feature.

Flexibility is reflected throughout Epiphany, specifically with our integration with vendors. This flexibility allows us to connect with many different ECG carts. This means that multi-hospital/clinic organizations with various ECG cart vendors may not need to purchase new equipment in order to take advantage of Epiphany’s ECG management solution. If one hospital has one type of ECG cart but another hospital has a different type of ECG cart, it is not a problem; you can use your preferred equipment. We integrate with Burdick/Cardiac Science, GE, Mortara, Nihon Kohden, Philips, Schiller, Norav, and Welch Allyn ECG carts. If you do not see your vendor on this list, just ask! As hospitals continue to expand through acquisition of other facilities including clinics, one less thing to worry about is capital expenditure for new ECG carts.

Another bonus of integrating with a variety of cart vendors is the cost benefit of not having to retrain staff on new carts. We all know that training staff on new equipment can be a costly and timely venture. By using your current carts, that expense is no longer a worry.

You also get to keep the features you like on your current carts, for example, the algorithms used for provider interpretation. Providers get used to the way the cart interprets ECGs. By keeping your current carts, providers do not need to change the way they interpret their studies. 

As technologies evolve and hospitals continue to grow, an organization could end up with a variety of ECG carts. Epiphany has the ability to integrate with those systems so they continue to work seamlessly for you.
