Horizon Cardiology, a cardiovascular information solution (CVIS) from McKesson, enables improved quality of care, a boost in efficiencies and reduced costs while increasing physician and staff satisfaction. The system’s parallel workflows are the key to improving the adoption rate of structured data reporting for echocardiography, vascular ultrasound, nuclear cardiology, cardiac and peripheral catheterization, and ECG management.
In addition, McKesson provides a fully integrated hemodynamics monitoring system that populates the cardiovascular record without the need for interfaces. The design of Horizon Cardiology brings the workstation to the clinician through the Web, while the robust architecture is designed with business continuity for good uptime and server virtualization for decreased operating costs.
The latest release of Horizon Cardiology has extended the echocardiography module to include congenital reporting. This module includes new features that allow you to compare multiple Z-scores, graphically trend measurements, carry previous report information forward and much more.
Error-prone and time-consuming steps in the charge process can be eliminated with Horizon Cardiology Charge Manager. Rather than requiring multiple staff members to re-enter data into multiple systems for every procedure, this charge capture solution makes it possible to enter procedural data once, in a single system. As part of the Charge Manager workflow, the system instantaneously generates a charge audit worklist, simultaneously displays charges and reports on the same screen and supports technical and professional interfaces.
Horizon Cardiology includes fully integrated support for fractional flow reserve (FFR), automatically capturing results in a physician’s report. This helps eliminate the time and errors associated with manual data entry and ensures critical data is instantaneously available for review. This integrated FFR is designed to work within an existing infrastructure, eliminating dedicated FFR equipment and offering an immediate return on investment.
