Philips joins forces with Seattle Systems

Philips Medical Systems has announced a partnership with clinical information systems developer Seattle Systems. In an effort to provide hospitals with the ability to integrate x-ray images, patient monitoring, and other cardiological diagnostic data, Philips will combine its cardiac imaging systems and networks with Seattle Systems' cardiovascular information management systems.

The two companies already support such a system at Virginia Mason Medical Center, a 336-bed hospital in Seattle. Virginia Mason's Heart Center performs more than 2000 diagnostic and 600 interventional procedures a year, and its three catheterization laboratories use the Integris system from Philips. The hospital is also using the company's Inturis for Cardiology system to perform imaging exams online, and has discontinued its use of conventional cine film, according to the Best, Netherlands-based firm.
