Philips to develop EMR for cardiology department

Philips Medical Systems has purchased CardioLogica, a cardiology information system developed by Cardiovascular Computer Systems, as part of a larger effort to develop an electronic medical record product. CardioLogica is a specialized information system that brings together cardiac images and clinical and administrative data via a centralized software suite. It provides modules for patient scheduling, automated report generation and distribution, and other administrative functions. It also merges modality data into a single electronic folder and integrates images with reports, other records, and other information systems within the hospital. CardioLogica will be incorporated into Philips’ Inturis for Cardiology image and information management system.

In related news, Philips has signed a contract with Talk Technology to enhance Philips’ Inturis for Radiology PACS with voice recognition capabilities tailored to radiology applications.
