WHY DO HOSPITALS NEED ECG MANAGEMENT?

WHY IS INTEROPERABILITY SO IMPORTANT?

Interoperability allows hospitals and doctors to share patient information through different IT channels. It decreases errors and breaks down communication barriers, adding value to healthcare. ECG Management Systems improve interoperability.

A good ECG Management System should manage several different modality types. Stress, Holter, PFT, and patient monitoring are some examples.

Do you pay for more software applications than necessary? 

Save your hospital money and IT resources by using one software program to manage diagnostic tests. Consolidate multiple device interfaces into one EMR integration. Manage the following modalities: Holter, stress, PFT, event monitoring, patient-monitoring/rhythm strip management, pacemaker follow-up, ICD management, cardiac rehab, sleep studies, ambulatory blood pressure, ECG, and more.
