Cardiology

In your cardiology practice, providing quality care means carefully documenting and monitoring fluctuations in vital signs and symptoms over time. When considering an electronic health records system (EHR), you need a solution that allows you to capture detailed data at the point of care, as well as provide decision support for management of cardiovascular disorders.

With Vitera Intergy EHR, cardiology practices can:

  • Record important cardiovascular measurements such as ejection fraction as well as automated vital signs capture
  • Trend vital signs, symptoms, physical findings, ejection fraction, medications and laboratory results (such as INR) on a single flowsheet
  • Easily add, change or renew medications and use medication "favorites" by diagnosis -- even track those issued by the primary care physician
  • Set up clinical practice guidelines which provide reminders and orders sets for disorders such as coronary artery disease and congestive heart failure
  • Reduce transcription costs by using structured documentation through encounter forms while preserving the flexibility to dictate part or all of the note
  • Order and schedule common diagnostic tests like electrocardiogram (ECG), Cardiac Isotope Imaging (SPECT) and ultrasound
  • Streamline documentation by using detailed templates for common cardiac conditions - Move quickly between patients since multiple charts can be open at once
  • Use health reminders and alerts for preventive treatments
