Featuring the industry's most robust cardiology knowledgebase, the NextGen EMR system is used by more than 1,500 clients nationwide -- including many leading cardiology practices. These current clients, as well as future clients, will be readily able to take advantage of connectivity to the HeartCentrix(R) informatics software. In addition, the integration will be leveraged through the tens of thousands in Cardiac Science's installed base of customers.

Designed to integrate seamlessly EMR and other information systems, HeartCentrix solutions help streamline workflow in multiple health care environments. HeartCentrix -- which enables seamless data transfer from Burdick(R) and Quinton(R) electrocardiograph (ECG) devices, cardiac stress, and Holter monitoring devices to physician EMR software -- can be installed with a new NextGen EMR implementation, or just as easily into an existing NextGen account.

Tony Titus, Cardiac Science vice president of marketing, reported that HeartCentrix and NextGen recently began deployment for their first joint installation, a multi-site cardiology practice of more than 60 physicians. "Pairing HeartCentrix with NextGen connects diagnostic devices and EMR systems together for office-wide efficiencies, and a greater ROI on the EMR investment," he said.

"HeartCentrix is a great solution for our clients who rely on Burdick and Quinton diagnostic devices in particular," said Debra Dore, director of cardiology products for NextGen. "Bringing information from HeartCentrix into the NextGen EMR platform will enable a smoother office workflow, faster diagnosis and therapeutic decision-making and, ultimately, better patient care."
