Web-enabled cardiology system from Cardiac Science

2 October 2005

Bothell, Wash., USA. Cardiac Science Corporation has launched a web version of its Pyramis cardiology data management system.  Authorised users will be able to access cardiology data with full privileges fro anywhere. It will also allow further integration with the  Cerner Millennium hospital information system.

The system allows storage, editing, retrieval, and sharing of data from electrocardiographs, cardiac stress tests, Holter tests, and 12-lead ECGs from bedside monitors. In following the trend towards digitization of patient data, medical devices are being integrated with data management systems, allowing import of diagnostic data directly into patient records. Pyramis pulls together data from various diagnostic cardiology devices, allowing it to be integrated with other data management systems.

According to Kathryn Coleman, CCT, the Lead Tech for Noninvasive Cardiovascular Diagnostic Services at St. Agnes Hospital in Fresno, CA, "Pyramis has made it easier for our Medical Staff to read ECGs online, which in turn has improved our efficiency and productivity. We had a high level of physician satisfaction with the original system, but we're finding that they're even more pleased with the Web version."

"Over the past two years, we have made several improvements to Pyramis, including this new web version. We are very excited about the possibilities this will open up for our customers and, as a result, the potential for worldwide growth for our data management and device solutions. The new web version also supports our agreement with the Cerner Corporation by providing the communication infrastructure to seamlessly integrate our respective management systems," stated Atul Jhalani, Vice President of marketing.

In November, 2004 Cardiac Science (at the time Quinton Cardiology) announced a global value-added reseller agreement with the Cerner Corporation under which Cerner distributes the Pyramis data management system. As part of this agreement, Cerner will develop an interface to Pyramis with its hospital information system architecture, Cerner Millennium, expanding the ability of both companies to provide advanced, integrated solutions for managing cardiology data for hospitals and physicians' offices.
