Date:3/30/2009

New DICOM solutions can connect Q-Stress and Q-Tel cardiac rehab to healthcare information systems

BOTHELL, Wash., March 30 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Cardiac Science (Nasdaq: CSCX), a global leader in advanced cardiac diagnosis, resuscitation, rehabilitation, and informatics products, today added DICOM connectivity to its Quinton Q-Stress cardiac stress testing system and Quinton Q-Tel cardiac rehabilitation system.

"With DICOM and HL7 technologies, Cardiac Science is prepared to serve the hospitals and physicians ready to take advantage of the Economic Stimulus Bill," Director of Diagnostic Marketing for Cardiac Science Rene Mitchell said. "This is another critical step in our path to be the diagnostic connectivity leaders."

The Quinton Q-Stress can now connect to hospital information systems (HIS) and electronic medical records (EMR) in the way that works best for each practice or hospital. Among its benefits,

  • Less administration: Demographics, billing, and procedure codes can be imported via bi-directional communication using DICOM or HL7.
  • Fewer errors and lost billing: Comprehensive tests can be exported to minimize documentation errors.
  • Interoperability: Q-Stress can connect to virtually any EMR, HIS, PACS, and other healthcare systems including GE Muse.
  • Easy implementation: Little to no HIS customization is required.
  • Easy maintenance: There is little to no difficulty updating links as an HIS evolves.

First to offer DICOM connectivity to cardiac rehab segment

Cardiac Science is the first to offer DICOM connectivity to the cardiac rehabilitation segment. With the addition of DICOM and HL7 technology, Q-Tel now supports all the latest industry standards for connectivity.

"More cardiac rehab centers will connect their patient records to HIS systems. Our DICOM and HL7 connectivity options will make the move much easier," Mitchell added.
