BOTHELL, Wash., April 1, 2008 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Cardiac Science (Nasdaq: CSCX), a global leader in advanced cardiac diagnosis, resuscitation, rehabilitation, and informatics products, announced today that it signed a letter of intent to begin establishing Heartcentrix(R) ECG connectivity with the Misys MyWay(TM) electronic medical record (EMR) system from Misys Healthcare.
Misys Healthcare serves more than 100,000 physicians in 18,000 practice locations. "Misys MyWay integrates EMR, practice management, and claims management to offer a simple, affordable, complete solution for physicians and clinicians," Paul Edge, Vice President, Clinical Solutions for Misys Healthcare said. "With this agreement, thousands of our customers have the potential to access information from new or currently installed Burdick and Quinton electrocardiograph (ECG) devices, stress systems, and Holter devices while using our Misys MyWay EMR systems."
The HeartCentrix solution from Cardiac Science helps bring patient history, clinical charting, e-prescribing, lab orders, results, and patient follow-up information together into a single EMR application. "We designed HeartCentrix to streamline diagnostic cardiology workflow," said Greg Newman, senior marketing manager for Cardiac Science. "Ultimately, the patient benefits. With streamlined integration, physicians have easier access to information, faster results, and fewer chances for operator error, patients receive a higher standard of care."
