12 Questions to Determine How "Open" ECG Management Vendors Are

Posted by Russ DeRemer on June 24, 2014 at 4:51 PM

From the President’s Desk:

As more vendors open their ECG Management systems to support modality worklists to third-party cardiographs, there are questions you may want to ask to determine how “open” their systems really are.

Does the vendor provide the same functionality for third-party cardiograph ECG data as they do for their own? Epiphany does not sell devices and treats all vendors’ ECG data equally.

Do the ECGs from third-party vendors support: 

  1. Serial comparison reporting?
    Epiphany - Yes                                        Vendor?
     
  2. Electronic calipers and re-measuring intervals (e.g.,STEMI and QTc)?
    Epiphany - Yes                                        Vendor?
     
  3. Reformatting ECG layout?
    Epiphany - Yes                                        Vendor?
     
  4. Changing the rhythm strip?
    Epiphany - Yes                                        Vendor?
     
  5. Adjusting the gain?
    Epiphany - Yes                                        Vendor?
     
  6. Modifying filters?
    Epiphany - Yes                                        Vendor?
     
  7. Viewing at a 50mm sweep speed?
    Epiphany - Yes                                        Vendor?
     
  8. Removing pacemaker artifacts?
    Epiphany - Yes                                        Vendor? 
     
  9. Do these capabilities apply to legacy data that has been migrated?
    Epiphany - Yes                                        Vendor?
     
  10. Is the modality worklist functionality embedded in the system? (rather than provided by a third-party vendor)
    Epiphany - Yes, embedded                       Vendor?
     
  11. Who provides support for the modality worklist technology?
    Supported by Epiphany                            Vendor?
     
  12. Does the modality worklist functionality require additional server technology?      
    Epiphany - No                                         Vendor?
