Kardia Launches ConnectedCare Fee-per-Study Cardiovascular PACS

October 15, 2009 – Kardia Health Systems, today announced the availability of ConnectedCare, the first complete, online, fee-per-study cardiovascular information system (CVIS).

ConnectedCare combines structured reporting and picture archiving and communication systems (PACS) in an online solution. The company said this helps reduces information technology (IT) costs, while increasing efficiency and extending reach to more patients for practices of all sizes.

ConnectedCare is a comprehensive image management system for cardiology, including remote archiving, viewing, analysis and intelligent structured reporting, in one seamless solution. ConnectedCare includes Kardia's new ConnectedArchive, a unique remote archiving system that lets physicians edit and complete reports remotely, while eliminating the administrative task of implementing and maintaining a local archive. ConnectedCare provides plug and play integration with the widest range of cardiovascular modalities, instrumentation and EMR systems available.

The Web-based software gives doctors the ability to access full diagnostic quality DICOM images, edit and sign-off on their structured reports from home, on the road or any office location. This flexibility improves efficiency and quality of life for busy cardiologists. Wait time for retrieving large studies is eliminated, as ConnectedCare's technology identifies the studies cardiologists are expected to review, fetches them securely across the network and caches them onto the physician's computer in advance. Additionally, ConnectedCare is essential to mobile and multisite practices, by ensuring that critical patient information is accessible at all times, regardless of location.

ConnectedCare is priced on a fee-per-study basis, eliminating the large capital investment typically required for combined structured reporting PACS. Upfront costs often associated with CVIS are difficult to justify with the uncertainties around reimbursement, requirements and reform of healthcare today.
