Cardio Server: Your IDN's Enterprise-Wide Solution!

Posted by Shannon Richter on May 8, 2019 at 1:23 PM

Imagine using one software program to manage all the different cardio-pulmonary diagnostic tests in your organization from multiple hospital facilities. Epiphany’s Cardio Server simplifies clinical workflow by working with your current devices, electronic medical records (EMRs), and unique challenges.

Are you thinking about implementing an enterprise-wide healthcare IT solution? Epiphany has helped many enterprise hospital systems consolidate multiple ECG management systems and migrate legacy ECG data into Cardio Server. For example, Hospital Sisters Health System is a multi-institutional health care system comprised of 13 hospitals in 12 communities that chose Epiphany for their Enterprise ECG Management System. Indeed, many IDNs use Cardio Server as their workflow solution.

Maximize Your ECG Management System

Cardio Server is scalable and flexible. It can manage multi-modality, multi-vendor integrations within your enterprise. It has comprehensive HL7 messaging. Cardio Server supports multiple EMRs from different sites integrated through one single solution.  Epiphany communicates with all major EMRs, including:

Affinity

Clinview

HMS

NextGen

Vista

Allscripts

CPSI

Iatric

Opus

Siemens

Athena

eClinical

Keane

Prognosis

Meditech

Centricity

Eclipsys

McKesson

Pulse

Heartland

Cerner

Epic

Medhost

Quadramed

ChartMaxx

 

Easily Migrate To Cardio Server

For hospitals with an existing ECG management system, Epiphany can migrate your legacy data into Cardio Server.  Epiphany extracts ECGs from the source management system, processes the data, and then loads the processed ECGs into Cardio Server. After migration, you have full functionality on legacy data including serial comparison and calipers.

Beyond migration of legacy data, Cardio Server supports multiple time zones for enterprises that extend beyond a single region. It has flexible patient identification criteria for multi-sites lacking enterprise-wide, unique patient IDs. It can also be configured to link orders for inpatient procedures. Cardio Server can reside on your infrastructure and is compatible with your backup and virus protection plans. It is also completely nonproprietary when working with diagnostic devices.

Epiphany makes it easy to start using Cardio Server. When you pair that with Epiphany’s commitment to exceptional customer service, Cardio Server is an ideal enterprise solution for IDNs. Epiphany believes that interoperability in healthcare leads to better patient care.

7 Reasons Why Adding Sites to Your Cardio Server System is a Good Idea

Managing a multiple-hospital, enterprise-wide IT infrastructure is challenging. Epiphany offers broad flexibility to hospitals in this situation. 

Hospital groups usually have legacy devices from multiple manufacturers and want to avoid the expense of replacing these products. Epiphany is compatible with 260 devices from over 80 manufacturers supporting 23 diagnostic modalities, so you can leverage your existing devices, workflow, and infrastructure.

I'd Love a Demonstration!


Our customers have shared that in multiple-site systems, each hospital needs to be able to define its own workflow. Epiphany supports the ability to adjust Cardio Server to fit different workflow preferences for each site in a multiple-hospital implementation. Examples include:

  1. Epiphany migrates data from your legacy management systems and uses that data to provide serial comparison reports on diagnostic test results from different manufacturer‘s devices.
  2. HL7 messages, including order updates, preliminary results, image updates, final results, and billing messages, are transferred between multiple applications. For example, Cardio Server supports customized results for Epic, Cerner, Meditech, McKesson, and all other major EMR vendors.
  3. It is common in multiple-site hospital systems for patients to have different patient IDs from different sites. Cardio Server identifies a patient's previous studies, even if they were performed with a different patient ID in another site, by using patient name and date of study and other unique identifiers of your choice.
  4. Cardio Server can be configured to not require order linkage for outpatient and clinics studies, but to require orders for inpatient procedures. With our system, you can add not only your hospitals but your clinics and physician practices as well.
  5. Some physicians confirm studies within the exercise stress application. Epiphany enables those stress studies coming from the hospital/clinic to be received as “confirmed” and pass onto the EMR while allowing physicians at the other sites to confirm using Cardio Server.
  6. For university hospital systems, Epiphany has a workflow for cardiology fellows. The cardiology fellows receive a “usertype” unique to them that does not contain the ECG’s preliminary interpretation from the cardiograph. In this way, they are able to provide an unbiased interpretation before the reading MD confirms their work on the study. There is an additional option of a “training” version of Cardio Server, which strips interpretations from the ECGs, de-identifies patient information, and creates an archive of ECG training files for future use.
  7. Multiple time zones are supported for enterprises that extend beyond a single time zone.

Epiphany values feedback from our customers. Listening and learning from our customers has allowed us to be active, adapt, and expand the functionality of our products to be flexible in supporting multiple-site enterprises.
