Patient Monitoring Workflow Streamlined With Epiphany’s New Rhythm Strip Management Solution

Posted by Allison Fawber on August 23, 2018 at 9:56 AM

If you scan rhythm strips into your EMR, you know this is a labor-intensive and costly process. Epiphany now offers the ability to automatically store rhythm strips from your central monitoring station in your EMR.

Rhythm_Strips_trash.pngEpiphany’s Rhythm Strip Management solution (RSM) takes rhythm-strip data in PDF format from the Philips Information Center (PIIC and PIIC iX) and automatically transfers the rhythm strips to the EMR as an unsolicited HL7 result. This is an elegant solution for the end user, considering the number of problems it solves for a hospital’s rhythm strip management workflow. 

At many hospitals, rhythm strip management workflow looks like this:

RNs and monitoring techs have to manually print, cut, and paste the rhythm strips; they often hand write a validation signature on those strips. Rhythm strips then have to be copied and scanned so that they can be viewed in the EMR. For those using a telemetry cockpit, complex workflows exist due to the volume of patients that are being monitored.

Epiphany’s RSM solution:

With Epiphany’s RSM, no more printing, pasting, or scanning is necessary. The costs associated with scanning and paper (thermal strip chart recorder or 8.5 x 11) are eliminated. The RN strip–validation process can occur in the EMR or in Epiphany. The rhythm strips are automatically transferred and quickly available in the EMR.  Epiphany’s RSM supports an unlimited number of rhythm strips per patient. Overall, after implementing Epiphany’s RSM, workflow is faster, accurate, and more efficient.

3 Easy Ways to Make Your Hospital More Efficient

Is the hospital you work for your home away from home?  Do you want your hospital to be the best it can be?  Do you see room for improvement but don’t know how to improve the efficiency of your hospital?

Most efficiency problems in any industry come down to one thing—communication.  The old saying, 'communication is the key to any good relationship,' also applies to the doctor/patient relationship.

If you can improve communication processes, you could cut costs while improving healthcare.  More fluid communication can reduce the time it takes for nurses and doctors to do their jobs.  More fluid communication allows doctors the ability to provide patients with more timely test results and care to reduce patients’ fear while waiting for the unknown.  

Here are three easy ways to streamline your hospital's communication and workflow.

Make Your Hospital More Efficient by Simplifying Your Cardiology Workflow

Epiphany’s Cardio Server ECG Management System

Leave paper and the delays in its processing in the past.  Epiphany's Cardio Server ECG Management System has an intuitive user interface and is IT friendly.  It allows you to pull up ECG data and other diagnostic test results from anywhere in the hospital.  You can view ECGs from an iPhone or iPad or leverage our new Cardio Server Mobile Application.  This digital access eliminates the need for paper copies.  A doctor can easily pull up results at the patient’s bedside with a touch of a screen.

Make Your Hospital More Efficient by Going to Paperless Rhythm Strips

Rhythm Strip Management

Epiphany's Rhythm Strip Management provides a solution to the labor-intensive challenges of patient monitoring strip management.  The application eliminates paper and the time it takes to cut it, scan it, file it, and read it.  Again, paper belongs in the past.  Anyone with access can pull up rhythm strips digitally and instantly.  This instant access reduces time and streamlines communication.

More timely communication makes hospitals more efficient.  Using these three, or even just one of these solutions, will streamline your hospital's communication.  Healthcare technology such as these applications will significantly improve the care-delivery experience for both the doctor and the patient.
