14 Jun Camtronics to integrate medical records at cardiology center
Hartland, Wis. — Camtronics Medical Systems has announced that its Vericis system will provide Integris Heart Hospital in Oklahoma with six terabytes of storage for digital cardiovascular images and other cardiology information.
The system will store about two year’s worth of study results, which clinicians will be able to access from workstations around the hospital or over the Web from outreach clinics. In such a distributed environment, the need for cross-platform compatibility becomes evident.
“Camtronics’ solution is flexible in its ability to interface with a diverse array of equipment, which in our case includes cath, echo and nuclear imaging systems from GE, Philips, and Siemens,” said P. Anthony Long, the hospital’s president. “It also addresses our desire to alleviate some of the pressures on our cardiologists – Web technology enables them to access and view patient information from their homes and offices.”
Camtronics claims Vericis is the first system to provide an integrated, longitudinal view of information about a patient’s cardiovascular care. It pulls together information from multiple locations and different types of tests to create a single record.
Long said Integris Heart Hospital’s physicians collaborated closely to select the system and vendor and has laid out a multi-phase plan to implement further monitoring systems over time. The hospital is part of Integris Baptist Medical Center.
Camtronics is the only Wisconsin-based subsidiary of Analogic Corporation, a manufacturer of health and security systems headquartered in Massachusetts with subsidiaries in the United States, Europe and Canada.
