eCardio Launches NEW Atrial Fibrillation Information System (AFIS(TM))
Date:5/15/2009

First Comprehensive Software Application to Offer Single Platform for AF Patient Management

BOSTON, May 15 /PRNewswire/ -- eCardio Diagnostics (www.ecardio.com) announced the launch of its NEW Atrial Fibrillation Information System (AFIS(TM)) today at Heart Rhythm 2009, the Annual Scientific Sessions of the Heart Rhythm Society. AFIS(TM) is an informatics solution that presents a longitudinal view of atrial fibrillation and tachyarrhythmic patients for teaching, research or clinical management. It is the first comprehensive software application to gather all associated clinical information in one place for AF patient management.

"Managing patients with atrial fibrillation is a daunting task, requiring the physician to evaluate numerous data sources, such as films, sonogram images and ECG reports," noted Nassir Marrouche, MD, Director of the Atrial Fibrillation Program at the University of Utah School of Medicine. "We developed AFIS(TM) to provide a single-platform application that not only gathers relevant clinical information in one place, but also provides a number of analytical tools to enable doctors to provide the best care for our patients."

Designed specifically to meet the needs of electrophysiologists in academic medicine, AFIS(TM) captures imaging, monitoring, procedural reports, clinic notes and patient history to provide clinicians with the most longitudinal data set on which to render treatment decisions. AFIS(TM) provides multi-factorial analysis tools for:

  • Data mining for clinical research;
  • Participation in the first international AF Registry;
  • Calculation of left atrial scar; and
  • Clinical management of the AF patient.

AFIS(TM) has been developed in collaboration with the University of Utah School of Medicine and is overseen by the Atrial Fibrillation Physician Advisory Board whose members include:

  • Nassir Marrouche, MD, Chair, Director of the Atrial Fibrillation Program, University of Utah School of Medicine
  • Oussama Wazni, MD, Electrophysiology Lab Director, Cleveland Clinic Foundation
  • Kalyanam Shivkumar, MD, PhD, Director of the Cardiac Arrhythmia Center, UCLA School of Medicine
  • Edward Gerstenfeld, MD, Cardiovascular Division, University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine
  • Professor Dr. Johannes Brachmann, MD, Chief of Cardiology, Med Klinik Klinikum Coburg
  • Nathan Segerson, MD, Kitsap Cardiology Consultants

AFIS(TM) will be installed at a select number of institutions in 2009 and will be available at additional centers next year.
