April 1, 2008 - Mortara Instrument will integrate its DICOM ECG modalities with ScImage’s enterprise-wide PACS, PicomEnterprise, hoping to better protect the customer from device obsolescence and decoupling the choice of information management solution from device solution.
The Mortara ELI series electrocardiographs to communicates directly with the ScImage solution, in turn, transmitting to the PicomEnterprise PACS solution for workflow management, reporting and storage of the DICOM ECG object with results reporting to the hospital information system. The ECG test will then be accessible by the clinician and physician to view the ECG in context with other test results and images stored within the PicomEnterprise archive.
These tests can include but are not limited to echo, cath, vascular exams, nuclear cardiology and hemodynamic reporting. ScImage’s PicomEnterprise solution also integrates with other DICOM ECG modalities including Mortara stress and Holter products. Testing and integration of the DICOM ECG solution between the two companies has been ongoing with installations in North America. The solutions are available with both the PicomEnterprise and PicomOnline solutions from ScImage.
